I'm Darwin Deez and I write and play all my songs on a 4 string electric guitar in my own tuning. I make indie pop music and my self titled debut album is currently available on UK based indie label Lucky Number. My parents are Baba lovers like Pete Townshend. Lovers of the spiritual master called Meher Baba. I'm one too I guess. I dance pretty well and I do it a lot on stage and on YouTube. I'm 26 years old. My parents bought me my guitar when I was 11. They also bought me drums when I was 16, but I suck at those now. I used to wait tables at a vegan health food restaurant. I'm not vegan but I like health food. My sometime bass player, Mash Deez, is the one who named me gave me the name Darwin Deez. She is my best friend and confidant. We make each other laugh and she inspires me to make music. She's never played bass before and neither has our drummer ever drummed. But I love them both as people and I want to be around them. I met Greg (drums) and Cole (guitar) at the vegan restaurant where I work. I used to play guitar for my friend Andrew's band, Creaky Boards. During that time, I wrote and recorded these songs of mine on an old PC with a $200 mic.
