The True Deceivers have been developing their own blend of rootsy folk rock/Americana since their formation in 2003.
Former Blazing Homesteads Nick Bliss (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, vocals), Dee Coley (bass) and the late and sadly missed Mark Mitchell (fiddle) were joined by former Plenty frontman Graham Firth (vocals, guitar) and Jamie Legg (drums) and have since become favourites on Surrey music scene and regulars at festivals including Guilfest, Haslemere and Bearded Theory.
From 2012 the True Deceivers reverted to their full electric line-up, which they had temporarily swapped for a more stripped-down acoustic sound following Mark’s untimely death in 2009. 2012 also saw the long-awaited release of the band’s second album, Hell or High Water, which builds on the critically-acclaimed song writing and vocal harmonies of their 2007 debut Lies We Have Told.
Chris "Spud" Edwards joined the band on fiddle at the start of 2013
