"Regina, Sask., has long been a hot spot for indie-rock greatness (think Library Voices, Rah Rah and, way back, Despistado). Now you can add Nick Faye and the Deputies to that list." - Grant Lawrence, CBC Music
"The Regina quartet have that good ol' Canadian sound down - think Ryan Adams fronting a prairie-based Arcade Fire." - NXNE (Toronto, ON)
Nick Faye & The Deputies are a band from the deepest depths of the Canadian Prairies (Regina, SK). They make music that sticks to your ribs, like a big plate of perogies and sour cream. In Summer 2017, Faye completed his first European tour and the band has finished recording a new album with Juno and Polaris winning producer Michael Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Buffy Saint Marie, Amelia Curran). The new album will be released in Spring 2018.
The band has shared the stage with a mix of notable artists such as Arkells, July Talk, Andy Shauf, Shad, Rah Rah, Elliot Brood, Library Voices, Northcote, Colter Wall, and Close Talker. They have performed at high profile festivals in the USA, the U.K, and Canada including Regina Folk Festival, BreakOut West, Folk Alliance International, FOCUS Wales, CMW, NXNE, and JunoFest.
