Q: How do I find all of your songs/albums? Missing my favourites here!

A: Most of stuff is on the Reverbnation store, The EP before "Dodgy Drake" is on Itunes. The newest stuff I am doing is on Sound Cloud ( it is the bed tracks before I record the newest Album. Or if all else Fails yopu can go to my website derrickmccandless.com and then go through Paypal (that will be a physical copy sent to you directly. If you go to www.derrickmccandless.com there will be links to everything. And then just let me know what you like from the past and I will send you electronic versions, I will dig up what I can and send. Send song requests to derrmack@gmail.com and I will send each song in an email. Thanks for sending me a message this way , it boosts my ego! Big hugs maybe we come your way for a house concert? Big Hugs Derrick
