Singer-songwriter and North Carolina native Derek Lee Bishop has just recently self-released his debut album Better Days. Derek Lee Bishop creates a hushed homespun brand of blues-oriented indie folk in the same vein as Iron & Wine with quieted yet confident vocals and rootsy finger-style guitars, while maintaining a widely accessible appeal similar to other singer-songwriters such as David Gray and John Mayer. Bishop began his musical endeavor training in classical guitar and piano and wrote the songs that ended up on Better Days while playing in coffee shops. His approach to songwriting is blended with a touch of both of those elements, highlighting a strong grasp of melody with intricate yet sparse arrangements that make the most out of each song. His voice is rich, warm and inviting and his songs are instantly familiar like a bear hug from a long lost friend. Lyrically, he focuses on his Christian faith and related themes such as love, forgiveness, hope and family.

"Sweet Pardon" opens the album with a passionate, dashboard confessional of Derek's deep and breathy voice set to striking piano chords and cascading acoustic guitars in front of a wall of gospel tinged organ. The title track, "Better Day" features a positive message, endearing vocals and entrancing cyclical guitar figures along with a poppy, sing along chorus. The mid-tempo stand out track "Not Of This World" introduces drums and bass into the mix for a rollicking, bluesy shuffle that invokes the soulful swagger of early Ben Harper and showcases Bishop's wide range and skill, to give you a glimpse at what he would sound like leading a full band on a larger stage as opposed to alone in the coffee shop.

Better Days Listened to Derek Lee Bishop's CD Better days last night and loved the whole CD. The songs have a message and Derek made this CD for a greater purpose. 100 percent of the proceeds he gets from the sales are going to help rescue little girls that have been sold into India's sex trade.

This cd has been anticipated for quite a while! My ears are so happy after listening to this collection of heartfelt songs. Each song's sound and lyrics are so different from one another and the entire cd has a genre of it's own. Any mood that you are in, you can find a song that fits!
