Biography

“Music has always been an important part of my life,” says
lead singer Daniel Deputy. “It has played a major role in who I am today. My
goal is to create music to make a difference in others’ lives.”

In 2006, some friends in middle school wanted to start a
band. They dreamed of performing concerts and making records. One Sunday
morning before church began, they flipped to the very end of the Bible and
noticed that the pages were blank. At that moment, they decided they wanted to
name their band “Blank Pages.” As they made their way through high school, they
decided they didn’t want to be a typical band. They wanted to share their
Christian faith and encourage others with positive and uplifting music. They
wanted to create music that their peers could relate to. A lot has changed with
the band since 2006. Those kids have become adults. The band members have
changed. The band has grown spiritually, musically, and professionally. Many
obstacles have been thrown in the way. But through the years, the focus has
remained on God. A deeper meaning for the band name “Blank Pages” was later put
into place. Daniel Deputy says “Everybody has pages in their lives that are yet
to be written. We want to let them know that they have a future and that they
have hope, no matter what happens. God is capable of filling those blank
pages.”


Blank Pages is a Christian pop rock band based out of
Indianapolis, IN. Growing up, Blank Pages was greatly influenced by different
pop, punk, and rock bands of the 2000’s. The band is now on a journey to create
their own unique sound. “We want to create our own style of music” says Daniel
Deputy. “There is a lot of good music in the world. New music is always being
released. But I don’t want to create the same music that is already out there.
I want to make something new. Creating our style is a never-ending process.”
It’s not just the musical notes and melodies that Blank Pages is focused on.
Just as important is the meaning behind the songs and the lyrics that connect
the song to the listener. Songs such as “Always” and “Guide You” share personal
testimonies about how God has worked in the lives of the band members. Other
songs, such as “Motivation,” and “Cross That Line” encourage the listeners in
various ways to live a life that God had intended for. The song “Everything and
More” tells the listener that he or she is special and does have a purpose in
this life, no matter what anybody else says. The song encourages the listener
to not to believe the lies of the world. David Deputy, drummer for Blank Pages,
states, “Our ultimate goal as a band is to reach out to people who do not have
a personal relationship with God and show them that He offers a love far
greater than any other.” 


With a serious side of the band also comes a humorous side
as well. Tyler Cherry, bassist of Blank Pages, says, “Being in Blank Pages is
an experience like none other. Between the shows and the long, crammed drives
spent in the van, there’s always room for a good time and a lot of laughs.” Daniel
Deputy says “While we are on the road, we always like to find some time to
enjoy the trip. There are some days that we consider ourselves tourists. I’m an
adventurous person, so every time we leave for tour is like a new journey for
me.”


Since 2011, Blank Pages has performed all around the country
at festivals, churches, camps, venues, and other events. The band has shared
the stage with numerous acts, including Family Force 5, Tenth Avenue North,
Kutless, All Time Low, Thousand Foot Krutch, The Afters, Icon for Hire, and
Fireflight. Blank Pages joined Seventh Day Slumber on the Small Town America
Tour in 2012 and joined Manic Drive on The Epic Tour in 2013. In 2011, Blank
Pages released the single “Goodbye,” recorded by Michael Sanders at Jetlag
Recordings. A music video was released for “Goodbye” later in the year, shot by
Green Sky Media. In 2012, the band recorded another single called “Cross That
Line” in Nashville, TN with producer Mark Lee Townsend. After a three year
hiatus from recording music and performing concerts, Blank Pages came back with
a new single called “I’ll Be There,” which was co-produced by Brad Linder and
Daniel Deputy at Greenville College and mixed by Isaac Moreno. “I’ll Be There”
was mastered by Kevin Bartley at Capitol Studios.
