Derek Sallmann in The Winery
Derek Sallmann was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and began writing and performing at an early age, tinkering around on his father’s guitar and experimenting with songwriting. He released his debut album, “All Seasons” in 2016 and immediately hit the tour circuit to bring the music to audiences across the country. He’s performed over 150 shows and already has a multitude of accolades under his belt including the Shepherd Express 2017 “Best of Milwaukee” Winner for “Best Acoustic Musician” and a Wisconsin Area Music Industry nomination for “Best New Artist” in 2016. He spent most of 2018 writing and recording the songs that comprise his latest EP “Love, Future You” with producer Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Cary Brothers, Joshua Radin) and co-writers Kyler England and Garrison Starr. The collection of songs is powerhouse pop perfection that will have listeners hitting repeat again and again.
