Biography

BORN in Indianapolis Indiana, birth name, Derryck Lawrence Weeden. Derryck grew up singing gospel with the Weeden Family Singers and toured the east coast at the early age of eight.

Derryck is a soulful vocalist who over the years has been refining and mastering his musical craft, which allows him to reach every conceivable audience. He has been performing his “If Only for One Night” show, which is a tribute to Luther Vandross, who Derryck considers to be “the premier male vocalist of all time.” Although this show has been touring over the last four years, it seems that due to the tragedy Luther has suffered, this year’s tour should be of the highest regards.

Derryck’s first opportunity to front, an R&B group was with The Triphonic Show in the late 70’s. It was while he was with the Triphonic Show that he was seen performing by Pebbles at the Jack the Rapper Convention, this led Derryck into the position of being chosen to become one of her backup singers while she toured in the 80’s. It was while touring with Pebbles that he recorded his first demo album that was presented to Jesse Saunders, Vice President at Uni-Label, and then owned by MCA Records. Jesse was so impressed with Derryck that he compared his voice to that of the very talented Luther Vandross.

Derryck has worked with several talented musicians and producers over the years and one of the greatest compliments came from long time friend and producer Tony Gonzales. Tony made the comment that “working with Derryck Lawrence is like having the silky smooth vocals of Luther Vandross, the spirituality of Bob Marley and the soulful sounds of Eryka Badu all in one!” Derryck has an indescribable talent, which cannot be explained in words, you simply must hear his voice to know the extent of his creativity and ability to mesmerize an audience.
