With his Southern roots and urban sensibilities, Derrick procell naturally blends the elements that make up Country music today. He cut his musical teeth at an early age, fronting a variety of bands from high school on.
Derrick led the midwestern favorites, ARROYO, to new musical and critical heights, culminating with a WAMI for best album and production.
Derrick has won numerous songwriting awards and has successfully placed songs with nationally known acts, including The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Melissa Manchester, and Logan Daniels.
