Derral Gleason is an American musician and singer/songwriter. Gleason’s music is a mix of high-energy from-the-gut "melody with muscle" rock ’n’ roll, and soul-kissed Texas rhythm and blues. His songs are often stories; sometimes they have a moral, and sometimes they don't! There may be one or two that are amoral…
A native Texan, Derral Gleason has been an electric performer in successive musical incarnations: Derral's diversity is illustrated by a musical history which has seen his bands touring nationally and internationally with the Police, INXS, Iggy Pop, and the Divinyls... to solo-acoustic openings with Jerry Jeff Walker, Reverend Horton Heat and Paul Kelly. Beginning his career with the exciting new wave band, Billy Clone and the Same in Phoenix, AZ, Derral went on to lead the edgy Blitz Girls in Boulder, Colorado, touring the U.S., Australia and New Zealand. Derral then founded the Illustrious Illustrated Men, also out of Colorado, before moving back to Austin, Texas, where his music has found its most recent and long-standing incarnation as the DG3 (Derral Gleason Trio)
Performing solo acoustic, or acoustic duo with Jason (Ely) Nunnenkamp, Derral brings a personal, riveting performance to smaller, more intimate venues. With the addition of their drummer (Hence, DG3) and/or additional musical friends, the sound becomes a full on rock experience.
