About Mark DeRose…
Over the course of 3 years, DeRose had the pleasure of performing and working as a sideman on bass and backing vocals in the children’s music market. When that tenure ended in 2016, he realized how much he enjoyed performing music for children and struck out on his own as a solo performer. As well, as a singer/songwriter performing his own original work, DeRose has had the pleasure to open for national touring artists Rusted Root, Gin Blossoms, Michelle Branch, Edwin McCain, Blues Traveler, The Sugar Hill Gang and Josh Kelley. He has also performed as part of the NFL halftime show for the Baltimore Ravens and his music has been featured on daytime television.
