Release Notes

Determined to make something of his music career, five years ago Derrin Nauendorf arrived at Heathrow airport from Australia with a guitar, £ 1200 and several extra layers of clothig. From this, Derrin spent those next five years playing anywhere that would have him, sleeping on floors and living on tuna baguettes. Things looked up a few years ago when he purchased an old Post Office van, which then became his home for the next six months. More importantly, it allowed him to get gigs, and essentially his music, out into the real depths of the UK. They've looked up and haven't looked back yet.

Literally over 1000 gigs later, Derrin finds himself with fans not only in England, but Scotland, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and his native Australia too. He has since managed to sell over 12,000 albums from the back of that van, and become a bit of a hit on the festival circuit too. He's supported Van Morrison and played to dignitaries and politicians in grand Parisian castles right down to small, intimateee basements in Germany - all without the help of a record label, manager, agent or press officer........until now.

Derrin is now signed to Ruf Records and is about to release his second album, Skin Of The Earth. Following huge critical acclaim for his debut The Rattling Wheel, (whose lyrics were complimented by Cambridge University) Skin Of The Earth looks set to be even bigger. Derrin's songwriting skills have taken him up several levels, his voice has more depth and soul than ever before, and his repertoire has expanded to encompass ballads, mid tempo songs and upbeat tracks.
