Bio

My name is Derrick Harris and I’m from Birmingham, AL. I’ve loved music since the day that I heard Michael Jackson and knew that God had something cool for me to do with the music I loved. My music reflects what is going on in my life…the real stuff. Life can be hard…and great…and confusing…all at the same time. Maybe you are going through something I’ve gone through or maybe you just like the vibe of a song. Either way, I hope that I can be a positive influence as I grow, learn, fall, and get back up again. The purpose in my music is pretty simple. I want to be a light in a dark world.

A lot of people are hurting and searching for answers. Music provides a great way to answer some of their questions. Or to leave some questions unanswered. We need hope and truth. My lyrics are honest and from my heart. I try to write music for the soul. I like to deal with the tough issues while being an encouragement. I’m committed to working hard and being used as God would see fit. “They can call my bluff, they can call my name… Still, I will be here for You.” These are lyrics from the song I Will Be Here for You on my new project, 3 on the Left. If people like what I do, or if they don’t – I’m still God’s and will keep writing, playing, singing, and praying. Thanks for your time and I hope that you will like what you hear.
