The show is inspired by her father's vast record collection, which the singer heard from her formative years through teenhood. Derow weaves a story of how the songs she grew up listening to inspired her and helped her blossom into the multi-faceted performer she is today. Derow's set includes include classic pop hits and Broadway show tunes from legendary performers such as Judy Collins; Jacques Brel; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and a young Rosemary Clooney, as well as by contemporary artists P!nk, and Miranda Lambert.
In 2016, Derow revisited her operatic roots and took home a 2016 Bistro Award as "Outstanding Vocalist" for LEGIT: A Classical Cabaret. Then in 2017 and 2018, she explored the hit music of the "Greatest Generation" period with her MAC Award-winning ("Best Female Vocalist") My Ship: Songs from 1941, for which she was also nominated for BroadwayWorld.com Cabaret Awards for "Best Show" and "Best Vocalist." Since 2008, she has presented eight different shows, including Music 4 Two (with award-winning guitarist Sean Harkness), which earned a MAC nomination for "Best CD Recording." Her 2015 duo show, Revolution (with Kathleen France), won a MAC Award for "Best Revue."
