Back with the Blues
Brad DeHart was born on New Year's Eve in the musically rich city of New Orleans and grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, the heart of the Cajun country. From a very early age, he had a definite love for music and enjoyed listening to his father's records on an old hi-fidelity system. Brad began his musical career in the late 60's playing in a rock and roll band called The Persian Market which featured Keith Thibodeaux (Little Ricky of 'I Love Lucy' fame) on drums. The band enjoyed regional popularity in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. In 1969, Brad became a solo act and exited the decade with a performance at Luxembourg Gardens in Paris, France. Performing has taken Brad from his roots in Louisiana to cities in Europe, and these musical experiences have given him new ways to let people hear and feel where he's coming from. Other than jamming occasionally with family and friends, Brad left his music behind in 1973 to pursue a different career and raise a family. Fast forward to present and Brad is literally "BACK WITH THE BLUES" (the title of his latest release). The CD was originally introduced in 2005, and due to popular demand, was re-released in 2009. 'BACK WITH THE BLUES' is a trip down memory lane with blues classics like 'Stormy Monday', 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' and 'Steamroller Blues'. Strong vocals and an extended vocal range are the driving forces that allow Brad to confront each song with vigor, power and passion. 'BACK WITH THE BLUES' is sold in the USA only.
