Derek grew up just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and began singing as a child. Inheriting a love of music from his father, by age 12 Derek picked up his first acoustic guitar and almost immediately began writing his own songs. Although Derek’s roots are anchored deep in traditional country music, he grew up with alternative rock dominating the airwaves. Now with his rock-influenced country style, Derek Andrew hits close to home with his solid relatable lyrics and his up-tempo alternative edge. His years working as a Paramedic have given him a "no quit" work ethic and a unique perspective on life from which he draws songwriting inspiration.
