Now into his second half century as the warrior music journalist, Don Wilcock began his career writing “Sounds from The World” in Vietnam, a weekly reader’s digest of pop music news for grunts in the field for the then largest official Army newspaper in the world, The Army Reporter. He’s edited BluesWax, FolkWax, The King Biscuit Times, Elmore Magazine, and also BluesPrint as founder of the Northeast Blues Society. Internationally, he’s written for The Blues Foundation’s Blues Music Awards program, Blues Matters and Blues World. He wrote the definitive Buddy Guy biography 'Damn Right I’ve Got The Blues,' and is currently writing copy for a coffee table book of watercolor paintings of blues artists by Clint Herring.
It’s almost as if D. K. has lived 40 years in his first 20 before signing with Little Village, the label that’s fast-tracked him into the limelight.
The 11 cuts on ‘The Right Man’ are all original songs mostly about relationships that cut deeper than most blues classics.
Five artists appearing at King Biscuit Blues Festival record for Little Village: D. K. Harrell, Sonny Green, Memphissippi Sounds, Tia Carroll, and Candice Ivory.
