Selda and Derek


Selda and Derek on SoundBetter

Published and produced songwriters for pop, country, theatre...and everything in between! We love storytelling and finding ways to make every song shine.


We are a NYC based songwriting team writing in all genres. We wrote the original scores to the musical short film GRIND and upcoming feature AMERICAN REJECT. Our songs have been sung by Keala Settle, Billy Ray Cyrus, Juvenile, Rebecca Black, Michael Cerveris and Anthony Rapp (among others). We've co-written with Broadway and Pop stars Eric Krop and Lilli Cooper and continue to write with several up-and-coming artists.

Our songs have been selected for opportunities by the Nashville Songwriters Association, ASCAP, the Great American Song Competition and the MAC awards.

We love collaborating and finding new stories to tell. We're looking forward to new collaborations here on Sound Better--hit us up with any questions!
