Goes Great With: Shawn Colvin, The Wailin' Jennys, Patty Griffin
Indie folk-pop band making music full of lush harmonies, delayed banjo pickin’, deep drums, and multi-layered lead vocals that draw the listener in.http://www.granadatheater.com/event/1390428/
Original members include upright bassist/songwriter Jesse Dalton (MilkDrive), guitarist/sound engineer Michael McLeod (Good Field, Richard Linklater film composer), drummer/pianist Alan Eckert (Dimitri’s Ascent), and Park. Together they combine the Southern Gothic soul they’ve had all along with new cross-genre inspiration: analog tape and reverb effects by engineer/assistant producer Grant Johnson, vocals and piano by Roger Sellers (Bayonne), pedal steel by Lloyd Maines, as well as the expert string stylings of both Dennis Ludiker (Asleep at the Wheel) and The Deer’s newest member, Noah Jeffries (MilkDrive, South Austin Jug Band), who adds orchestration to live shows. With Tempest & Rapture, The Deer has created a dynamic collection of songs ranging between the blissful and euphoric to the dark and the dangerous. Rooted in surreal folk and Southern gothic as much as transcendental surf-rock, The Deer moves fluidly between genres, eliciting emotion as varied and surprising as Tempest & Rapture implies.
The Deer have played Austin’s historic Moody Theater and the Legendary Stubb’s, as well as festivals like Kerrville Folk Festival, Old Settler’s Music Festival, Utopiafest, and Oregon Country Fair. Members have shared the stage with Alejandro Escovedo, Peter Rowan, Tony Rice, Tim O’Brien, and Dana Falconberry. Their co-bill roster includes Elephant Revival, Trout Steak Revival, Hot Buttered Rum, Jeff Austin, and more. They are currently writing music for their upcoming fourth album to be released in the late spring of 2017.
