Chasing Deer are creating a real buzz with their catchy and energetic pop songs, through writing, performing and living as a full-time band in London.
900+ live performances over the past three years have taken Chasing Deer across the UK and Europe, as well as Africa, playing supporting festival slots for UB40, The Pigeon Detectives and Feeder. They document their career in the weekly YouTube video series 'Deer Diaries'.
The band have received invitations to perform at The Royal Albert Hall, The Houses Of Parliament, Pride In London at Trafalgar Square and The Natural History Musem. They have also been lucky to be welcomed as guest performers at The Kenyan International Music Festival by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Self-releasing a new single every month of 2018, followed by their debut album 'Hands On', the band's artwork features a variety of hands using British Sign Language to portray each song title, raising awareness for BSL.
Music released by Chasing Deer has been supported by and received numerous plays on Touch FM and BBC Music Introducing (both national and regional shows), followed by interviews on BBC Radio London, Coventry and Warwickshire, West Midlands and Three Counties, with two mentions on BBC Radio 2 as part of their 'Happy New Ear-worm' feature. In addition, Sky News, The Metro Newspaper and London Live have featured the bands project and album launch show.
'Hands On' was performed in full to a sell-out, fully accessible album launch show at Bush Hall on November 22nd 2018, with British Sign Language interpreted performances of both Chasing Deer and two support acts on the night. The event’s sound was sponsored by Marshall Amps, with stage outfits sponsored by John Lewis Westfield. Interpreters were stationed at the venue entrance, bar and merchandise table to assist further with accessibility, as well as balloons being provided to amplify sound vibrations.
'Hands On' is available NOW on Vinyl, CD, Download and Streaming.
