INTERVIEW at VOCALO 91.1FM Chicago
Chicago progressive Hip Hop / Jazz project Deep Fayed recently released "Full Spectrum Of," a new album that explores themes of love and coping with depression. Jesse Menendez spoke with band leader George Wundsam about the new album.
ABOUT DEEP FAYED:
Deep Fayed is the brainchild of Chicago guitarist and songwriter, George Wundsam. The groove-based, alternative vibe that defines Deep Fayed is in constant evolution while sticking to its roots in funk, jazz and hip-hop music with a progressive flare. The fusion of eclectic influences and inventive songwriting gives Deep Fayed a sound that is unlike anything else. ‘Fayed released their debut, self-titled EP in 2013 and their first album "Full Spectrum Of" in 2017. The single “Places We Don’t Go” premiered at Word Is Bond ahead of the LP’s release.
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. 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)

“I really like the idea that your past influences your future, but it’s your decisions in life that make you who you are… your past and present self are different, but the same. Places We Don’t Go conveys two perspectives based off the verses written by D2G. They’re also heard within the contrasting sections of the music. I wrote the choruses, sang by Catherine Poulos, from the perspective of a kid experiencing the pain of loneliness, while D2G’s verses are through the eyes of a young couple expressing their love, honesty, and understanding — they aren’t alone.” George Wundsam via Word Is Bond
