DEREK MCNALLY is a Singer/Songwriter hailing from England. Whilst busy working with his band Inhaler, Derek was contacted by world renowned DJ Allure who had heard his songs on MySpace. Allure was looking for a new writer/vocalist for his forthcoming EOL album. Although musically at that time it was a million miles away from what Derek was doing with Inhaler, it seemed like an interesting combination and, he immediately fell in love with the backing track Allure had sent him.
That song, “In the Dark,” resulted in Derek joining Allure on a massive world tour, exposing him to an entirely new demographic of fans as well as other top DJs.
Meeting B.T while on tour in Budapest with Allure led to Derek co – writing “Suddenly” the lead track off of Brian’s Grammy nominated album, as well as the #1 dance track “The Emergency” and “Forget Me” off the same album. As doors continued to open, Derek teamed up with AvB, the #1 ranked DJ in the world, and together they wrote “This Light Between Us”. Their partnership was such a success and the song such a smash for the DJ hitting the #1 spot in multiple countries, that AvB invited Derek on tour with him in 2010 through 2011.
This as well sparked many other collaborations including songs with PvD, Benassi, Richard Durand and Allure … as well as follow up tracks with AvB.
Derek is now busy working in the studio on various projects and collaborations due for release this year, including his Debut Solo Album which has been signed to Armada Records.
