Blackberry Wednesday


The Memphis soundtrack plays out in different dimensions of rock, country, bluegrass, jazz, soul and hip hop, mirroring the town’s diverse population. Blackberry Wednesday’s (the name refers to the wine, not the smart phone) founding member and lead vocalist Rodney Ryan Henson fondly recalls how his father’s musical influences were passed down naturally.

The Memphis soundtrack plays out in different dimensions of rock, country, bluegrass, jazz, soul and hip hop, mirroring the town’s diverse population. Blackberry Wednesday’s (the name refers to the wine, not the smart phone) founding member and lead vocalist Rodney Ryan Henson fondly recalls how his father’s musical influences were passed down naturally. The elder Henson, also a singer-songwriter, appreciated a wide array of artists, and the family had a deep appreciation for soulful Memphis natives like The Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, Sam & Dave and Aretha Franklin. “There really is so much history, and I just try to take from all of it,” explains Rod, who also plays piano and keyboard for the band. Lead guitarist and backup singer Sir Lucien Croy writes a lot of the band’s material, and explains that all members have input in the final songs. The men of Blackberry Wednesday bring together talent on many levels.

Percussionist David Wade. Bassist Daniel Dwight stays involved in the intense songwriting process. Their newest member, guitarist Chris “Batman” Leerskov, writes and plays music without the ability to read it. Blackberry Wednesday’s cross-genre style unites strong global influences from all the players, creating a club-savvy, edgy American rock flavor that still maintains a radio-friendly vibe. It sounds like a mouthful, but how else can you mash up the spirit of AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Jerry Lee Lewis, Otis Redding, Tommy Lee and Rusty Cooper without being strange in the most pleasant, familiar way possible? Nobody’s afraid to pull influences from the wildest spots.

With videos for the singles “Hey I” and “Save Us From Ourselves Remix” on the way, and airplay on a smattering of commercial radio stations, Blackberry Wednesday is prepared for their journey to the top.
