“I feel proud to know Derek as a young multi-talented musician with a voice that rivals Steve Perry, a stage presence that demands attention, and always entertains and delivers his deep love of music to one listener or ten thousand. He will be singing his way into peoples hearts for a long time to come. Whether watching or playing music with "my lil bro", anyone who hears him will feel better for the experience, and could quite possibly be blown away at his high-energy performance. Once you see Derek live, you will want more.”

“You Rock!!! We all want to hear more from you~Really, you are CRAZY GOOD!!”

Angela Hudspeth - (Listener/Facebook fan)

“Derek incorporates precious and effective stage craft techniques into his performance that many long-term seasoned musicians, often overlook. He is naturally engaging and his charming high energy is infectious to the effect of being viral. Performing a "cover" song and respectfully expressing that song's existential essence without mimicking the original is challenging and creatively demanding...this guy rises to... and then exceeds expectations. He takes his vocation to heart... then opens that same heart to his fans. From a business aspect, self motivated & professional, Derek "Hustles"!”

Chris Nowak - (Musician/Performer)

“Derek is supremely talented. And a nice guy to boot!”

Garth Osborn - (Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist)
