      Great show from 2 super-talented musicians! They do Paul Simon an honor by performing his music so well. Hope to hear more of this in the future!

      The music and their renditions were great. The talks in between were OK. I guess with practice and some tutoring, they would handle that part better. I may be old fashioned; but, I think they were a little underdressed for this live performance/broadcast. I still enjoyed it a lot!

An old soul in a new age, Derren Raser stands out from the monotonous fray of popular music. Witty & well-spoken, singer-songwriter Raser will move you with his thoughtful lyrics and haunting melodies. His ballads are old-fashioned folk stories and beautiful tributes to love lost and found.

Combining lively folk-rock and classic singer-songwriter traditions with the hard edge of contemporary pop and rock influences, he has honed a cutting edge sound that is immediately both fresh and familiar. His music has been described as "Simon and Garfunkel meets the Shins." It is music that sounds equally at home on an old dusty hi-fi or in a sleek new iPod.

Born and raised in suburban Kansas, Derren has undertaken the Southern California music scene and emerged with his wholesome Midwestern sensibilities intact. He employs a thoughtful, sincere approach to songwriting and performing - his dynamic live performances have been described as "emotive expression that is nearly flawless in its purity" (Jake Sibley--944 Magazine). His guitar work is centered on pristine and intelligent arrangements, each note painstakingly placed to complement the stark clarity of his unmistakable voice. This combination of intention and talent is rarely achieved and is not easily forgotten.

A versatile performer, Derren is at home playing intimate dives and big name venues alike. He is a regular on both the San Diego and Los Angeles music scenes, and is constantly working to bring his unique music to new audiences. People nationwide are taking notice. Derren and his music have recently been featured on NPR's "All Songs Considered," and have appeared in 944 Magazine, Union Tribune, the Troubadour, Olathe Daily News, and numerous online publications. Derren is currently promoting his self-released album, "Home In This Direction," which has been hailed as "awash with talent!" (Andrew Salyer--www.upbeatmusic.com) and "wildly entertaining" (Craig Yerkes--the S.D. Troubadour).

A unique and abundant talent, Derren will continue to share the stage with greats like John Mayer, Hanson, Ben Taylor, Tyrone Wells, Sonya Kitchell, Garrison Starr, Arnold McCuller, Richie Cannata and more. Derren Raser is gaining momentum, and you won't want to miss his rise!
