DERRINGER: Bio

Sean Paxson formed Derringer in the spring of 1993 with the goal of creating a unique country-rock sound focusing on three part harmonies, solid song writing, and energetic stage presence.  Derringer, a group of talented and dedicated musicians from the Western Slope of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains are creating spectacular shows across the state. 

Drawing on influences ranging from Brooks and Dunn, The Eagles, to classic country, Derringer combines familiar sounds to create a style that is all their own.

 Derringer’s sound and show have made them a favorite across Colorado, playing festivals, rodeos and bars such as the famous Grizzly Rose in Denver and Whiskey River in Grand Junction.  Derringer has opened for national acts including The Pirates of the Mississippi, Doug Supernaw, Rick Trevino, Big House, Dan Seals, Michelle Wright, Ricky Lynn Gregg, The Smokin’ Armadillos, Ricochet, Kenny Chesney, STYX, Dwight Yoakam, Country Jam (1999 and 2000), Chris Ledoux, The Little River Band, Black Hawk, Tracy Byrd, Highway 101 and Collin Raye.

 In 1994 Derringer wrote and produced a ten song CD titled “Put A Little Kick inYour  Country”.  The CD landed airtime on major radio stations across Colorado including KISS Country-Grand Junction, SKI Country-Vail, KMTS-Glenwood Springs, and KYGO in Denver.  The CD sold over 4000 copies.

In 2011 the band released it's second CD "Rocky Mountain Rain" a 12 song CD of all original music written by Sean Paxson and arranged by the band. Derringer performs several of the songs in thier lived performances. The CD is available at the shows or at www.cdbaby.com.
