“Born to Raise Hell and Sing the Blues” by Derek Lee Goodreid

A rocking new tune from one of Perth, Australia’s most exciting upcoming artists, this new single will make your hair stand up and leave you wanting more.


Dark and mysterious with an amazing groove, “Born to Raise Hell and Sing the Blues” pulls you in from the start with its brooding atmosphere and sultry vocals. An incredible performance from both Hector Ruano (Harmonica) and Stephen K Donnelly (Bass) is only passed by Goodreid’s own tremendous vocals. The lyrics drag a guttural reaction from the listener, a primal grittiness that only the blues can enact.

Mixed and mastered at Howling Light Recordings (Perth, Western Australia) the production is stellar, just raw and sleek enough to keep the blues dirty and the listening modern. The track gets yoy tapping your foot along to its beat effortlessly and with lyrics of God, the Devil and good old-fashioned death, it’s as blues rock as they come.

While he pays respects to those who came before (and the influences from old blues legends are clear) this is a Derek Lee Goodried track wholly. Drenched in laid back charisma and coolness, “Born to Raise Hell and Sing the Blues” charms you from the opening lick to the final chords.

With a stunning and eclectic discography already under his belt, there’s no better time to get into Derek Lee Goodried. Great production, a tight band and mature songwriting throughout – what’s not to like? Stream “Born to Raise Hell & Sing the Blues” today!
