Derek Bahr is a singer/songwriter/musician who has spent the last decade as a road musician. Though he had been writing songs on the side for years, in 2020 everything shut down and he had no gigs on the books so he took the time to write, record and produce his debut EP, Collecting Dust. His ability to bring in fresh ideas, unique hooks and craft a song led Creative Nation to sign him in 2021. He’s a solid lyricist, serves well as a topliner and given his natural musical abilities, he excels at musical hooks and continues to hone his skills building tracks. His time on the road has helped him build great relationships with artists which will serve him well in the writer room.
