Amir Davidson (stage-named Amir Derakh) (born June 20, 1963 in Schenectady, New York), is an American musician of Persian ancestry. As of 1997 he is the guitar/synthesizer player for the band Orgy. He was once a guitarist in the bands Rough Cutt and Jailhouse.


After graduating in 1981 from Mission Bay High School in San Diego, California, Derakh played lead guitar for local bands Armed & Ready and Emerald. He moved to Los Angeles to replace Craig Goldy in Rough Cutt.

Besides Orgy, he has a side band called Julien-K, and made a guest appearance on Crazy Town's The Gift of Game album. Julien-K released a remix of Chester Bennington's solo song "The Morning After" which appeared exclusively on the soundtrack for the 2006 film Underworld: Evolution. Derakh describes the sound of Julien-K as Depeche Mode meets Chemical Brothers.

Derakh performed backing for Chester Bennington when he performed his song "Let Down" during 2005's ReAct Now: Music & Relief televised concert. He also made an appearance in the 2003 version of the film Freaky Friday and has worked with many other bands, including Coal Chamber.
