I've been following Derek Pitts (and the Bullets) for about 6 months now when a friend put me onto his music. I was very intrigued by his sound and excited to finally see him live last night at The Roxy. Derek’s Blues R&B music kept the crowd grooving in their seats and on the dance floor throughout the night. His raspy soulful voice is very intoxicating. You could tell how much Derek loves what he's doing by the enthusiasm and playful excitement (they have) on stage.”

Derek Pitts and the Bullets

With a whiskey rasp and timeless soulful sound, Derek Pitts and the Bullets ignite excitement in the hearts of listeners.  Marrying Motown and Soul with old school R&B, each song carries a warm familiar tone within its roots while curiously maintaining organic originality. However, when it comes to their energetic live performance and the fiery bourbon-soaked vocal style of Derek Pitts, the experience is unparalleled.  The emotions evoked will inspire the desire for all to sing along, embodying the rustic old soul and youthful excitement of "then and now".
