Derrin Nauendorf

Singer, songwriter and guitarist - impossible to categorise yet so easy to enjoy

The hunk from Oz - who has been labelled the Australian Bob Dylan - does share much in common with America's folk-rock god.

Derrin's own songs are pithy, poetic and hard-hitting, usually themed around love and relationships, and with genuinely interesting lyrics. But Nauendorf remains a performer who's hard to pigeonhole. There's shades of Springsteen in there, too, some dramatic spaghetti western flavoured instrumentals and even a few base riffs that bring to mind Duane Eddy or Hank Marvin.

Derrin is essentially his own man and he would certainly play Dylan off the stage as a guitarist any day. The tortured sounds he wrings from an acoustic Yamaha are totally unexpected, as is the blistering fingerpicking he occasionally launches into, or the blurred right hand rhythm blasts that wouldn't disgrace Pete Townshend.
