The new CD has arrived on my doorstep and it's time to give long overdue
thanks to all who participated on the project. Everyone was equally
important but I have to start somewhere.....so.....thanks to:
The Reverend and Travis Stephenson for co-writing with me and for a
rightous job of pickin. We put some great songs together. The proof
is in the pudding.
Jack Saunders for his vision. Every train needs an engineer and the
Delta Flyer ain't no different. His production as well as his work
on guitar, bass guitar, reso and vocals is greatly appreciated. Jack
is a gifted songwriter and musician and will be having a CD Release
Party for his new offering, "Livin' For The Sunshine", at the Mucky
Duck on Friday, March 30th. Please come out and support him if you
can. Jack and I will continue to work together as long as he'll have
me. Check him out at www.jacksaunders.com
Rick Poss for bringing the songs alive with his guitar work. Rick
has an impressive set of credentials and has played and toured with
some great musicians. I'm honored to have him on Delta Flyer and
look forward to working with him in the future. Rick will be playing
with Jack at the Mucky Duck. You can also check him out at
and be on the lookout for his CD to be released
Rick Richards for his ability to stay rock steady on drums in the
middle of a train wreck. God bless him. Rick is out and about with
Ray Wylie Hubbard and was kind enough to spend one of his days off to
work on this project. Rick will also be with Jack at the Mucky Duck.
Riley Osbourne for his keyboard work. As far as I'm concerned, Riley
is as good as it gets. Check out the solo on "Harder Than A Fat Man". Riley is currently on tour with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, but was able to
make time for us. If you catch one of Kenny Wayne's shows, it will be
Kaz Kazanoff for blowing just the right notes on "Please Think Of
Me". When I heard we were getting Kaz to do the Sax solo, I almost
fell out. Kaz and The Texas Horns have been recently been working
with Los Lonely Boys and are a fixture at several Blues Festivals. I've got several songs lined up for a full horn section on the next
CD and the Texas Horns are the ticket. Check out Kaz and the boys at
Eleanor Whitmore for the beautiful fiddle work on "Driving Rain". Eleanor really nailed it. She will also be appearing with Jack at
the Mucky Duck on the 30th. It'll be nice to see her play again. You can check out Eleanor at her myspace page, www.myspace.com/eleanorwhitmoremusic
Last, but certainly not least......
Tommie Lee Bradley for kickin' ass on our duet and for all the great
vocal harmonies. I don't need to write a long paragraph about
Tommie. Listen to the songs.
Janet Z for the vocal harmonies. Janet came to one of the studio
sessions, got sequestered and did a great job on short notice. Check
Janet's music out at www.thejanetz.com
I'm starting to write with both of these ladies and you'll be hearing
from us shortly. It ought to be one killer sound.
You'll be able to get the new CD, Stevie DuPree - Delta Flyer, at
CDbaby, Outbound Music and MyTexasMusic next month. Gimme a hug and
you might get one for free !!
Thanks again to all of you, and to friends, family and fans for your
Boogie till you drop,
