Album of the Month: Derrick "Doc" Pearson shines on "A Family Man"

Derrick “Doc” Pearson is a musical triple-threat: As a producer, songwriter and musician, he has made a name for himself beyond his home DC area. His touch can be found on music by The O’Jays, The Whispers and The Dells, and he has served as a bass guitarist with countless others.

After a 1990 spiritual conversion, Doc focused his talents on Gospel music, and he has released three Billboard top 10 albums in the past decade alone.

After a 1990 spiritual conversion, Doc focused his talents on Gospel music, and he has released three Billboard top 10 albums in the past decade alone.

Now, Doc has created a new album that is aimed at his fellow travelers looking for something different for his new release, A Family ManInstrumental music to inspire, motivate and relax a family man. He tells us, “As a young aspiring musician, music was my life. I lived and breathed all kinds of music. After the Lord saved me, my preference in music shifted towards only gospel music and as before, I lived and breathed nothing but gospel music for some time. However, as a married family man working long hours, trying to raise my daughters, maintaining the upkeep of the home, spending time with my wife and more, my musical taste began to again change. There were times when I just wanted to hear some good instrumental music.

One day, while listening to some of the instrumental music I had composed, the Spirit of The Lord spoke to my heart that there were many other family men that were just like me, who also wanted to hear some instrumental music to inspire, motivate and relax them. With this revelation in mind, I set out to record a project for other men like me. To my brothers, I pray you will enjoy A Family Man.”

A Family Man is an ambitious, simply beautiful album that covers a fair bit of ground musically, but should fit right in in the collections of SoulTrackers.

We’re proud to present A Family Man as our Album of the Month for June. Check it out below, and welcome Doc Pearson back to SoulTracks.
