"austere singer-songwriter stuff of surpassing grace."-Chicago Tribune

It’s easy to hear the sad beauty of Passenger, the restless urgency of Jackson Browne, and the brooding fire of Ray LaMontagne in Derek Fawcett’s music.  His solo debut, FEEL BETTER was featured in Huffington Post and Fox 2 St. Louis, Something Else Reviews dubbed it “Best of the Year”.  His latest album, Sing Along, features live performances from the FEEL BETTER release tour.  Scroll down for tour dates and video.

His solo success follows a thrilling ride as a member of Chicago's beloved acoustic quartet Down The Line.  Across their span of five albums (including Open The Door, which was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville featuring Chad Cromwell (Neil Young, Mark Knopfler) on drums), they criss-crossed the US, sharing stages with Peter Frampton, Ben Folds, America, Lifehouse, Pat Benatar, Gin Blossoms, Colin Hay, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Blind Melon, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
