WHO IS DERIK?  You may know me as the guitar player on TV's "Glee," or maybe you've seen me on YouTube or met me and my siblings at one of our concerts (I work closely with my brother and sister making music, touring the country, and raising money for arts programs in schools).  I love making YouTube videos to share my original songs and creative interpretations of popular hits with the world.  I want to continue doing so, which is why I'm asking for your help here on Patreon.

SO, WHAT IS PATREON?  This site is a way YOU can directly support artists and creators you care about.  Set a pledge amount you'd like to contribute per video (my goal is to release one or maybe even two new videos per month).  You'll only be charged when I release the new video, and you can set a monthly maximum on your pledge amount so you never exceed your budget (in case we're extra productive with new videos!), and you can cancel at anytime.  In exchange, there are really cool rewards for you!

I'M ALREADY A FAN. WHY BECOME A "PATRON"? Your patronage will directly help my family.  I write the music and do all the recording, my sister Riana is our manager and visual artist, and my brother Dalten is a one-man film crew who films and edits all of our videos.  The three of us cover the costs of equipment, touring, location shoots, hiring crew & band members, and working together as a family to reach and inspire more people around the world with our music.

THE FUTURE: I believe in our family, and I believe in you.  My siblings and I are passionate about succeeding creatively as a team.  There is no obligation to support us-- we will continue to make music, work together, give back, and strive for the next step no matter what.  Check out the rewards you'll receive below, and thank you for considering being a patron!

I'll call you after I release a new video to catch up and say hi, or leave you a fun voicemail if you don't pick up!  I'll also list your name in the video info description box so the world knows how much I appreciate you!  Please make sure your phone number is listed so I know what number to dial! :)

Goals
$122 of $1,000 per video
Once we reach $1,000 of support per video, we'll celebrate by filming the next video in a really unique place: on a mountain, in a cave, on a plane... who knows!
