Chasing Deer are creating a real buzz with their catchy and upbeat pop songs, through writing, performing and living as a full-time band in London.
900+ live performances over the past three years have taken Chasing Deer across the UK and Europe, as well as Africa, playing supporting festival slots for UB40, The Pigeon Detectives and Feeder. They document their career in the weekly YouTube video series ‘Deer Diaries’.
This year Chasing Deer have received invitations to perform at The Royal Albert Hall, The Houses Of Parliament, Trafalgar Square for Pride In London and The Kenyan International Music Festival by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Releasing a new single every month of 2018, the band’s artwork features a variety of hands using British Sign Language to portray each song title, raising awareness for BSL.
‘Hands On’ was launched to a sell out, fully accessible show at Bush Hall on November 22nd, with BSL interpreted performances.
‘Hands On’ is available on Vinyl, CD, Download and Streaming.
“Don’t let your mind become a defeatist,
Just set your mind on becoming the greatest,
The cynics will say you’ll never make it,
The psychics will say you’ve already made it!”
“Stop dreaming”, people who say that are blaspheming,
They’re doing nine-to-five and moaning,
And they don’t want you succeeding when they’ve blown it!”
“Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew,
When I bit off more than I could chew,
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out,
I faced it all and I stood tall,
And did it my way!”
“You better lose yourself in the music, the moment,
You own it, you better never let it go,
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow,
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime!”
