Deryk with a "y" is ready to strum his way into Take 10 history on the Gazette Facebook news platform on Friday during the noon hour. Deryk Cunningham plays guitar, writes original music and sings. The Montana transplant has been performing in the Pikes Peak region for more than two and half years. Cunningham likens his music to rock 'n' rollers Ryan Adams and the Goo Goo Dolls. Certainly an unusual combo, but for him it works, "I'm an entertainer with a soul."
His passion for music is genetic. His father was also a guitarist and singer in the 80's and 90's.
Unlike his Dad, who was also a full-time postal carrier, Cunningham has chosen a full-time path in music for himself to hone and dedicate himself to his craft. He says when it comes to his show, "It's about crowd interaction and self-deprecating humor."
Don't miss Cunningham's performance on our Take 10 Gazette Facebook platform.
