Up and coming Bay Area musician is a very accurate description of Derek King. Although the phrase “Bay Area” can have a very specific theme and brand to it, Derek is anything but limited to that. Born and raised in Antioch, California, he has been surrounded by music his entire life. With a family of vast experiences and interests, Derek knew his passion for music would trump anything else that came on his plate. With sincere recognition coming in from many different valid musicians, these relationships have landed him collaborating with some of Derek’s personal influences, along with leaders of culture. Derek has had the opportunity to collaborate with multiple platinum recording artists such as Sage the Gemini, Eric Bellinger, IAMSU, and multiple others. Also having experienced life on the road touring with all three of the mentioned musicians, Derek is now at the caliber of headlining his own shows. His first solo concert was a sellout success and the listens to his music don’t fall short of this level either. His most recent single “Tetris” amassed over 1,000,000 Soundcloud listens alone just within a single month of being released which catapulted Derek’s career into another degree, receiving significant recognition from top-tier radio stations all over the country and multiple internationally.
