ABOUT THE ARTISTS
As the world of contemporary jazz music continues to expand and diversify, In Season Music Group boldly introduces an innovative group with definitive style and substance. The brainchild of two talented brothers, Daryl and Eric Minus, Minus2 uniquely combines Jazz, Funk, Gospel, and R&B elements into a soul-stirring, colorful collage of urban instrumental artistry.
Between the two of them, the Minus brothers have been creating and performing diverse musical styles for almost 30 years. The two began their musical journey as horn players in elementary school with Daryl deciding to study trumpet and Eric choosing to pursue the saxophone. After years of developing an instrumental foundation from their exposure to classical and jazz music, the undeniable influences of gospel and funk eventually became well known components of the Minus Repertoire. As their musical horizons broadened, the Minus brothers picked up new instruments: Daryl gravitated towards the piano, and Eric focused his energies on the bass, guitar, and drums. The evolution of the Minus2 sound has been years in the making. The Brothers have now come full circle to create a signature sound of the own, using all the music influences that have shaped their creative existence over the years. Minus2 is a group with a purpose: To build artistic bridges between musical genres.
ISMG presents the new voice of gospel. Committed, dynamic, and sincere – Derek Dunn is poised to take the world by storm. Growing up a “preacher’s kid” in the Tidewater Region of Virginia, Derek began singing in his father’s church at the age of three year’s old. His vocal gifts blossomed as he matured, and thirty years later, Derek has shared the stage with renowned gospel artists such as James Hall, Fred Hammond, Donnie McCLurkin, Jonathan Nelson, Earl Bynum, LaShun Pace Rhodes, and Deitrick Haddon. Derek has been deeply inspired by Gospel Diva Kim Burrell and Isaac Caree – and seeks to inspire others as these artists have inspired him. Each Derek Dunn project on the ISMG label reveals the influences of his vocal inspirations and the essence of his style: one that blends diverse musical genres into unique worship experiences. Determined to reach people in need of inspiration and encouragement, Derek Dunn is a gospel artist on the move.
