I first met Derek over 10 years ago in a recording studio helping us out greatly with an album we (Audiokiss) were doing. He composed an orchestral piece for 1 track and during 2021 this orchestral piece was picked up by a local school who wanted to play it but needed the written score. Derek didn’t hesitate even the slightest to help out as much as he could to put together everything the school needed. What made Derek quite unique was that alongside his undisputed great talent as a musician was a person who was also so warm, accommodating, generous and amicable. Reading the other beautiful words recently written by his many friends and associates I know I am not alone in this view. Derek was a truly lovely guy. The world needs more people like Derek.
