A big show for a Monday night.
This will be Deaconâ€™s third visit to Savannah. He is currently supporting his new album America (Domino Records) that debuted on August 28th. America has been described by the New York Times as â€œa dark love letter of sorts to the countryâ€. Rolling Stone states that â€œhis music and sound-scapes depict the beauty and poetic nature of his homelandâ€.
With this new body of work, Deacon explores all dimensions of instrumentation, melding acoustic and synthetic tones, pop and classical scores, and experimenting with a host of players on a variety of instruments. In short, Deacon has honed his take on the sound of â€œAmericaâ€, uniting disparate elements to create a cohesive message: â€œThe future surrounds us. Let us beginâ€. Relevant to the recent election, Deaconâ€™s visit to Savannah is very good timing indeed.
