Derri Daugherty (October 13, 1958 - ) is an American record producer, songwriter, guitarist and singer, best known as the lead singer and guitarist for band The Choir.

Daugherty's guitar palette makes use of distortion and exaggerated colors to convey maximum emotional impact, while his vocals betray an interest in exploring the existential experience of the song far more than delivering an exact reading. Daugherty is also one of the founding members of the Roots music supergroup Lost Dogs with Terry Scott Taylor, Michael Roe and Gene Eugene.

Daugherty began his musical career as an engineer and roadie for the band Daniel Amos. D.A.'s bassist, Tim Chandler, introduced Daugherty to Steve Hindalong and the two soon began to write songs together and eventually formed The Choir. Daugherty also owns and operates Neverland, a recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

Daugherty's engineering credits include albums for Randy Stonehill, Swoon, Lifesavers Underground, Michael Knott, The Prayer Chain, Riki Michele, The Waiting (band), Sarah Masen, Pierce Pettis, Common Children, Jeff Johnson, Caedmon's Call, Buddy Miller, Julie Miller, The Throes, and others. In recent years, Daugherty also became quite an accomplished producer, with albums by Twila Paris and Sheila Walsh to his credit. Perhaps his most well known production work is with Hindalong on the City On A Hill series.
