American Blues Box was formed in 2006 by front-man,
.. song writer Derek Davis and drummer James Pacheco. Derek and James
are original members of former Arista Recording artists.
Originating in the San Francisco Bay Area, ..American Blues Box..
combines hard rock and screaming blues much in the same style as early
Aerosmith. With soulful vocals, colorful story telling, wailing bottle
neck slide-guitar and blistering harmonica, the band has made an
extremely impressive debut..... On their new self titled 12 song CD
produced by Derek Davis, American Blues Box displays their talent on the
super charged slide-guitar rockers "Mississippi Mud" and "Whiskey and
Water". They deliver the emotional goods on "Killing Time" and "When You
Were Young", and bring home a burning rendition of the classic "Some
kind of Wonderful". This first offering by ..American Blues Box.. proves
the band has what it takes for a large and diverse audience..... ..
Derek .. ..myspace.com/ddavismusic.. and ..James'..
..myspace.com/jameypacheco.. early success began when their previous
band ..Babylon A.D... signed to Arista Records in 1989. Discovered by
legendary music mogul ..Clive Davis.., ..Babylon A.D... recorded two
critically acclaimed CDs; self titled Babylon A.D. produced by Simon
Hanhart (Waysted, Killer Dwarfs, Yngwie Malmsteen) and Nothing Sacred,
produced by Tom Werman (Motley Crue, Cheap Trick, Ted Nugget, LA Guns)
scored three number one songs at Metal radio and reached gold on their
first release. Constant touring throughout the 1990s and several MTV
videos made them one of hard rock fans favorites. The band released two
more CDs on ..Apocalypse Records..: "..Live In Your Face.." in 1999 and
"..American Blitzkrieg.." in 2002, both well received by their fans.....
Since their inception two years ago ..American Blues Box.. has spent
their time performing live, writing and recording. The new CD is a
powerful testament to their creativity and originality and is certain to
generate a lot of attention!.... The new CD is available at music
