Derek Book

I have been through many musical phases, so I won't pick a style here, except to say I have no interest in new country. I have played in several local bands, including Axion Ocean, Weak Patrol, but the largest was the Wassabi Collective, a project where I built a homade marimba and toured large festivals for 3 years in an experimental high energy in-your-face tribal fusion band. I am all about passion, and my soul is old. I am a fabulous songwriter, pretty much everything I wrote for the bands I worked in was the preferred material by the crowds, and my voice is VERY powerful. If I had to compare my essence with with another musician, it would be Marcus Mumford, from Mumford and sons. Not because I play celtic(though I have at times), but because he and I have the same rawness and honesty. I take the world very seriously, but I am also silly and fun man.
