R&B Vocalist and Producer | Independant Artist
Deyo’s first instrument was a set of turntables and a crate of vinyl records at age 7, mixing 1990s hip-hop and early techno music. At 9, he migrated to the guitar, practicing daily behind closed doors for over a decade before being recruited to play lead guitar on a stage. A few years and a few bands later, he formed the group Hibbity Dibbity, a funk-rock band, touring across the US and playing major music festivals. Between tours, while bartending in a dark and dingy jazz club, he learned to play the keyboards. Deyo went on to build Tropical Hideout Sound Studio in San Francisco, CA taking on the roles of producer, engineer and session musician. In 2018, he finished work on his debut solo record with co-producer, Jeremy Black (Apollo Sunshine, AWEFEKT, Geographer, Langhorne Slim). This year he also composed, produced, engineered and mixed Hibbity Dibbity’s third album. Alongside his brother Nicholas, Deyo also writes and produces electronic R&B music under the name BRAUN.
