The international blues mover and shaker, known as Son of Dave aka Benjamin Darvill is back in Canada with a new single, “Someday Soon” from his much-anticipated album, Call Me King.
After 24 years of living and making music in London and relentless global touring, this one-man harmonica and beatbox party is back home again in his native Winnipeg and ready to blast out his unique brand of less-is-much-more, funky and inventive rhythmic blues. That blues thump bump and wiggle are back in his stride on his 10th album of classic Son Of Dave harmonica beatbox bluesman vibes. The ten, self-written tracks on Call Me King are a tasty, groove-laden buffet of meaty rhythms punctuated by Son of Dave’s stellar harp riffs and melodies.
A sense of wry humour and sly winks come out in his lyrics and song titles like “I’m Going Monkey For Your Love”, “Waste Time With Me” and “Wild Wild You”, along with some pointed shade thrown at the ethics of modern media in “F the Daily Mail”. Son of Dave’s upcoming album is definitely gonna “Kick Your Butt”, the track title even says so.
“Someday Soon” is the fourth single release in advance of Call Me King and only Son of Dave would make a powerful, groovy single with just Chicago blues harmonica and a conga drum. That’s all that’s needed to get the point across that he’s home alone and more than ready to break away and get out on the town.
“It’s about going out and getting together again, a universal theme for all who’ve felt isolated over the last years,” says Son of Dave.
