The Deer
The Deer
Vocalist Grace Park (formerly Grace Rowland) fronted acoustic trio The Blue Hit. With guitarist/producer Michael McLeod (Good Field), upright bassist Jesse Dalton (Green Mountain Grass), and drummer Alan Eckert (Dimitri's Ascent), The Deer create a tonal landscape that blooms into orchestral depths. Their debut album, An Argument For Observation, represents their formation as a songwriting endeavor known as Grace Park & The Deer. They began touring and collaborating as a group, and changed their name to The Deer. Their second album, On the Essence of the Indomitable Spirit reflects their union, and is dedicated to the memory of their friend and backup singer. They continue to write and tour, and are currently recording a third album, due in Spring 2016. More at www.thedeer.org.

On Paper Bird,the band collaborates with world-renowned musician, singer and songwriter John Oates, who co-produced the album with Aikins' fellow Canadian David Kalmusky. The album was recorded and mixed at Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville, and for his part, Oates couldn' t be more delighted. "Paper Bird is a band that possesses a sound that' s more than the sum of its parts,"Oates effuses. "It' s the coming together of two perfect trinities. It has three distinctly unique female lead singers whose harmonies blend together as one...united with an inventive, cohesive rhythm section trio. I loved their sound from the first time I heard them and they just keep getting better. They are a true musical family united by a unique and pure artistic vision...a rare quality in this day and age of so much disposable and less than original music."Paper Birdhas a sound that blends the engaging vocal harmonies of Fleet Foxes and The Lone Bellow with the classic ' 70s stylings of bands like Heart and Fleetwood Mac without imitating or emulating any one of them in particular. Indeed, the new music is rugged, resilient and flush with enthusiasm. It conveys the essence of inspired Americana, while still staying true to its riveting rock regimen. Music is about more than sonics, it' s about the songs. The album starts with the soulful strut of"To The Light," and heads into desire and yearning with the single "Don' t Want Half." With its playful harmonies and rhythms, "I Don' t Mind"captures the ephemeral feelings of love, as "it' s not easy to be a dreamer, when you' re sleeping with the wind." Paper Bird merge the musical past with the present on "Sunday," conjuring up doo-wop, rock and groove sounds. "This is definitely the start of something exciting," Summeril suggests. "We' re at a point in our career where we feel we' re ready to take on the world."
