We are The Deportees. With an emphasis on harmony-laden vocals, our music is a bit folk, a bit rock, a bit country, a bit pop. Our aim is to make romantic, but not sentimental, music that is as much informed by contemporary Americana and indie-rock as it is by the timelessness of Celtic folk.

Biography

We are The Deportees; five twenty-something musicians from Aberdeen, Scotland.

With an emphasis on harmony-laden multi-way vocals, our music is a bit folk, a bit rock, a bit country, a bit pop. Although relatively new to the scene, our members cut their teeth in such highly-rated Scottish acts as Edgar Prais (SuperVision Management/Helter Skelter Bookings/Dixie Cups Records), Eddison (Fat Hippy Records) and 10 Easy Wishes (Tangible Records).

Our aim is to make romantic, but not sentimental, music that is as much informed by contemporary Americana and indie-rock as it is by the timelessness of Celtic folk. The overall sound is unique; simultaneously fresh and forward-looking, but with one foot rooted in the folk tradition.

In our short existence, we have already secured high-profile slots as main support to Stornoway, Meursault, Sky Larkin, A Genuine Freakshow and French Wives, with a single – I Lost Her to the Sea - on the way in Spring 2011.
