Hi, I’m Derek. I currently play bass in Gwen Stefani’s band, and have also toured with artists such as Shania Twain, Air Supply, Shakira, Daniel Powter, Mindi Abair & the Boneshakers, Victoria Justice, Dancing With The Stars, among many others. I moved to LA in 1997, and have since made my living as a full-time studio and touring bass player, enjoying a career based on versatility, professionalism, positivity, and integrity. I’m eager to share some of my experiences with you, and look forward to helping you navigate your way through the constantly-changing landscape of today’s music world.
