Consisting of traditional blues elements infused with a silky-smooth pop sensibility, Overnight Success is the long-awaited follow-up to the band’s critically-acclaimed album, Somethin’s Wrong. Don’t be fooled: Despite the obvious crossover appeal of this album, there is some serious grit in the grooves here. Billy D’s seen-it-all world-weary vocals, combined with all-around ace guitar playing are the main attractions, but solid professionalism abounds throughout the eleven tracks, with supernatural rhythm section support from Joe Casimir on bass and backing vocals and Scott Van Dusen on drums. Tasty and tasteful, these solid tracks go down easy but have a kick. Billy D and The Hoodoos are a true jewel of the Portland music scene.

Somethin's Wrong is a collection of tunes that span the spectrum of blues. Mix one part Rock'n Blues, add some Chicago South Side swagger and sprinkle some tasty Cray-esque licks, and you've got some mighty fine tunes. The songs work together to create an "outside the box Blues Experience". Billy D's thoughtful lyrics combined with a smoking rhythm section make for a great listen
