Derek Reese (born May 25, 1973) is an American singer-songwriter and musician. He lives in Brooklyn. Reese joined his first band at age 7 called Broken Rules, a hardcore/punk band that played mostly on the lower east side of NYC during the early 1980's. The band was led by lead singer, now film actor Michael Shaner.[1]

At the age of 8 he recorded his first single "Big Boy".[2] Soon after, Reese played at including Limelight, A7, The Palladium and CBGB's. During the early 1990s Reese was in a duo called NO-1-U-NO along with musician Byron Moore, signed to a demo deal under Whitney Houston's Better Place Records located in Elmwood Park New Jersey. They recorded at BKB studios (Bobbi Kristina Brown). Reese was also requested to play guitar at Whitney Houston's 35th birthday party at NYC's China Club.

In 2000, Reese played drums in a band called Stoned Soul[3] on a recording for Universal Records with The Lordz of Brooklyn[4] and the artist Everlast titled Take A Bite Outta Rhyme - A Rock Tribute To Rap.[5]

Reese released his first album February 14, 2011, on Ace Records, an independent label.[6][7][8] He opened for the Last Poets in New Haven Connecticut,[9] and played slide guitar on Selah Sue's song Fade Away.[10] Reese's music has appeared in television shows [11]and movies by virtue of his contractual relationships with Nightingale music and Rumblefish.[12][13]

Two of Reese's songs "Anchor Me" and "Don't you worry bout a thing" from the Harriet Tubman Freedom music festival were nominated for the Sammy awards in 2018.[14][15][16] [17]
