Spotlight On Daytrotter Barnstormer Tour: Deer Tick

The Spotlight

We introduced you to the Daytrotter Barnstormer Tour and artist lineup yesterday. Today we’re going to take a closer look at one of the festival’s headliners, Deer Tick.Originally the solo project of singer/ frontman John McCauley, Deer Tick has since evolved into a full-fledged indie folk band with the support of a revolving cast of other musicians.

With a rough-spun alt country style and a voice reminiscent of Jeff Tweedy, Deer Tick has drawn comparison’s to Uncle Tupelo.  You can easily imagine them playing in one of Barnstormer’s unique venues (the bands often perform in barns), their sound a near perfect distillation of what the tour is all about.

For a taste of the action, check out this track off of Deer Tick‘s new album Divine Providence – “Miss K”
