Todd Deatherage


"Texas twang with New York rock edge. A honky-tonk Elliott Smith."- Village Voice


Todd Deatherage started blending his love of old school country, jazz, and indie-rock in his hometown of Dallas, TX. After years of compiling songs, he recorded a disc, Dream Upon a Fallen Star, which was released in 2001 on Texas-indie label, Summerbreak Records. Old 97s frontman, Rhett Miller, is featured on a track. Shortly after, he moved to Brooklyn and quickly garnered a strong local following in the New York area. In early 2004, he signed to Lizard King Records in the UK (home of the Las Vegas band-The Killers).
He recently finished recording an EP produced by Whiskeytown multi-instrumentalist Mike Daly, engineered by Andy Taub, and mixed by Michael Brauer. With his band, he has opened for such acts as Rhett Miller, Old 97s, Wilco, Tommy Stinson, Brendan Benson, Slobberbone, Jesse Malin, Josh Ritter, Damnwells, The Presidents of the USA, and Reverend Horton Heat. He is currently working with producer Damien Mendis.
