Sarah and Stephanie Snyder are sisters who started out as journalists and now are musicians, music bloggers, and voting members of the Recording Academy (GRAMMYs).
Deer Park Avenue was the winner of Hard Rock Rising (Washington, D.C.) battle of the bands. Their debut EP Stop & Go has been nominated in many independent music awards and has been played on radio and online radio in the U.S. and overseas.
Their self-titled debut album is slated for worldwide release Spring 2016, after a PledgeMusic campaign that let fans go behind the scenes of the making of the new album. DPA worked with renowned producer and bassist Matt Bissonette, known for his work with Elton John, Brian Wilson, Rick Springfield, Don Henley, and many others. Their track “Countdown” features Grammy Award-winning drummer Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth, Santana, Ringo Starr), playing double drums with Stephanie. For this album, DPA live tracked the rhythm section, because it was more fun that way, and it was more real to them that way. Without the use of autotune or other digital manipulation, this album is a raw and high-energy debut.
Deer Park Avenue have been based in Sacramento, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and are currently in Munich, Germany.
The band is proud to endorse Audix Microphones, Epiphone, TRX Cymbals, KickPort, Reference Cables, PDP Drums, and Sonas Denim.
