Playdeaf albums "In its purest form, Rock should be a mix of melody, lyric and voice with a sound so pure and tantalizing, it's capable of cradling your genitals."
This is the credo that propelled singer/songwriter Jeff Payne as he composed and recorded songs on his handy laptop. Songs that mixed raw, powerful vocals and brooding heavy guitar tones in a sound reminiscent of early 90's rock, but with an originality sadly lacking in today's rock music.
Recruiting the talents of "Chowder" and "Helder" on bass and drums respectively, Payne took the material he'd created on his own to a whole new level with the formation of playdeaf - a musical partnership of intoxicating boldness and creativity.
Their sounds pour through the mic and out the amps like a tsunami wave about to break. Raw and uncompromising, it's music that layers passionate, gut punching vocals, with dynamic bass lines and lavish drums & guitar tones.
Truly, the music of playdeaf must not only be heard, but experienced.
And, as their legion of fans will tell you, once you've had your genitals cradled by the music of playdeaf, you'll want to have your genitals cradled again and again. You have been warned.
