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 (Rob and Adam) have racked up over 1,500 non-stop live performances around the world over the last five years, including The Royal Albert Hall, The Houses Of Parliament, The NME Awards and playing to President Uhuru Kenyatta in Kenya.
Their musical style (likened to Spandau Ballet, Rick Astley and Hozier), and pioneering approach to Sign Language accessibility in music, has attracted the attention of UK national television, newspapers and radio. Chasing Deer has featured in the Metro Newspaper, on Sky News, BBC 2 and London Live TV. The band devised and curated the world's first fully accessible SOFAR Sounds show and were crowned winners of the Soundwaves Music Competition 2019, which featured 1000 national competitors.
In addition, Chasing Deer were honoured to write the Pride in London single ‘unstoppable’, launched to 10,000 people in London’s Trafalgar Square. The song was chosen for the 'Out Now' Spotify playlist and broadcast multiple times on BBC Radio London and BBC Introducing radio shows.
The band kicked off 2020 with a tour of the UK, Europe and LA, for their 'Bad Decisions' single release. The 'Time Of Our Lives' Tour begins in April to coincide with new music.
