Bio & Press
Deep River Saints is an indie folk-rock band from Vermont. Their debut album was Acts of American Homes, an album that Seven Days called "A deep and honest self portrait" and the Burlington Free Press named one of the top local albums of 2015.
This project grew out of a mix of former, louder, bands that singer/songwriter Patrick J Crowley had in California and Vermont. Crowley spent years recording and touring in heavier alt-rock and experimental bands, but during that time he noticed an increasing number of quieter folk songs that wanted attention. That book of songs grew until a new project started in the studio, and finally in 2014 Deep River Saints began in earnest. After the release of Acts of American Homes, the group played the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival and other Vermont shows in 2015 before returning to the studio.
Today's incarnation of Deep River Saints aims to take their folk and Americana roots and breathe some fresh sounds into it, incorporating more ambience, psychedelia, jazz and blues for an original sound that complements the songs' lyrical focus.
The new sound lead to For Posterity, the band's second album, which arrives on April 6. It was produced and engineered by guitarist and composer David William Ross. Featured throughout the album are a variety of friends and session musicians. It's a work that looks back at the big questions of young-adulthood and watching friends go their separate ways.
