Bassist Derek Frank arrived on the Los Angeles music scene years ago with one goal in mind: To create good music with good people. That goal continues to be realized year after year, and Derek has made a name for himself as one of the hardest-working touring/studio bassists in Los Angeles. Building a career based on versatility, professionalism, and integrity, he has traveled the world several times over with a “who’s-who” of  A-list artists and bands. Currently, he is touring with country-pop superstar Shania Twain, while also making time for his own instrumental solo project, UK Acid Jazz group Down to the Bone, plus other gigs and recording sessions with various bands and artists. As a solo artist, Derek has released two albums under his own name; 2009's "Let the Games Begin..." and 2020's "Eleven Years Later".  Here's a list of touring/live performance credits:
