They are called Common Deer, but this band is anything but common. You've never seen anything like them. Onstage they are mesmerizing; one musician jumps from vocals to violin to guitar while another moves from guitar to electric cello, or steps over to the synths and drum machine. This is done so seamlessly in a single song that it's truly a well-rehearsed game of musical chairs.
Common Deer -- Graham McLaughlin (vocals, violin, guitar), Sheila Hart (vocals, keys), Adam Hart (cello, guitar, synth), Liam Farrell (percussion, synth, samples) and Connor Farrell (bass) -- are exceptional multi-instrumentalists. Their debut EP, simply titled I, was written and recorded in 2016 and produced by Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep). It includes the creepy and crisp "Damages," a reflection on toxic codependency, and the bright, harmony-heavy "Settle Down," a call to arms for rejection of normative adulthood.
Common Deer will be playing Thursday June 29th at 6pm. This performance is part of the Seaport Summer Stage presented by Corona Extra. Located by the Garden Bar, the intimate concerts feature emerging and innovative music artists and DJ’s from all over the world.
