Darrell Nulisch

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Darrell Nulisch (born September 14, 1952 , Dallas , Texas ) is an American blues singer and harmonica player .


He grew up with soul singers like Otis Redding and Al Green , who inspired him to follow a similar path and work on his voice. His parents took him to bars when they played live music on Saturdays. Jimmy McCracklin and Freddie King were also favorites of his youth. In the 1980s he was a founding member of Anson Funderburgh's Rockets and also sang for a year with Mike Morgan & The Crawl and Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters, with whom he also recorded two albums.

He began his solo career in 1991, moving to Boston and releasing albums that showed off his incredible harmonica skills and passionate voice. Nulisch also became a singer in James Cotton's touring band, as Cotton could no longer sing after an operation.

In 2001, I Like It That Way was nominated for the Blues Music Award for best soul blues album . In 2010 he received a nomination for the Blues Music Award for best male soulblues singer and the album Just for You was placed in the category Best Soulblues Album.
