Currently based in Chicago, Illinois, deepfield (the “d” is always lower case) was formed in Charleston, SC in 2005 by singer Baxter Teal, guitarist Eric Bass (now the bassist for Shinedown), drummer Russell Lee (drums) and bass player J. King. After only shopping a 3 song demo the band found themselves playing a showcase in New York, where they were promptly signed by industry legend Bill McGathy to his new label, In De Goot Recordings.
“Archetypes and Repetition”, the 12 songs debut album produced by Paul Ebersold and Skidd Mills was released in the summer of 2007. The band toured the U.S. extensively from 2007-2009 with bands such as Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle Of Mudd, Saliva, Saving Abel, Drowning Pool, Tantric, Nonpoint and The Exies.
Delivering a post-grunge flavored modern rock tied with solid hooks and pounding rock themes, deepfield sounds powerful, massive and mature, merging melodies and harmonies with energy and strength.
The band’s name is a reference to the Hubble Deep Field, an image of a small region in the constellation Ursa Major, based on the results of a series of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. It covers an area 144 arcseconds across, equivalent in angular size to a tennis ball at a distance of 100 metres.
The current line-up consist of Baxter Teal – lead Vocals/guitar, Aron Robinson – drums, Sean von Tersch – lead guitar and PJ Farley – bass/vocals. The leading single of the new album, “Nothing Can Save Us Now” is a modern rock anthem, build up on powerful guitar riffs and catchy choruses. “Give Until It Hurts” is another strong rock composition with grinding guitars and memorable vocals and the album is balanced between hard moments and smoother, slower and lyrical compositions.
