We thought the mainstream saga was over but here comes another album from the family that created half of Jodeci. Derek DeGrate (surname of the family) will release his debut solo project featuring productions from brothers Dalvin DeGrate of JODECI and Justin Burton-DeGrate. The album, entitled Derek DeGrate “The Other Brother,” includes a variety of music flavors ranging from urban inspirational lyrics, to real R&B. Derek, like his older brother DeVante, and baby brother Dalvin, has been involved in music ever since he was a child. Not a newcomer to the charts, Derek has written several songs including three Top-20 national charted songs in the gospel market. He has also written or performed bass guitar lines for several projects, including JODECI, and major movie soundtracks including “Strictly Business”, starring Halle Berry and Tommy Davidson. The new album will feature tracks with DeVante and Dalvin.
