Karl Deeter

A native of Los Angeles Karl Deeter moved to Ireland as a child & had been going back and forth until the early 2000’s when he settled down in Ireland.
He started playing late, taking up music in his mid-teens but found that he had a passion for song-writing.
His debut album 'Cracked Up' has been described as ‘Sunsoaked, dusty, free-wheeling Americana’ (Sunday Business Post) and got 4 out of 5 stars when reviewed by The Sun which said his album had songs (whose) ‘sounds, styles and lyrical flows are like separate gems in a crown’. The 2nd album is ‘New Old Songs’ was recorded in 2007 but never released.
You’ll find the influences in his sound from Johnny Cash to Johnny Rotten, often with a quick and witty delivery of well-crafted lyrics.
His music career has primarily been on the gig and festival circuit in the US (main in Chicago and hinterlands) and in more recent times in Ireland (Electric Picnic and most of the Bluegrass festivals) and the UK where he regularly features on acoustic guitar and upright bass in different bands (Tin Box Company, Louisiana 6 and others).
Nowadays apart from recording his own music he is also well known in Ireland as a financial commentator, he has written several books, the most recent ‘This book is worth €25,000’ entered the non-fiction charts at number one its first week. He writes on economic and property matters for several national newspapers and is also a regular on radio and television in Ireland.
