"I use magic to create music for solo percussive fingerstyle guitar."
Says Derek, "It's my goal to put as much imagination and what you might call magic into each of my songs as possible. My music has dragons in it, fairies and elves, creatures from the bottom of the sea, from other planets, my music is from a place that I know well yet can only remember faint traces of. " Why imagination, why magic? Because society tends to quarantine imagination and magic to movies, books and stories. I'm here to show you that magic is much more personal. It exists here, with you. More than anything I want to inspire people to find the mystery and the magic that is waiting quietly, patiently, all around us to be discovered once again"
"I want people to connect when they hear my music. Connect to the music, to the far-out parts of themselves, to other people, to the world. That's what good music does, it makes you stop for a minute or two and go 'wait, what's all this about.'
Derek is drawn to the creative and musical potential that percussive fingerstyle guitar holds. He focuses foremost on writing compositions that are music-centered as opposed to overly-technical and meandering. "A black hole has a boundary called an event horizon," says Derek. "Nobody knows what happens past that point. That's what my music is like. It's like being in the event horizon and peering over the edge. That's where I feel all my music comes from: the unknown, the uncharted, the great mystery."
