Erik Deutsch Band:
You could easily imagine that Erik Deutsch lives inside a piano. Thus it's no surprise that some of the worlds most demanding performers request Erik for their keyboard accompaniment. If they're lucky, they can get him in the rare moments when he's not leading his own group through a truly modernist take on the jazz tradition.
Having first come to prominence as a member of the funk-jazz collective Fat Mama, Erik has taken his talents across the country to play with some of the finest musicians available. Born in Washington D.C. but currently living in Brooklyn, NY, Erik splits his time between his own band and backing up artists like Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash, Alice Smith, Ellery Eskelin, Ben Allison, Steven Bernstein, and Theo Bleckmann. Deutsch holds the distinction of being the only keyboardist to tour regularly with 7-string guitar master Charlie Hunter, and is spent much of 2012 on the road with Shooter Jennings in support of their new album Family Man (on which he is prominently featured). He is currently touring with Citizen Cope in support of the new release One Lovely Day.
2012 marked the release of Deutsch's 3rd album Demonio Teclado, a psychedelic blend of retro soul-jazz and rock. Recorded live to 1/4-tape in Erik's building in Williamsburg, the new songs are a fun, listenable blend of groove, sonic exploration, and modern jazz composition.
Shooter Jennings has worn many hats throughout his career: the self-described "son of a rebel saint," the hell-raising vigilante minister at a revival of true country music, the radical prophet using rock and roll as his medium, the guiding light for an ever-growing army of young musicians who are, like Shooter himself, outsiders in today's music business. Now after a career where he has done everything from sharing the stage with Alice in Chains to writing songs for the Oak Ridge Boys, Shooter has finally revealed the man at the heart of it all when he released Family Man on Entertainment One Nashville.
