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.
Since then, it’s been "anywhere and everywhere" for the songwriter, playing at all types of venues, as a solo artist or with his band, headlining large concerts and festivals or playing small venues.
Derrick's music has been nominated for several awards, but the most satisfying thing that happens for him in his ministry is when a life is changed by the message of the gospel.
An inspirational performer, and genuine worship leader.
