The band consists of Sean Wouters (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Nico Espinosa (Vocals/Percussion). Their music is the embodiment of hard-hitting drums with distortion-soaked guitars. Wouter’s childhood influences, such as Jimmy Page and Kurt Cobain, led the duo to combine elements of 70s rock, with the aggressiveness of 80's punk, and an added aspect of 90s grunge to define their sound. The duo met in elementary school; and during their high school years, they went through a long process of musical experimentation, which ultimately led to the founding of Deaf Poets. The duo cemented their place in the South Florida indie scene by performing at numerous music venues across the city such as, Churchill's, Bardot, Gramps and Grand Central- ultimately earning the title, “Best Band of Miami” in 2014 as well as being apart of the, “20 Most Influential People of Miami” award in 2015, by The Miami New Times. Their single, “Degenerate Mind”, from their debut album “4150” was selected to be a part of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 video game soundtrack and was also featured in Classic Rock Magazine's compilation CD in 2014. Deaf Poets have become regulars at iiiPoints music festival, performing for four years in a row, alongside acts like, Mac Demarco and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. In 2015, Deaf Poets supported the indie dance duo, Matt and Kim, throughout their Florida tour dates. They have also shared the stage with Andy Rourke, The Ettes, Pujol, Jennie Vee (Courtney Love), Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, The Peach Kings, The Psychedelic Furs and The Growlers. BEAU + LUCI - Flower children with rock ’n’ roll souls,” Beau + Luci, sisters from the swamplands of Southern Georgia, enchant audiences with hypnotizing harmonies and bluesy melodies. Growing up in Waycross, Georgia, just a few miles from the Okefenokee Swamp, their music combines the mystery and folklore of “the land of the trembling earth” with their own blend of bluesy Americana rock. Heavily influenced by the Allman Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Emmylou Harris, and Johnny Cash, with their undeniable approach to storytelling steeped in ageless spirituals, blues, and classic rock, Beau + Luci captive souls from all walks life. At the young ages of 19 and 22, raised listening to generations of diverse, legendary artists, these two sisters have cultivated their artistic skills from a vibrant and rich Georgia music culture.
