Deaf Poets music is unabashedly raw, a sound that runs wild and rip-shit riot. It’s the sound of guitars, distorted and dialed all the way up, buzzing like a chainsaw at your door; of vocals growing from a dulcet growl to an all out howl; of drums that hit like a freight train, so hard you think the heads are going to pop. It’s garage rock made by two guys who just like to go on stage and wail.

Biography

Deaf Poets are an American garage/alternative rock duo consisting of Sean Wouters (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Nico Espinosa (Vocals/Percussion), born in Miami Beach, FL and currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. Their music is unabashedly raw, raucous, and loud, raging through the wild buzz and hiss of Wouter’s distorted guitars and the fever-pitch hits and pulsating momentum of Espinosa’s drums. Their boyhood rock and roll idols, from Jimmy Page to Kurt Cobain, eventually became their influences as they combined elements of ‘70s rock and a shot of ‘90s grunge to define their sound.

Deaf Poets cemented their place in the South Florida music scene by performing at venues across the region. In 2014, they were awarded the title, “Best Band of Miami” and were included in the, “20 Most Influential People of Miami” in 2015, by The Miami New Times. Their single, “Degenerate Mind”, from their debut album, “4150”, was selected to be a part of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 video game soundtrack and was also featured in Classic Rock Magazine's compilation CD in 2014. Deaf Poets have become regulars at Miami’s iiiPoints music festival performing four years in a row, alongside acts like Mac Demarco and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Since 2015, Deaf Poets have spent much of their time on the road, touring and sharing the stage with Matt and Kim, The Growlers, Best Coast, The Naked and Famous, The Psychedelic Furs and DOROTHY. In 2017, Deaf Poets released their sophomore album “Lost In Magic City”, before relocating to New York in 2018 and releasing their latest EP, “Change and Bloom”, their most ambitious and personal work to date.
