Derek Bishop is a new singer/songwriter that has blooped onto my radar of late. Reminding of the absolutely fantastic Keyth Lawrence and the Purple Circle, Derek weaves a lot of keyboard and piano work through insanely catchy pop/rock tracks with big choruses that while they are immediate, have a lot of depth underneath. What I like most about the songs are that they never sit still – the instrumentation swaps, chops and changes from verse to chorus to bridge to interlude and back again. It keeps everything fresh and interesting from the first to the last note.
We hope to featuring more of Derek later on but for now here’s his debut single “The Last Word”.
