Biography

Bio:
Review (Knocks from the Underground NY 2009)By: Rei Thompson "Derek Bentivegna is an artist whose vocals press hard against the guitar riffs that he so effortlessly performs. As terse drum beats ride along the backs of meticulously strokes of guitar riffs, he sets himself apart as an artist whose mastery of the instrument actually feels impressionable to the listener. Unlike many a guitar player who pretends to strum and sing some common arrangements, this artist’s voice carries a peculiar twang, a guttural sound expressing an earnest longing that appears to be untouchable." He has been a headliner at The Downs Music Festival, Sundance Film Festival 05'(Bistro 412), Sundance House 06' , The Hard Rock Cafe ,WSU's Myspace Artist Showcase 2008, "The Best of the Buskers" in Time Square NY 2009, SXSW 2012,PBS "Adventure Utah" as well as many Nightclubs, Bars and Festivals around the US. Derek has been performing live for the past 13 years and plans on a 2013 tour and release of a new live CD.
