The Blood Feud Family Singers

And now for a Tiny Desert Concert — that’s when local bands come into the KJZZ studios to play a couple songs for us and talk a bit about the music.

Today we hear The Blood Feud Family Singers. Self-described as up-tempo but down-hearted, the heart and soul of the band is its poetic lyrics that pluck at your emotions, and the bluesy-folk tunes take a walk down the dusty road of love and heartbreak.

Daryl Scherrer is the poet who pens the tragic lyrics and lends his soulful voice to the songs, and his music has been nominated as one of the 10 best love songs ever written by a Phoenix musician (by the Phoenix New Times).

The Show's host Mark Brodie spoke with Scherrer, and they started by talking about whether he’s found that his songwriting process has evolved since he’s been doing it for about two decades.

You can watch The Blood Feud Family Singers' performance in KJZZ's studios below, and check out their band page on Facebook.

If you’re in a band or know of one that you’d like to hear play at the KJZZ studios, send us a note at [email protected].

This performance was filmed at KJZZ's youth media center, SPOT 127.
