Please check out Verity Credit Union, our great partner in the 100 Bands in 100 Days local music showcase.
Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our fourth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, presented by Verity Credit Union. Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag at Twitter on the daily to stay on top of all the bands featured and make sure to follow Verity on Twitter and NW_Music_Scene as well. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the sun yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured artist is Deify.
Inspired by the rock acts of the 70s and 80s, Deify delivers a modern blues-rock sound with smooth riffs, high energy drumming, and heartfelt story telling with a Northwest twist. The band’s latest release, The Masquerade is the first set recorded work to only feature Duncan (Vocals/Guitar/Bass) and Jared (Drums/Percussion).
The band was founded in 2008 by three brothers. After approximately five years of performing around the greater Seattle area, the band released its debut record “Between the Lines” which was recorded in the family basement. Following the release of the album, Deify embarked on a small tour of the Pacific Northwest.
In the Fall of 2015, Erik (the bassist of the group) departed from the band, leading to a two year hiatus. It was time to reinvent.
After two years of hard work, writing and recording, The Masquerade is a collection of 11 original songs with a focused blues rock/hard rock delivery. With its release, the band is revitalized and ready to rock n roll.
Check out the video for “Moonlight Swing” below.
Submissions for 100 Bands in 100 Days are still open to any Pacific Northwest band interested in submitting. If you would like to submit for a chance to be featured in this segment, consult this link for more information on how you can do so.
