ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Female Vocalist of the Year, 2005 - Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI).

Simply put, Deirdre Fellner Wails! An award winning vocalist and talented musician, Deirdre masterfully interprets the great Soul, Jazz and Blues legends with the artistry and flexibility granted by a lifetime of musical study and performing. Deirdre is a musician's singer, continuing to emulate the masters while passionately presenting a style of her own.

"Deirdre's vocals inspire - they either make your spine tingle or make the hair on the back of your neck stand up." Fred Perry, Manager, Grand Aleutian Hotel, Alaska

Whether performing in small or large venues, Deirdre has the musical and performance ability to gauge the crowd and instantly tailor her performance to the mood of the room. Her rapport with the audience never fails to create an atmosphere of excitement and entertainment.

"Fellner, with her rich, bluesy voice that runs the gamut of emotion, is always a big draw. She effectively conveys the very heart and soul of a song, and the crowd invevitably loses itself." Sarah Burridge, Alaska Newspapers, Inc.

Deirdre grew up in Door County, Wisconsin and has been writing and performing since her teens. Her music is a riveting blend of Soul, Jazz, Blues, Funk & Gospel with insightful lyrics and mature musical themes. Deirdre released "Fixin' to Wail," her debut CD of original material, in 1999 to rave reviews and exceptional sales, and in 2002 licensed "Fixin' to Wail" to Italy's Comet Records for global release under the Horizon label.

"A true first lady of soul, blues in a high style."
Comet Records, LaSpezia, Italy

Deirdre Fellner is backed by her band, The Whole of Soul, which is comprised of the Midwest's finest instrumentalists including: Pianist Scott Currier, Guitarist Steve Peplin, Bass Guitarist Eric Hervey, and Drummer Del Bennett. Together they deliver a powerful performance they deem the Lexicon of American Soul: Original and reinvented Soul with Jazz, Funk, Blues and Gospel overtones. Their groove oriented, polished delivery is a sassy, swanky presentation best described as "Wailin'."

"It takes great songwriting, superb song arrangements, excellent performances and fantastic production to make a great recording. SOUL has all of that with a whole lot of soul on top, bottom and everywhere in between. I love this recording."
Connie Grauer of Mrs. Fun, Daemon Records Recording Artist

Deirdre Fellner and The Whole of Soul currently reside in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and are pursuing a regional and national presence while performing in support of their new release, SOUL. They have been featured in a number of prestigious concert festivals in addition to concert dates and guest spots on radio and television throughout Wisconsin and the USA. Audiences and critics agree, Deirdre Fellner is Fixin' to Wail.

"Fellner belts out blues in a wail that comes from the Koko Taylor school, and pens blues tunes that eschew that paint-by-numbers format favored by too many Midwest bar bands." Dave Luhrssen, Shepherd Express-Metro, Milwaukee, WI
