“This Is Where It Begins...”
Aderrick
Aderrick, tagged as “uniquely creative, a cross between Prince and Nine Inch Nails” describes himself and his music best.  “The best performers make us feel the music.”
“This Is Where It Begins…” is the perfect album for listening to before or after the club or an inspiring night out. Tracks like; “Where It Begins” sounds like an effort of tight, guitar-driven rock. “What You Want” and “Dry Dance” have cool drumbeats to create engaging dance tracks. At this point you know it’s time to get up and dance. “One Of Them” makes naughty sentiments even naughtier and bondage even sexier.
Baring Aderrick’s mellower side are, “Say You Love Me”, “Apart” and “Something Better”. Truly highlighting his vocals and talent as a lyricist.
“The music is a fusion of rock and pop, with an edge to it;
It’s what your body has been waiting for.”
Aderrick has been featured on Expose’ TV show and Regional Music Underground (Chicago Public access music programs) and continues to perform at various venues.
Aderrick’s album, “This Is Where It Begins…” can be purchased at  CD Baby.com, Tower Records / Schaumburg, IL and Coconuts / F.Y.E. Chicago land locations.
