Singer and songwriter Derek Raven never planned to play an instrument. The self taught pianist and guitarist has appeared in many musical theatre productions including A Chorus Line, Grease, and Hair. The singer, actor and Texas native moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music and acting endeavors, eventually landing a Co-Starring role on the internationally syndicated television series "High Tide". Inspired by the finger picking guitar work of Merle Travis and Chet Atkins and the harmony singing The Bee Gees, Derek set out to hone his songwriting and producing skills. Derek's compositions draw on many styles of music and bridge with styles of Rock, Pop, Disco and Rumba Catalana, a pop-oriented version of traditional flamenco music popularized by the Gipsy Kings. Derek is currently experimenting with new recording techniques and styles and spends his time playing in his home studio, "El Laboratorio del Cuervo" (The Laboratory of the Raven).
