Wyly Bigger Updates Delta Blues with New Album "Broken Telephone"

Wyly Bigger, a rising star in Memphis' music scene, has released his debut album "Broken Telephone," which combines jazz, rhythm and blues, soft rock, soul, pop, modern pop, and contemporary soul. Wyly was born in Marion, Arkansas, and grew up on the Mississippi River, immersed in the Delta Blues' rich musical tradition. At the age of four, he began teaching himself piano by ear, following in the footsteps of great blues musicians.

Wyly's musical journey has been influenced by his time in Memphis and Clarksdale, Mississippi, where he learned from blues legends such as Pinetop Perkins and Bob Margolin. At the age of 26, he established himself as a significant personality in Memphis, having performed at renowned locations such as Earnestine and Hazel's, Beale Street, and Cooper-Young. His music, which is heavily influenced by Delta Blues, has earned international acclaim, including appearances in Canada and Norway.

Wyly's talent and passion are on full display in "Broken Telephone," a Madjack Records release recorded at the historic Shelby Foote Mansion in Midtown Memphis. In 2021, the title tune advanced him to the final round of the Memphis Songwriter of the Year competition. Mark Edgar Stuart produced the album, which contains an all-star lineup of Memphis musicians, including Matt Ross-Spang,  Danny Banks, Jim Spake, and Stuart himself. This album portrays the dynamic energy of Memphis' music scene through frenetic call-and-response songs and soulful ballads.

Wyly's work demonstrates his commitment to maintaining the tradition of rock and roll and blues while mixing it with modern soul and pop influences. "Broken Telephone" brings Memphis' soul to life, with Wyly Bigger at the helm of this  musical rebirth. His debut album is a must-listen for anyone interested in  Delta Blues' rich history and growing sound.

Experience the wonder of "Broken Telephone" and accompany Wyly Bigger on his quest to keep the spirit of the past alive in the present. The album is now accessible across all major streaming platforms.
