Derek Abt


Derek Abt, raised a traveler and adventurer, has seen the light and dark of many musical styles. With an open mind, he seeks to incorporate unconventional elements into the sound of Liver Down the River, occasionally inducing fear in his fellow band members. With influences from blues, hiphop, rock, and electronic music, Derek meets the rest of Liver in a very special space; a space we call THE FUNK. The divine connection between his endless need for groove and movement, and the remaining 5 elements of the band creates a sound that falls somewhere between an all-out party and a message from god.
