About Deer Fellow:
Deer Fellow is an indie folk-pop duo with “comforting yet bold musicality.” Based out of Austin, bandmates Matt Salois (guitar, vocals) and Alyssa Kelly (violin, vocals, piano) met at an open mic and were quick to collaborate. Fast forward to present day and coupledom, the two have built a cross-genre sound that “stirs hearts with each carefully crafted note.”
The duo's vocal harmonies and unique guitar-violin blends have landed them features on EARMILK, KUTX Radio, and the Austin American-Statesman. Often compared to the likes of Andrew Bird and Arlo Parks, Deer Fellow’s 2023 EP Unraveling presents a collection of captivating songwriting and soundscapes that “shine with authenticity.” From live shows with indie greats like Field Guide to virtual festivals alongside such artists as John Paul White of The Civil Wars, their style has garnered attention within the indie music industry. Fans describe their live performance as an experience that “gives that warm tingly feeling, like taking a bubble bath with a glass of champagne.”
