About Deer Tick
Deer Tick is comprised of singer-songwriter John McCauley, bassist
Chris Ryan, drummer Dennis Ryan, keyboard player Rob Crowell, and guitarist Ian O'Neil. John McCauley spent his formative
years in Providence, Rhode Island, where he began to develop an interest in music. He soon taught himself to play the guitar,
drums, and piano. While still attending high school, McCauley began recording his own songs and touring local venues. After
graduating from high school, his took his act on the road and embarked on a national tour. He usually would perform solo at
shows, but along the way, McCauley started forming a band. With rock, grunge, and country influences, his band was finally
formed and they became Deer Tick.
The rock band Deer Tick got their big break when they released their debut album,
"War Elephant," which included tracks like "These Old Shoes," "Not So Dense," "Diamond Rings," and "What Kind of Fool Am I?"
With a lineup change and being signed to Partisan Records, the band re-released "War Elephant," followed by "Born on Flag
Day." The success of this album allowed them to embark on a US tour and European tour, and critics hailed them as one of the
country-rock breakthroughs of the year.
Deer Tick continued to record and release records, and their fourth album, "Divine
Providence," was when they started to create their signature sound. With their edgier music, they were soon being compared
to bands like the Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and the Stooges. Their next album, "Negativity," followed the same musical style
as "Divine Providence," with a rougher sound and darker themes and lyrics.
Deer Tick's Breakthrough Album
Tick had started to make a name for themselves with their debut album, "War Elephant." Throughout the years to come, they
released similar albums and would be labeled as indie folk or folk rock. Growing tired of the comparisons, the band opted
for a different approach, and came out with their groundbreaking fourth studio album, "Divine Providence." The album was noticeably
more edgy, dark, and with the same raw energy of bands like the Rolling Stones. By this point, Deer Tick had started to create
their signature sound that fans have come to know and love from the band. Their next album, "Negativity" was similar in its
musical and lyrical feel.
