Deer Tick

Deer Tick is an American alternative rock band from Providence, Rhode Island composed of singer-songwriter John J McCauley, guitarist Ian O’Neil, bassist Chris Ryan and drummer Dennis Ryan. The band has been described as rock with folk, blues, and country influences, although the band actively rebels against the country tag, stating “we’re proud not to sing with a twang.” In their live sets the band regularly perform cover versions from The Replacements, Nirvana, John Prine, Hank Williams, Beastie Boys, Warren Zevon and Sonny West.
