The Derek Anthony - Bio
The (thee) Derek Anthony's music if VIBRANT, introspective, clever, and honest. This Philadelphia native’s tunes are a special mixture of feels, bringing the celebration of broadway and combining it with edgy piano rock, LOVE WRAPPED soul, and flirtatious classical - A delectable sound you can only imagine until it is slammed right in front of your face then caressing you like a warm cashmere sweater.
The D.A. is a statuesque, eclectic POWERHOUSE in music industry. He has passion, form, and mastery in using his ELECTRIC Tenor timbre, vocally separating Derek from the pack!

He's been praised as having "BLOWN OUR MINDS," by Salon.com, and has graced many a stage, from the Berlin and St. Petersburg Philharmonics to show stopping in Philadelphia's Kimmel Center, Union League, World Cafe, Legendary Dobbs, and The Clef Club! Derek's live performance is a ONE-OF-A-KIND experience to enjoy!
