Biography

Derrick Zuber

Derrick Zuber is an accomplished Canadian musician and songwriter originally from Toronto, now residing in Oshawa, a city approximately 50 km east of Toronto. He has played guitar for such artists as Juno nominee Blaise Pascal, Jason Grills and Marion Drexler in addition to his solo career since 2003.  His influences are diverse, including country, rock, pop and blues. Derrick's eclectic style presents itself in the studio on both his vocals and his use of guitar, bass, mandolin and banjo. His unique style utilizes both traditional and less traditional instrument pairings and progressions.  

 

Derrick’s first album, ‘Like A Song’, features catchy, lyrical vocals that pull in the listener. The songs have a country flare, and tell you a story that is familiar to anyone who has ever been in love, whether they kept it or lost it.  ‘Road Less Travelled’, Derrick's second studio release, picks up where ‘Like A Song’ leaves off; It's catchy, roots-based and adds breadth to Derrick's music that reflects passing time and life experience. Both albums were recorded at Haggarty Sound Studio in Peterborough Ontario and were co-produced by Derrick and veteran engineer Barry Haggarty.

 

His third studio album, ‘Built To Last’ was recorded at The Woodshed Recording Studio located on Danforth Avenue in Toronto, and released on December 18, 2020.  In this album, Derrick’s music reaches yet further heights with assistance from Tim Vesely, best known as a founding member of the Canadian indie rock band ‘The Rheostatics’.

 

Derrick performs regularly around Southern Ontario and can be seen at various festivals, restaurants, bars, resorts, theatres, churches and private functions.
