Edgar Derby is an independent act based in Denton, Texas. His music stems from introspection and exploration in the vein of Hank Williams, Sr., Woodie Guthrie, Lou Barlow, and Shakey Graves. Edgar Derby was born and raised in Texas, and has been making music for over two decades. His acoustic guitars carry a Southern familiarity that is carefully embellished with a unique character and sensibility, and the keen listener will pick up on subtle themes throughout his first collection of songs entitled Who We Are. More than just an album of folk music, Who We Are is intended as a cohesive collection, with each song borrowing and building themes from the rest. Edgar Derby is gaining a foothold in the DFW metroplex and hopes to record Who We Are soon.
