No matter what you hear, Deer Tick is really from Rhode Island.

Deer Tick is the project of singer/songwriter/retro-crooner John McCauley and his revolving cast of supporting players. McCauley claims he's from Providence, Rhode Island, but it sure sounds like he's from some point south of the Mason-Dixon line. As Deer Tick, he creates laid-back faux-southern folk-rock that's similar in sound to The Cave Singers (and maybe a little bit of M. Ward and Two Gallants, too).

Young McCauley's world-weary voice crackles over forlorn guitars and easy drum beats, but this music isn't really melancholy. The general vibe is more like, "Life sucks, but whattya gonna do." And it's certainly good to drink to.

Deer Tick most recently played shows with The Mountain Goats and have their debut album out on Jana Hunter's label, Feow! Records.
