Deep Chatham was formed by guitarist Julian Sikes and upright bassist Jeff Loops. Ferociously talented songwriters, the duo crafted a heavy handful of original songs characterized by driving rhythms, intricate harmonies, and haunting melodies.
They immediately took their act on the road and began a relentless schedule of playing... music festivals, clubs, barrooms, and street corners from the deep south to the edges of the pacific northwest. Arriving in the tiny town of Talkeetna, Alaska, their paths fortuitously crossed with the gifted fiddle and banjo player Matt Heckler. The power of this songwriting trio was immediately apparent and the duo set forth as a power trio.
Arriving home in North Carolina after a series of highly successful shows from San Francisco to Maine, Deep Chatham recorded their long anticipated 2011 album, Words From The Well.
The trio recently picked up long-time friend and musical partner, Trevor Grassi, on the piano and accordion. With this new musical accompaniment, the four entered the studio again to create their second full-length album. The album was produced and engineered by Andrew Marlin (Mandolin Orange) at the Rubber Room Studios in Carrboro, NC. Their sophomore release Flood debuted in March, 2013.
Known for their dedication to their craft and willingness to play anytime, anywhere, the quartet sets forth once again with a new album to conquer fans with their high energy live performances and infectious songs. From the stages of music festivals to your local street corner, keep your eyes and ears open.
