For real, for real – he performs under the name Derek Darker. It’s not a Halloween gimmick.
But tell you what’s a good shout, though. This Dublin-bred singer/songwriter is giving away a free download of his track ‘Demons’ as an exclusive for Maximum Pop!, all because it’s Halloween.

The emotive ballad, which sounds like something pulled from Sam Smith or Emeli Sandé’s files, is taken from Derek’s debut EP Conversations with Rose.
The EP also features Derek’s single ‘Numb‘, which shows off the young singer/songwriter’s polished vocals and some honest, heart-on-sleeve lyrics.
