David Gerald grew up to the sounds of the blues and R&B music in his hometown, Detroit. Gerald started playing guitar at the age of 15, influenced by Prince and 80's rock guitarists. He rediscovered the blues and listened to the music of Albert King, ZZ Hill, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name just a few. Today, Gerald and his band perform at clubs and festivals across the nation. Gerald's music has been receiving widespread radio play, along with recognition in the blues and rock communities. His debut album Hell and Back reached #1 on “Roots Music Report's Blues Chart” for Michigan-based artists and remained in the “Top 20” for many weeks in a row.
