Erik Deutsch

One could easily imagine that Erik Deutsch lives inside a piano. Thus it's no surprise that some of the worlds most demanding performers request Erik for their keyboard accompaniment. If they're lucky, they can catch him in the rare moments when he's not leading his own group through a truly modernist take on the jazz tradition.

Having first come to prominence as a member of the funk-jazz collective Fat Mama (with drummer Joe Russo), Erik has taken his talents across the globe to play with some of the finest musicians alive. Born in Washington D.C. but currently living in Brooklyn, NY, Erik exists in many musical worlds, touring and recording with pop artists like Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash, Citizen Cope, Shooter Jennings, Alice Smith, Antony and the Johnsons, Phillip Phillips, Joey Arias, Devotchka, and Erin McKeown; or with jazz artists like Charlie Hunter, Theo Bleckmann, Ben Allison, Scott Amendola, Trevor Dunn, Steven Bernstein, Ellery Eskelin, Jim Campilongo, Nels Cline, Jenny Scheinman, Allison Miller, Todd Sickafoose, and Art Lande.
