Caleb Stanislaw has finally put together a band that allows him to explore and express his many emotions through music as the frontman for his band “deep sleepers”. After having been involved in the Ft. Worth music scene for the last 10 yrs. Caleb is extremely happy about this because, as he says, “ I’m an emotional beast. Grappling with that, thinking about it, trying to figure it out. That’s pretty much why I write anything.”
Poet, songwriter, guitarist, and performer- Caleb displays these emotions through his masterful guitar work, his poetic lyrics, and the band who all contribute their considerable talents to play the songs. Their recently released self-titled EP contains songs using several different genres of music to express these emotions successfully through Texas blues, rock and roll, folk, and maybe a Wilco influenced tune or two.
The band features long-time friend Zach Williams on lead guitar, veteran bassist Curt Rode, and Zach Mayo on drums.The guitars are big on all these tunes, and several songs feature awesome solo work by both Williams and Stanislaw. In fact, two lead players in a band can prove difficult, but Williams and Stanislaw have distinct playing styles arranging these tunes so that their playing complements each others solo work.
The last track on the EP is “Legacy,” a powerful critique of commercialism and “stuff-culture” done in classic singer-songwriter style, with just acoustic and vocals. Catch deep sleepers in a live show and listen to their EP.
MACT is proud to recognize deep sleepers as our April 2021 Artists of the Month! Be on the lookout for a new album soon!
