Derrick Schneider / Bio

I always loved singing and playing the guitar since I was a little child. I really started taking music seriously since I was 13. I took guitar lessons at School of Rock and ended up starting a band called Rapidxfire around the age of 14. We played a ton of shows all over NJ and NYC. As we started to grow as a band we ended playing Bamboozle festival, Starland Ballroom, The Stone Pony opening for Ripper Owens(Dio Disciples), CrocRock, Ripper Owens Tap House, Florida Music Festival, and many more. RapidxFire had an EP out which two songs over the past two years was asked to play on HBO's "Dexter" and over the summer of 2014 HBO's "True Blood"! RapidxFire as a band doesn't play anymore.. In 2013 Derrick was the singer for Dark Empire before the band broke up. He went on a mini tour with them back in the summer of 2013. Right now Derrick is in middle of writing his first album with his band Progressive metal band Flathead Sky. Derrick also a well trained vocalist and musician! He has over 4 octaves and is known for his powerful highnotes. Very influenced by singers such as Rob Halford, Freddy Mercury, Adam Lambert, Vincent Cavanagh, James Labrie, ect…..
