Help our musician Derek F. Smith be World’s Greatest

YOU may have heard him in your favourite local pubs and now Derek F. Smith needs your help.

After winning the 2015 Spirit of Bundaberg Battle of the Bands and being a feature artist at the 2016 Tamworth Music Festival, Derek is in the running to win again.

Derek is competing in the World's Greatest Musician in Toyota's Feeling the Street competition and he needs the Fraser Coast to get behind him.

Derek thanked the Fraser Coast for the support they have already showed him during his musical career.

"I am so thankful to have the support of the Fraser Coast, be it turning up to my gigs, buying my music or voting for me - I wouldn't be where I am today without you all. There is nothing better than playing on the Fraser Coast and to take out this award would be an amazing privilege," said Derek.


Support a great, emerging local artist, by heading to feelingthestreet.com and voting for Derek F. Smith!

Entries close tomorrow.
