Derek Vickers was born in Morris, IL. on March 13, 1985 to parents married out of highschool. Growing up wasn't always easy or kind and music is all he had to escape. From the age of around 10, he started to listen to music. His first major influence was Madonna. Her music was so different to him, and its where he caught the music bug from. Soon after discovering a passion for music, he joined both band and choir in grade school. Through band, he learned the technical side of music, and through chorus, he found his calling. SINGING. He sang in choir all through high school and was also in the high school musical productions. After graduating from school, he kind of lost the music bug. High school was over and there was no choir to sing in and he didn't know what else to do with his passion, until one day in a Target store he noticed a music making program, and bought it on the spot. Its hard to describe his style. Its a mix of a lot of different sounds, and styles. It is mostly pop music, but one song might have a hot hip hop beat, with some orchestra, and another may have acoustic drums and guitar, but with a techno feel. But needless to say, he has his own unique sound. He writes, composes, and produce all of his songs. They come from the heart, whether a personal experience, or someone close to him. Every song has a different feel, but one thing's for sure….you'll never get bored of Derek Vickers.
