On Saturday 24th August we played our biggest show to date at the O2 Institute, in our home city of Birmingham.
After over a thousand applicants, we were thrilled to go through the various regional heats with some amazing other acts, but we were even more happy to WIN the competition!
THANK YOU so much for cheering us on at the show and for your messages of support from across the globe.
Chasing Deer create dynamic pop rock with powerful vocals and infectious rhythms.
Rob and Adam have racked up over 1,500 non-stop live performances around the world including the Royal Albert Hall, Trafalgar Square and playing to the President of Kenya. The band have supported UB40, Feeder and The Pigeon Detectives on festival stages.
Their musical style (likened to Spandau Ballet, Rick Astley and Hozier) and pioneering approach to British Sign Language accessibility in music has attracted the attention of national television, newspapers and radio. The band devised and curated the world's first fully accessible SOFAR Sounds show in June 2019.
Chasing Deer’s award winning original music has been featured on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing, as well as an interview on Sky News for the release of their debut album 'Hands On'.
Following the album, they released a cover of Elton John's ‘Rocket Man’, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and the original single 'unstoppable' for Pride in London. 'unstoppable' featured over 20 LGBTQ+ guest artists and was picked up by official Spotify playlists. The song was launched to a crowd of 10,000 people in Trafalgar Square.
Chasing Deer were the winners of the 2019 Soundwaves Music Competition, which featured nearly 1000 national competitors. They will be touring new material and an exciting new show worldwide in 2020.
Their debut album 'Hands On' is available to listen to now: http://smarturl.It/24a5az
