DerekBodkin's Profile

About me:From his childhood, Derek Bodkin desired to play music to make people laugh, smile, groove, raise an eyebrow, and learn a story or two. Derek enjoys telling stories, and does so in many of his songs with "a startingly appropriate mix of the comic and ominous." (Pat Launer, KPBS radio.) Derek has a background and education in orchestral conducting, jazz composition and classical orchestral arranging, as well as playing drums in world percussion groups and many Big Bands, Jazz Combos. Spending many years in union orchestra pits playing musical theater. Derek decided to give Hollywood a shot and try his hand at writing music for movies and television. During his time there, he enjoyed working as a Voice-Over actor, so both his voice and/or music cues could be heard on documentaries, films, and network television shows, including CBS's "Diagnosis Murder" and ABC's "Sabrina The Teenage Witch." Additionally, Derek is hailed as one of the best melodic whistlers registered in the "Screen Actors Guild." Derek is working on releasing a new album and looks forward to sharing it with kindred musical spirits everywhere.
