Derrick's music has been described as "once you hear it, you won’t forget it, a classic rock & soul mixture”. With the ability to perform and write music from many instruments and influences, Derrick pays homage to the past, but also stays current and progressive. The main influence for his music is life, his faith, and of course, "music itself".
He began performing live at the age of twelve, and played his first arena show on his fifteenth birthday. Since then, it’s been "anywhere and everywhere" for the songwriter, playing at small venues, charity events, churches, and headlining large concerts and festivals.
Derrick has played all across Canada and parts of the United States. “There’s nothing like a live performance” he says; "each concert, show, or service all take on a life of their own. Each time I get to go somewhere different, and then let the music take the people, somewhere they’ve never been before. It’s just amazing"
Over the years he has had the privilege to play with some great musicians and credits his success to those who have inspired him to becoming the artist he is today.
An inspirational performer, and genuine worship leader.
