Derek grew up playing several instruments with his
father and grand father, though he has always loved the deep tones of
progressive rock and electronic music. He got his first guitar when he
was 4 and has been making music ever since. Being influenced by a
Peter Gabriel/Genesis style of progressive music, with classical and
jazz undertones, he wanted to play music that moved in that direction
and that’s when he found house.
Good storytellers are adept at pulling people into their tales with
enthralling character development and captivating plot. Thats what Illegal Lizard
is all about.
