Demetria Taylor
Doin’ What I’m Supposed To Do
Delmark DE 875
Compact Disc

Demetria Taylor is proud to be the recipient of the KoKo Taylor “Queen of the Blues” Award (2022) given by the Jus’ Blues Foundation.
Demetria was born to sing the blues. The songs on this album are a balance of traditional blues and modern R & B, with some written by her family, some by fellow musicians Mike Wheeler and Larry Williams, one by the venerable Magic Sam, and two by Demetria herself. This second Delmark record is a strong follow up to her Delmark debut, “Bad Girl”, and also features the legendary Deitra Farr on one track. As Demetria says, and we believe her: “IT’S MY TIME.”

Demetria Taylor, vocals
Mike Wheeler, guitar
Billy Flynn, guitar on 1, 4
Carlos Showers, guitar (all, except 1 and 4)
Larry Williams, bass
Brian James, keyboards
Melvin Carlisle “Pookie Styx”, drums
