Bio

Derailed is a hard rock band that began taking shape two years ago. Singer and frontman Tim Thompson began writing and demoing songs in his home studio in Reno NV. He later found bassist Clay Brackley, followed by an interim drummer. The band started out as a 3-piece and began playing local shows under the name Soulfire. In August 2004, the guys played a high profile gig at the world-famous Whiskey A Go-Go with CKY.
In January of 2004, Thompson won a local guitar playing contest which resulted in the opportunity to play with rock gods Alter Bridge and Mark Tremonti. This gave the band its first label exposure with Wind-Up Records, which immediately showed interest in the band after receiving an early demo.
As label interest grew, so did the band's direction. The band's name was changed to Derailed, and the group brought in guitar player Christopher Mark to add depth to their songwriting and allow Thompson to focus purely on singing. Along with Mark came a heavier direction for the band, and a better drummer was needed. Local badass Nick Tangen brought a harder hitting sound, and an amazing drive to succeed as a band.
A pulsating and energetic live show is without a doubt Derailed's strength. From the grinding opener "Nowhere To Hide," to the moody single "Falling," to the epic ballad "Something More," to the heavy metal closer "Save Me," the band puts on a constant display of power and emotion, accompanied with musicianship beyond its years. The fans always leave the show knowing they got their money's worth from a band capable of pulling off their arrangements in a live setting. The band also possesses an arsenal of various classic rock covers, which it uses sparingly to energize the crowd.
With a new lineup and outlook, the band continues to work, preparing for shows in Los Angeles at The Hard Rock Cafe, and The Key Club in January of 2006. They also recently completed an LP called "All Or Nothing," which will soon be sent out with a press kit for record labels such as Wind-Up, Jive, and Reprise, all of which are expecting the band's work. With so much in store in the coming year, the young band is confident that they can together change the face of rock n' roll.
