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 and the music of Mr Marcus Miller, who Derryck considers to be " the premier song writing team of all times. " Although this show has been touring over the last four year's, it seem that due to the tragedy Mr Vandross has suffered, this year's tour should be of the highest regards.

Derryck's first opportunity to front, an R&B group was The Triphonic Show Band in the late 70's. It was while he was with The Triphonic Show Band that he was seen performing by Pebbles at The Jack the Rapper Convention, this led Derryck in the position of being chosen to become one of her backup vocalist while she toured in the 80's. During his days of touring with pebbles, Derryck Lawrence recorded his first demo that was presented to Jesse Saunders, who at the time was 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 Mr Luther Vandross.

Derryck Lawrence 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."
