Deer Park is a collective of sorts, a band, yet also a person. It's always Mark Christopher Grassick, the man who writes and sings the songs. Deer Park started as a stage name and expanded. Now it also covers Ian Olney and Ryan Kalkman and at times has included members of Singing Adams, Goldfrapp and The Duke & The King. Together, they've played with The Acorn, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Cracker, The Fruit Bats, John Vanderslice, Luke Doucet, Dan Mangan, Camper Van Beethoven and many more. Their debut album was released in October 2009, featuring guest appearances from members of Woodpigeon, The Oxygen Ponies and Stagecoach. Lots of people said very nice things about it, including AltSounds, Americana UK, Bearded, The Line Of Best Fit, Culture Of Me and London Tour Dates.
