One of Canada’s most respected writers and promoters, Richard Flohil, intrigued her one day, talking about an up and coming young singer/songwriter named Deeps. “You can’t help but like this guy. He probably smokes too much. Likes a drink or two. Super attractive to young women, definitely. But much more importantly, he’s a tough and gritty singer with a voice that cuts through the clutter with songs that say something, mean something, and stick to the inside of your gut. Deeps? Yeah, the name fits the artist. Y’oughta check him out.”
Every room in his Hamilton, Ontario house contained some reference to music. Not all that unusual for a muso really. More unusual is that a muso owned a house at all. She watched as Deeps (aka Steve Vincent De Piante) organized his month: gigs, lawn work, production set-up at The Cotton Factory’s Mule Spinner recording studio/live event venue, more gigs, production manager for the legendary Boris Brott and his philharmonic orchestra, gigging, song writing, gigging, drywall taping, more song writing, and an occasional meal, beer chaser, thrown in just to keep him going.
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 8000 views to date.
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.
