NICK FAYE & THE DEPUTIES - EPK
Nostalgic and familiar, Nick Faye and The Deputies play a brand of late-90’s inspired pop-rock drenched in Canadiana. The band consistently delivers high energy live performances and has become renown for their comedic and outlandish stage banter. They are set to release their third studio full-length, Stumbling Distance which was produced by Juno/Polaris award winning producer Michael Philip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Amelia Curran) on April 20, 2018.
In recent years, Nick Faye & The Deputies has toured alongside rising Canadian stars Megan Nash and Colter Wall. They have also performed alongside Andy Shauf, Arkells, July Talk, Elliot Brood, Library Voices, and Northcote and have appeared at a number of high profile festivals including Regina Folk Festival, BreakOut West, FOCUS Wales, Folk Alliance International, CMW, NXNE, and JunoFest.
"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
“Focusing Prairie longing and feeding it through a classic countrified rock filter, the record was given a pop sheen by Michael Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Buffy Sainte-Marie). Whirling organs, honking horns, swooning pedal steel, and choruses as big as the Saskatchewan skies are very much the order of the day.” – Ro Cemm, The Line of Best Fit (UK)
"The Regina quartet have that good ol' Canadian sound down - think Ryan Adams fronting a prairie-based Arcade Fire." - NXNE (Toronto, ON)
