Derek Sharp

Profile:
Canadian singer, songwriter, guitarist. Married to Sass Jordan

Derek Sharp was born in the wilds of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and later moved to the west end of Toronto in the early '70's. From an early age, he had a precocious talent for music and by the age of 10, could play piano and guitar proficiently. During this time he was exposed to the usual suspects, FM radio and cheap concerts by great acts. This, and his love of vintage 20th century jazz, blues, and rock & roll lead him to start his first band which included world-renowned flamenco guitarist, Jesse Cook. He started playing professionally by the age of 15 and never looked back. Becoming a full-fledged multi-instrumentalist as well as a vocalist, he has worked with many notable Canadian acts. The majority of his work revolves around performing live, 6 or 7 days a week, all the while composing and producing his own songs. From 2004-2008, he served as the musical director for the massively successful Canadian Idol tours. He is currently the lead singer and guitarist for The Guess Who and although he now devotes a great portion of his time touring with the band, he continues to write, perform and produce with other artists. He most recently wrote and produced three new tracks for The Guess Who, produced and co-wrote the album "From Dusk Till Dawn" by Sass Jordan. Co-wrote a new track on the upcoming Jake E Lee album and several solo projects slated for release in 2014. His list of credits is vast, but here is a partial list of some of the acts that he has either produced, recorded or toured with: Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow), Sass Jordan, Red Rider, Alannah Myles, Alex Ligertwood (Santana), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Charlie Morgan (Elton John), Brian Tichy (Whitesnake), Brent Fitz (Slash), Barry Dunaway (Yngwie Malmsteen) and Jeff Healey.
