Deraps is a young, up-and-coming rock'n'roll band consisting of Canadian guitarist and lead singer Jacob Deraps (winner of the 2016 Dweezil & Frank Zappa Fellowship Award), Canadian bassist William Lachance and Australian drummer Josh Gallagher. The band brings a breath of fresh air to the scene, with a sound, vibe and style that can be described as exceptional in this form.
Although Deraps always approach their music and performances seriously, they still always capture the sound and essence of rock 'n' roll. Deraps' sound takes you right back to California's Sunset Strip of the late 70s, when a new generation of bands rocked the global scene, led by Van Halen, who heavily influenced the musicians of Deraps.
The self-titled explosive hard rock debut album combines 11 songs full of energetic rock'n'roll riffs, polished guitar solos and perfectly tuned harmony vocals.
From the opening salvo "Invasion" to the energetic debut single "Sex, Drugs & Rock N' Roll" (winner of Classic Rock Magazine Tracks of the Week), the stomping "Make Ya Groove", the epic "Veins of my Heart", the mellow Californian summer mood of "On My mind" to a cover version of The Sweet's world hit "Ballroom Blitz", this first album already has what it takes to become a classic!
