About Deepest Darkest

A rock group with roots in classic and indie sounds, Portland’s Deepest Darkest spans decades and genres with influences from Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon, The Shins and Jellyfish. Formerly of The Carolines, songwriter and lead singer Nate Purscelley brings his melodic brand of pop guitar rock to the project with Derby front man and guitarist, Nat Johnson. Beautiful vocal harmonies, growling guitar riffs, and even some brassy trumpet parts can be heard during their energetic sets. A must see act.
