“Derin Dow is a Los Angeles-based musician, songwriter and guitar player; (on his album he also played bass ), active from late 80's period. During the 90's period, he began contributing to the musical scores of several independent films, and he has also been featured in "RECORDING" magazine on two occasions. Since 2005, Derin and his band have opened shows for artists such as: Asia, Shaw-Blades, Ambrosia, Eric Johnson, etc.. Derin is a strong songwriter and fine vocalist. His interesting sphere is deeply in melodic rock / AOR / classic rock fields, and most of his songs possess a late 70's and early 80's approach. In some aspects his musical legacy reminds one of REO Speedwagon or Foreigner style, but he is convincable enough in his performing attitudes. All of the 13 songs on the "Retroactive" album possess radio friendly usings, and also are pretty attractive for concert playings. Under the mentioned genre's tendencies, "Retroactive" is more than an interesting and acceptable album.”
