More About Country Music Sensation Derek Anthony

In addition to vocals, growing up, Derek played trumpet, banjo, guitar, saxophone, harmonica, baritone, and piano, giving him a wide range of styles and patterns to pull from while writing, performing, and composing. Most fans feel his style is a cross between Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, but Derek prefers to think of himself as a unique performer with his own sound and style. Derek Anthony is eager to broaden his musical career into the mass market appeal and his song “Cowboy Way” is helping him do just that!
