Raf Deza (solo)
Raf Deza is a San Diego based Songwriter, Producer, Director and Performer who can usually be found playing with his band The Avenue at local venues like The Balboa, Soda Bar, Quartyard, The Casbah, etc and a variety of community events, fundraisers and spaces.
Years of performing in coffee shops, open mics, house shows, and venues, etc have helped him develop and explore dynamics in unique ways and make the most of the arrangements available to him while tailoring the auditory and narrative experience to the aesthetics and vibe of the setting.
He has a fond appreciation for his roots and succeeds in channeling them while continuing to explore folk, rock, alt-country, soul, blues and a growing repertoire of references to continue to develop and explore new territory.
Subtle references to his Influences (Ryan Adams, Dawes, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Jack White, The Black Keys, Tom Petty, Delta Spirit, The Grateful Dead) are faintly insinuated in his music and he has a back catalogue of originals and covers to accommodate a variety of settings and events.
