Be ready to shout, sing, and shed a tear. Jared Deck presents his new album, “Bully Pulpit,” full of gospel shouts, country storytelling, and soulful crooning. Order your tickets to this one-time event on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at the historic Blue Door in Oklahoma City. This full band show will feature vocal treasures Chanda Graham and Myra Beasley. Norman blues songwriter, Caleb McGee, will open the evening.
Deck’s eponymous debut album received praise from American Songwriter Magazine and Rolling Stone Country. In 2016, his blue-collar anthem, “The American Dream,” was awarded the winner of the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest.
His new album, “Bully Pulpit,” offers a dichotic soundtrack to Deck’s diverse working background. Hear the songs and the stories that inspired them at this special concert.
For a man who’s been on both sides of the pulpit, outsourced by a corporation, defeated in an election, and fired from church, the album title rings true. Bully Pulpit harmonizes Deck’s country storytelling with his gospel upbringing and blue-collar authenticity. “Through every failure, I never stop believing in the truth of my experiences, the man I hope to be, or my ability to reach any goal I choose. I move forward at all costs, tell my story, and hope it resonates.”
