"Derek Dames Ohl is like warm butter on hot bread with blustering conduct. As a modern-day herald, Derek keeps his roots close with a six-string on his back, ping-ponging across the United States, sharing songs at every bar or dive that dares. His sounds eclipse and perfect everything from Country, Blues, and Honky-Tonk. His pride lies in keeping the American roots music tradition alive, with punchy guitar playing that'll surely leave listeners stomping the floorboards. Derek has been compared to artists like John Prine and Guy Clark with his quirky one moment, and woeful the next, songwriting style."
