• Hot Sounds In The City


We have the musical artist Derek Skelton here who shares on getting through barriers, who he turns to, to get through them and wanting his music to move millions!

Can you tell us the growth you've noticed within yourself that translated to your music recently?

I'd say that I've definitely seen growth with my songwriting and creativity. I spend a lot more time trying to develop those skills as a songwriter by doing it frequently and I feel like I'm continuously getting better. I think that translates to my music every time I release something new.

When was the time you came across a barrier that you were able to knock down? How did you do it?

Honestly, I'm always coming across barriers when it comes to my music. It could be trying to overcome writer's block, frustration with a recording session, or just trying to balance a life in the military and music. I always find a way though to knock down any barriers and it's not always because of my own determination but from the support of people I rely on.

Who is the person that will tell you what you need to hear when you need to hear it when it comes to your career?

Anything that involves music, my Dad is the go-to. He's had the same dream as me all his life and has a deep love of music and singing. So, if I ever need real advice or feedback on something, he's the first one I call.

What does the pinnacle mean to you when it comes to reaching your dreams?

Being given a chance, regardless of all the odds stacked against me, to reach millions of people with my voice and know that it's affecting those people positively. Music is such a powerful force and having the world experience mine would be the pinnacle.

Tell us how we can listen to your music and follow you on social media?

All my music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major streaming platforms! You can also find me on Instagram and TikTok with the handle @derek_skelton and Twitter with @DerekSkelton7.
