We're Deer Park. We're based in London and urgently need a guitarist with a penchant for all things rootsy, rustic and twangy. You also need to have a strong voice for backing vocals and if you can play anything else, that's a huge plus. We released our debut album in late 2009, mastered by Billy Stull (Okkervil River, Midlake, Shearwater), artwork by Jesse Le Doux (Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith, The Shins) and Julie Miller (Centro-matic, South San Gabriel) and with guest spots from The Oxygen Ponies, Randi Russo and Woodpigeon. We're managed by Gilles Pugatch in the US (Chris Mills, Land of Talk) and Noelle Fox in Ireland (Sam Foggarino, You Am I). We've been described as "The Hold Steady gone a bit celtic" amongst other things. We love Wilco, Whiskeytown, The Replacements, The Hold Steady, The National, Okkervil River and The Mountain Goats. We're off to the US in April for a string of show in New York and environs. If this sounds like your kind of ride, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
