Hey! My name is Derion. I am a Songwriter/Recording Artist. Very experienced with writing lyrics and creating catchy vocal melodies for R&B/Pop songs.
I started writing music when I was 10 years old and have been writing music ever since. I can create catchy, thoughtful melodies accompanied with meaningful lyrics. I offer Top Line work if all you require is vocal melody (No lyrics). I also offer vocalist services if you need a trained male vocalist.
If you're interested shoot me a message and let create some amazing music!
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to the providers audio samples! The songs I put in my reel are songs that showcase my thought and creation process.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Music is my career path. I am a recording artist currently working on my debut EP. I've been making music since I was 10. So for 12 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my own personal style as R&B with Pop, Neo-Soul, and Hip-Hop influences.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Beyonce. Because I think she is brilliant when it comes to music in general.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring creativity, soul, and structure. I like to listen to the instruments in a song to see how I can use every element to help tell the story.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When creating vocal melodies I usually go into the booth, press record, and just sing. Then I play it back and take out parts that I don't like. Rinse and repeat. When it comes to lyrics. After I've gotten the vocal melody or at least enough to start writing I turn the music off and write. Then I arrange the lyrics with the vocal melody.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am very inspired by artist like Beyonce, Frank Ocean, Michael Jackson, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown
