Deepfield (often stylized as deepfield) is a US-American alternative rock band from Charleston, South Carolina, consisting of members Baxter Teal III, Aron Robinson, Ken Becker and PJ Farley. They have released two albums and one EP. Their music has been classified as alternative rock and post-grunge.
The band is currently based in Chicago, Illinois.
Deepfield was formed in Charleston, SC in 2005 by Baxter Teal, Eric Bass (now the bassist for Shinedown), Russell Lee (drums) and J. King (original bass player, moved over to guitar when Bass left the band to pursue producing and recording). The band's name came from the image of space taken by the Hubble telescope in 1995. After shopping a three-song demo the band found themselves playing a showcase in New York, where they were promptly signed by industry legend Bill McGathy to his new label, In De Goot Recordings.
After being signed to In De Goot Records (Fontana/Universal) in 2006 and spending more than a year writing, the band took over 70 demos into the studio with producers Paul Ebersold and Skidd Mills (3 Doors Down, Saliva, Third Day, Skillet, Saving Abel), before releasing the 12 songs on their debut record, Archetypes and Repetition (2007).
Aron Robinson joined the band on the 2008 Cage Rattle Most Wanted Tour. PJ Farley joined the group in 2009 and is also the bassist for the rock band Ra (Universal). Sean Von Tersch joined the group in 2010.
Archetypes and Repetition
The band released their debut record Archetypes and Repetition (Indegoot/Fontana/Universal) in 2007, touring the country extensively from 2007 to 2009 behind the singles "Get It" and "Into the Flood", the latter garnering "#1 phones" in several U.S. markets. Both singles are still in rotation on XM and Sirius Satellite radio and Get It can often be heard as the intro music to The Howard Stern Show.
Nothing Can Save Us Now
Nothing Can Save Us Now is Deepfield's sophomore effort, released December 6, 2011 through Skiddco Music label. The first single on the new album is the song "Nothing Left to Lose".
