Derek Post is a guitar player and singer/songwriter thoroughly saturated in R&B,rock and blues influences. His soulful, talent-infused guitar ability,unique vocal quality,and refreshing,modern approach to the style are what Derek brings to the stage.
Born in Shreveport,Louisiana & raised in Okoboji,Iowa,Derek grew up in a close family where music was always present.
Establishing himself regionally & poised to tour, a moment of opportunity came when Derek and Mato Nanji of blues-rock band Indigenous & The Experience Hendrix Tour, played a show together. In that crossing of paths, Mato heard and saw the potential and took an interest in Derek’s developing career. Derek and Mato worked together to produce Derek’s EP, Ebb and the Flow, which showcases the diversity of Derek’s talent, not only in his guitar playing, but also his honey-and-sand textured vocals, and of his intuitive songwriting as well. The E.P features 3 time Grammy winning Brian Setzer drummer, Noah Levy & Grammy winning Jonny Lang bass player, Jim Anton. During a recording session, Mato invited Derek to join Indigenous in 2009.
After touring 6 years with Mato, Derek has turned his attention back to his own career, currently recording new material for his next album as he continues to perform live, he is coming into his own and blossoming as a artist. Passion, energy and soul are what this budding guitarist singer/songwriter brings to his live performances.
