Derrick Dove And The Peacekeepers By Joshua Wallace.

Derrick Dove & The Peacekeepers are a new regional southern rock outfit out of Tifton, GA.  They bring a sound that is a mix of softer southern rock and blues rock.  Derrick Dove’s voice is as smooth as the guitar playing on this record and it’s a good debut effort.  If you like your southern rock on the smoother side like Tedeschi Trucks Band or Gregg Allman, you’ll dig this one for sure.

The album kicks off with a road song in “Ramblin’ Soul” in one of the heavier tracks on the album.  There is some nice solo work at the beginning to let you know what you can expect going forward.  Another favorite is one of the album’s singles “So Strong”.  This song is about the struggles of a loving relationship and is a very smooth southern rock track.

The first thing anyone heard from the album is the acoustic ballad “Hangin’ Out With The Blues”.  It’s a smooth break-up song that highlights Derrick Dove’s great vocals.  “Georgia Bound” is another rockin’ number about coming back home to Georgia.  Finally, I’m a fan of the slower number “Dig My Grave”.  It’s got a heavy drum beat that the guitars dance around and is a great late album ballad that pairs well with the amazing slow solo work of the mostly instrumental finale, “Everybody’s Feeling Fine”.

I highly recommend this album if you like to love southern rock music, especially the more blues inspired variety.  Derrick Dove & The Peacekeepers present a strong effort here that should not go ignored.  This album is available Friday, February 23rd.  Check out his band website for everything you need to know on the band.
