DEERPEOPLE is a rock band from Stillwater.
They have played alongside Vampire Weekend, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, as well as playing SXSW, Norman Music Festival, and the former Stillwater home of Garth Brooks.
In early 2009, a group of friends got together and started writing music. Eventually, they decided to call it DEERPEOPLE. Over the following year, they refined the songs by playing house parties and small local venues in Stillwater where the audience could be right on top of them.
In 2010, they released (and sold out) 500 hand-assembled copies of their debut self-titled EP. The EP was recorded at Bell Labs with Trent Bell.
In 2012, their EP Explorgasm was released on 10″ vinyl. The band collaborated with local artists The Drama Dept to put on a limited-run theatrical stage show to accompany the record release events in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
In 2013, members of the band moved to Oklahoma City. Their first full-length album is expected soon.
