"Some truth came out of hitting the bottom”, says Deeps, the stage name of Steve De Piante.
Strange, how the only thing we can truly rely on is that nothing ever goes as planned. The same was true for Deeps - a musician and songwriter hailing from Hamilton, Ontario.
Though witnessing the life that once brought him comfort and familiarity crumble into something unrecognizable wasn’t how he planned it, it’s also how he found the freedom to pursue music full time - sacrificing the comforts of family and a living wage to get real.
Deeps first full length record ,In The Aftermath of Last Night, is due out March 2019., the single "Call My Name" with accompanying video was released Dec. 8. 2018, with over 1500 views in the first 2 weeks.
The album pays tribute to his Americana roots, with a heavy addition of bar-room pop rock. Like Springsteen, a strong hometown narrative runs through Deeps’ writing. Songs about rusting in Steeltown, rock n’ rolling to pay the bills and small city romance, delivered with attitude-filled vocals, and punctuated by southern gospel guitar, searing organ and upbeat drums.
Deeps set out on a cross-country solo tour on VIA Rail to celebrate Canada 150 in 2017, in 2018 he was awarded a CCMA Showcase and played solo and with full band across Southern Ontario.
Soon he’ll be taking the show across Canada in 2019. Whether it’s an energetic festival show for thousands, or an intimate house concert for twenty, the audience can expect passionate and authentic storytelling where one man’s experience of trial and error is bared for all to see and feel.
He would love to hear from you.
