Album Notes
With a distinct fusion of rock, folk, and americana roots, the music of the Deceptions captivates the audience with mature lyrics and diverse musicality. Their songs illustrate the distinct lyrical styling of songwriters Jared Fretz and Dan Krofcheck. For nearly a decade this song writing team has been unwavering in their commitment to the revitalization of original Americana/ roots rock and roll. This tandem has produced a vast catalog of original titles, and has brought to life honest stories about transformation, uncertainty, new beginnings, and sometimes heartrending endings. Their music is unpredictable, and their catalog ranges from ethereal guitar-driven epics to folk-style mandolin and accordion driven sing-a-longs. Their sound is influenced by a multitude of artists including Ryan Adams, Wilco, the Old 97s, the Counting Crows, Johnny Cash, The Band, and Neil Young. The band's first full-length album, Sinner's Soul, was independently released in November 2009. The 10 track LP was produced by the Deceptions and recorded under the direction of engineer Doug Kasper at Soundscape Studios (Anti-Flag, Vibro-Kings, Ford Thurston). Mike Machosky of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review remarked that the record is a "well-written platter of roots rock, drawing from the Northern roots-rock tradition of Neil Young and The Band. The sturdy songs are mostly built around the acoustic guitar, but often expand with organ and accordion into soulful, panoramic epics."
