Derek Sholl's self-titled album "Derek Sholl" ttention he's been receiving over the last year or so. Indeed, the thirteen songs on "Derek Sholl" will thrill new listeners and be warmly embraced by Derek Sholl's growing legion of fans.

Grammy award winning producer Don Was produced Kristofferson's last CD, and he also took the helm of "Closer To The Bone."
