The Rhode Island band Deer Tick has quickly become one of my current favourite bands. Their sound is a mix of folk, blues, country and rock. The band started out as a solo project with founding and lead guitar and singer John J. McCauley III and grew into a now 5 member band including: Christopher Dale Ryan (bass, vocals), Dennis Ryan (drums, vocals), Ian O'Neil(guitar, vocals), Rob Crowell (keyboard). The band currently has four albums out: War Elephant (2007), Born on Flag Day (2009), The Black Dirt Sessions (2010) and Divine Providence (2011).
I've been dying to see Deer Tick live, I'm just 'patiently' waiting for a Canadian tour date. Here is a small taste of what I mean by a wicked band they are. Here is my current favourite song Miss K from the album Divine Providence (2011).
