The Kurt Deemer Band
Blending the singer-songwriter sensibilities of band leader Kurt Deemer with an irresistible backbeat, the band serves up a signature collection of songs that defy simple definition yet remain familiar and accessible. With a wealth of recording and live playing experience, Kurt Deemer Band delivers both in the studio and on stage.
The Kurt Deemer Band is a union of veteran indie/underground musicians who emerged from the grungy Baltimore original music club scene and coalesced around the melodic pop songs of frontman Kurt Deemer.
Kurt's twenty-plus years of songwriting give his compositions the rich, timeless feel and style of a well-worn leather jacket as they draw from the same American musical heritage as Tom Petty and Dave Grohl. There is an unmistakable style that has been well honed but resits the stereotypes, incorporating influences from Richard Thompson to The Replacements, and from Lou Reed to Warren Zevon. Deemer's contemporary style of writing and his driving guitar push his band and the audience in unexpected directions, venturing where ordinary power pop rarely dares to tread.

Remember, we're always looking for fresh local talent to broadcast and promote, if you want to be involved you can provide us with some information about yourself as well as uploading a demo here.
