Florida-based country artist Derek Lersch’s passion for music and drive to succeed took him from performing Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” at age three for family to now having performed over 350 shows in just four years. Opening for acts like Rodney Atkins, Jay Allen, and others as well as performing at Raymond James Stadium and Amalie Arena, Derek thrives on the big stage. Derek’s favorite thing is performing live. “There’s nothing better than a crowd’s energy and emotions. It’s truly what drives me.” His recent singles “My Baby’s Summertime” & “Over” give you a taste of his forthcoming debut EP this fall.
