Derek Sherinian: signs three album deal with Mascot Records

Derek Sherinian:
It has been over four year since I have sent out a newsletter. Since I do not do Twitter or Facebook, this will be the most direct way I can get news and career updates to you. There is a lot of exciting things on the musical horizon! I just finished two weeks in the studio recording Black Country Communion 2 with Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, and Joe Bonamassa with Kevin Shirley producing. It will be released in June with a U.S and European tour taking place in June and July.

I also signed a new 3 album worldwide solo record deal with Mascot Records. Simon Phillips will be co-writing, co-producing, mixing and playing drums on the record. I will soon be announcing the guitar guest stars which I am sure you will be pleased with.

I have been staying busy with session work in Beachwood Manor. If you are interested in having me play keyboard tracks on your demo or record, please contact John Calabassas at for rates and info.

I also have been teaching online keyboard and guitar lessons to people all over the world via Skype. I also have been teaching privately in L.A. Please contact John Calabassas at for rates and info.
