Country singer/songwriter Derek Andrew began singing as a child in church and school choirs. Inheriting a love of music from his father, Derek picked up his first instrument, an acoustic guitar, at the age 12 and almost immediately began writing his own songs. While Derek's roots are 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 uptempo 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.
