The True Deceivers have been developing their own blend of rootsy folk rock/Americana since their formation in 2003.
Since then they have played hundreds of gigs across the UK becoming regulars at festivals including Guilfest, Weyfest, Peterborough Festival, The Welsh International Motorbike Show, Haslemere Fringe Festival and Bearded Theory. During this time they have shared stages with the likes of The Stranglers, The Wonderstuff, Oysterband, Seth Lakeman, Three Daft Monkeys, Neville Staple, Dreadzone, Kate Rusby, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, and Hank Wangford.
2012 saw the long-awaited release of the band’s second album, Hell or High Water, which builds on the critically-acclaimed song writing and vocal harmonies of their 2007 debut Lies We Have Told. Hell Or High Water has been equally well received:
fRoots Magazine - Rootsy rock chooglin’ away in a gutsy backbeat. Time To Mend A Broken Heart and Wishing My Life Away really move.
Net Rhythms - Guitar chiming roots rock.
R2 Magazine - These guys enjoy playing the music they love.
