As I look into my crystal ball
I see the life I live
Fast, bright and sometimes confusing.
But there’s no place like home.
Bright lights and tall buildings
Sometime blocking my view and stifling my breathing.
But you see
I’ve grown to understand, that it’s all here for me to enjoy
My city life
Like everything that is outside of my being
It’s there for me see and enjoy
And my objective
Is to not to let it use or abuse me.
So while you’re in my city.
Living my life, in the City,
Deryo is a Pop artist who has released his fourth self released album “Brand New Day” (2014). This album was released by Will Records, a label started by Deryo in 2004. The depth of Deryo’s subjects within the CD evolves from his musical beginnings, where he wrote and recorded with other artists. These artists include: Carl Carlton, Two Tuns of Fun, Herbie Hancock, Rick James, Bennie Maupin and many more. The album however, is a departure from his past and is a new take on R&B, Pop, funk and dance music. On the album Deryo is playing all of the instruments such as keyboards, drums and performing vocally. I hope you get a chance to listen to it, I am sure you will be pleased and find it different from anything you’ve ever heard before.
