On Saturday 24th August 2019 we played our biggest show to date at the O2 Institute, in our home city of Birmingham.
After over a thousand applicants, we were thrilled to go through the various regional heats with some amazing other acts, but we were even happier to WIN the competition!
THANK YOU so much for cheering us on at the show and for your messages of support from across the globe.
Chasing Deer is the energetic, pop/rock band, led by the powerful vocal of songwriter Rob Hodkinson.
Likened to Spandau Ballet, Rick Astley, and Hozier, the band have racked up over 1,500 non-stop live performances around the world. These include The Royal Albert Hall, The Houses Of Parliament, The NME Awards, and singing in Swahili to President Uhuru Kenyatta in Kenya.
Their pioneering approach to Sign Language accessibility in music has attracted the attention of UK national television, newspapers and radio. Chasing Deer has featured in the Metro Newspaper, on Sky News, BBC 2, and London Live TV. The band devised and curated the world's first fully accessible SOFAR Sounds show and were crowned 'Winners of the Soundwaves Music Competition 2019', which featured 1000 national competitors.
Chasing Deer was honoured to write the Pride in London single ‘unstoppable’, launched to 10,000 people in London’s Trafalgar Square. The song was chosen for the 'Out Now' Spotify official playlist and was supported by both BBC Radio London and BBC Introducing's radio shows.
The band kicked off 2020 with a tour of the UK, Europe and LA, for their 'Bad Decisions' single release. Rob performs a weekly live stream whilst producing new music for release in Winter 2020.
