Price Range: $250/hour

What to Expect

Songwriter Derek Lee Bishop, of Pendleton Indiana, has been performing music since he was a child. The 30 year old classically trained guitarist and pianist began his musical career playing at coffee shops throughout southwest Missouri. His music can typically be described as confessions put to song, with stirring lyrics and calming melodies which touch on spirituality, hope, forgiveness, fatherhood and love. Bishop's unique finger style approach to guitar playing and hushed, restrained vocals give him a sound all his own, while simultaneously recalling artists such as Iron and Wine & William Fitzsimmons.
Additional Booking Notes
I can bring my own small sound system but I will need a 110 power outlet and extension chords.
A contract will need to be filled out by all parties involved to ensure professionalism in all that we do.
