Derk Conlon Singer Song Writer Home Page

Derek ConlonHi, welcome to my web site. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.

This website covers both sides of my career as a performer and as a singer/songwriter.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones being able to do what I love and to love what I do. Music has been with me from an early age and has taken me around the world many times, introducing me to different cultures, allowing me to meet people from all walks of life and inspiring me to write songs I probably would never have even dreamed of writing.

I have been working as a guest entertainer on the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria for the past year. Traveling has been a great source of inspiration. It can be a lonely existence, which is exactly what I needed to enable me to write my music.

At times it is like having two separate jobs. One as a cover song performer and the other as a songwriter.

Before setting off to sea I had been working with Leeann Rimes songwriter Ron Grimes in Dallas Texas and also with saxophonist Raphael Ravenscroft of Baker Street fame. Raf played sax on my song "A sad and lonely man" which later went on to become runner up in the UK songwriters contest 2007

I was also fortunate to hook up with grammy nominee producer Tim Gordine who gave my music his personal touch.

As a cover act, I have played at many venues throughout the world in front of Royalty, Hollywood A-listers and top musical acts including Tom Jones, Oasis and Elton John. I was the resident act at Windows Of The World in London's Park Lane as well as resident entertainer at the Uptown Bar Jumeriah Beach Hotel Dubai and the Mansion on Turtle Creek Dallas. I have pounded the keys at the Piano bars of Europe and have been invited to play at many fundraisers including The Lord's Taverner and the Terrence Higgins Trust in London.
