Bio

Derrick Maxwell is an R&B singer who has performed on shows with such artists as Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, James Brown, D. Train, Ramsey Lewis, Ready for the World, Stanley Turtine, and Bobby Rush. In the 70’s and 80’s, Maxwell performed as the lead singer for groups such as: T.H.E.M., Majestic Arrows and Desoto. During this time, Maxwell also performed in Chicago special events and summer festivals. He was a gold medal winner for the Veteran’s Creative Arts Festival. His political career is also quite impressive campaigning for well known people such as Cook County Commissioner Jerry “Iceman” Butler, the late Mayor Harold Washington (lending a huge helping hand with Washington’s renowned slogan: Nobody but Harold), and Chicago’s very own Mayor Richard M. Daley. Derrick Maxwell’s community participation also includes dedication to Hands Across America, Back to School parade, and After Magazine special affairs. Maxwell comes from a family with an interesting musical background. His mother was a vocalist, and his father played the guitar for artist such as Howling Wolf, Jimmy Reed, & Muddy Waters. His sister, Barbara LeShore, is a well known female blues vocalist and one of the first ladies of blues. An inspiration to Mr. Maxwell indeed! Now Mr. Maxwell is recording his CD while working with Recordplayers Inc.
