“Derik’s incredible vocal talent, songwriting, and genuine discipline sets him ahead of other artists.  This tour concept is absolutely revolutionary, and I’m so proud of Derik for the way he’s impacting and fundraising for music education in schools.”

  • We explored the most amazing historic railyard this evening that has been half-renovated... It was like walking through a time warp. One of the few remaining roundhouses in the country is right here in Evanston, Wyoming.

  • There is freedom in simplicity. In life, in love, in music. The problems we face that require complex and difficult solutions often go against what is natural, what is emotionally just, and what our heart wants most. Embrace the clarity and the power that comes with choosing not to overthink, overwhelm, and overcomplicate. 🔸
Lately I've been learning what it means to fall in love gracefully and gradually, and the peaceful glow of happiness that exists as the result of a simple be-in-the-moment state of mind. I'm rediscovering the power of music without restrictions, and the joy of harmony. To enact your creativity is to imprint your soul upon the world--why settle for anything other than your soul in its purest and simplest state? 🔸
Simplicity is my thought of the day. What does simplicity mean to you? 🔸
📸: @daltennelson, from our original music video "The Way It's Gonna Go." (Link in bio) Originally written as a break up song based around a mantra of wisdom bestowed upon me by @riananelson ("just remember derik, it's gonna go the way it's gonna go"), but the song has become a favorite for weddings, too. I love when old songs show me new meanings.

  • An incredible hike today with the whole fam. I love summers in Washington... We sang up and down mountains and through thick old growth forests today and it rejuvenated my soul. At one point I carried a large stick around to protect everyone from cougars and bears (#heroic, duh). Very thankful for @riananelson and @daltennelson ❤️👱🏻👸🏼👱🏻
