The groove based, progressive funk vibe that defines Deep Fayed is in constant evolution. A fusion of eclectic influences and inventive songwriting gives the Chicago group a sound that is unlike anything else. Headed by guitarist George Wundsam, Chicago based Deep Fayed is a four-piece powerhouse and often features vocals and emcees in the studio and live shows. ‘Fayed released their second album "Full Spectrum Of" in early 2017. The first single off F.S.O., “Places We Don’t Go”, premiered at Word Is Bond ahead of the LP’s release. The group continues to perform in Chicago and the midwest and is gearing up for their first extensive tour in 2018.
The song-writing is brought to life by the musicians, vocalists, and MCs he collaborates with. His first EP release Deep Fayed was written with Southside Chicago poet and MC, Lawrence “Binkey” Tolefree, and released in June 2013. Written at time when George was discovering a different side of the city and building relationships with new people, Deep Fayed is an anthem album for both Binkey and George.
Deep Fayed’s new release tells a touching story. With the title Full Spectrum Of, the LP includes themes of love and coping with depression. The songwriting moves more towards George’s attention the to process. The lush and detail oriented style of production helps sculpt out a more realized reflection of Deep Fayed. On this project, Chicago rapper “D2G” takes the mic as MC, alongside Catherine Poulos on vocals. Contributions from rappers “R.O.E.” and “Neak” go unnoticed as their verses aid in telling the album’s story of relationships and love. The musicians on the album are: Matt Wilson (bass), Chresten Hyde (drums), Cole DeGenova (keys), also with Kyle Liss (keys), Dane Crozier (percussion).
Deep Fayed released the single “Places We Don’t Go” on March 27 through The Word Is Bond, available now to stream at Soundcloud. “The vibrant soundscape is enhanced by a myriad of vocalists, starting with singer Catherine Poulos who sets the tone of the track with her lush melodies” - The Word Is Bond
“An eclectic blend of slightly-psychedelic rock and hip-hop, with an undercurrent of Chicago’s own South Side... For me, it was almost sensory overload.” - LocalLoopChi
