Singer/Songwriter Derek Lai is one of those indie artists that create emotions with music. Lately, I think only a handful of new talents from Canada have done it successfully like himself. What’s more, most of his songs are a synonym of modern acoustic Pop like his recent single “Empty-Handed”. Of course, the spontaneity of the moment is a fundamental part of his creative process. Not to mention, he puts to work his imagination when it comes to creating stories that become authentic songs. All in all, his signature sound isn’t quite the same without splendid guitar arrangements. Wanna give it a try? Then stream in full “Empty-Handed” mixed by George Seara, who has worked with artists like Shawn Mendes and more big names in the industry.
