Great artist

I got hooked from the video for "The last word." Derek's a great up-and-coming artist!

Grows on you…then won't let go!

I have to be honest, it took me a while to really get into this music, but once I did I did not want to turn it off. A lot of great music has that effect on people, and Derek has the musical skills to keep you wanting to hear more. The first song I have been playing ... is called “Fold” and it has great beat and awesome lyrics. Take a listen to the other music as well, and you will become a fan as I have.

Bishop released his debut full-length album Resistance is Beautiful in July 2011. Producer Jay Braun, notable for his work with Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, collaborated with Bishop on the twelve tracks. Composed and written by Bishop, the album has hints of Fiona Apple, Ben Folds, and Mika. But like his dichotomic personality, he also swirls in sounds from other eras such as Brill Building, Tin Pan Alley, Beach Boys, and even a bit of old-time Broadway.

Make sure to support this artist…. I promise you will not be disappointed. - Conservative T&T

12 top-notch well-written catchy tunes

i got this CD on a recommendation from a friend, and i'm really glad i did. Considering this is a new artist, I was really impressed with the artistry and depth of the songs. These are the types of songs (and CD) that you expect to find coming from a veteran performer. The writing is smart and the songs are both surprising and original in their arrangements. Overall the album is well-produced and well-performed. Derek Bishop sings with a sincerity and plays with conviction. Each song sounds completely different than the next, yet together they form a terrifically cohesive album. These are tunes that you can tell are inspired the 70s, yet, they are definitely modern. "What is takes" is a dream. And "jackpot" is a weirdly quirky catchy angry showstopper. My favorite though is "pass my by"... it reminds me of a Supertramp-meets-Gladys-Knight number. I highly recommend Derek Bishop's music to anyone.
