Deer Tick

American alt -country band from Providence, Rhode Island led by guitarist and singer-songwriter John McCauley. Deer Tick’s music has been described as a combination of folk, blues, and country. Originated as a John McCauley solo project in December 2004, he toured all across the U.S. by age 19, and the project eventually evolved into what is now known as Deer Tick. Memebers include John J. McCauley III, Christopher Dale Ryan, Dennis Ryan, Ian O’Neil, and Rob Crowell. Deer Tick would soon earn comparisons to pioneering indie and alt-country acts such as Bright Eyes,Modest Mouse, and Uncle Tupelo.
