Derek Cate is a singer/songwriter from Corvallis, Oregon.
He picked up the guitar at the age of 20. Although singing for fun along with the radio at a younger age he never considered himself to be a “Singer”. His passion was basketball, it was his life.
Until he picked up a guitar it all changed.
Derek’s style of music is all over the map. Creating songs from country to hip hop and everything in between. Putting his personal experience to music with a passion not seen as much today. Derek captures the listener hanging on every word with a soulful unique voice and an ability to rap that sets him apart from everyone else.
Late 2007 he joined YouTube. Posting acoustic covers of some of his favourite songs, his audience started expanding from the US to overseas. With over 24 Million video views to date, his fan base continues to grow along with his music.
Derek has two daughters Hailey (11) and Zoey (4)
