Formed while its members were students at Arkansas Tech in the Midwestern hamlet of Russellville, the band has gone through several different members before settling in with its current lineup for the past two-and-a-half years. While at school, Blaylock began writing songs he initially envisioned as solo works, but when coupled with an affinity for the indie-rock scene, Deas Vail was born.

Blaylock discovered and embraced the indie rock scene his senior year of high school, eschewing the bluegrass and folk enriched home he grew up in (his sister Hannah fronts bluegrass/country outfit Eden’s Edge). “When we started, it was something we wanted to do because we enjoy music,” Blaylock said. “We write songs because we love songs. They make us happy or explain an experience. That’s why I grab hold of these songs and love them. It’s something we really care about.” Upon the record’s release [All the Houses Look the Same] last spring, the band took on a healthy touring schedule that saw them crisscrossing the country for much of the year.

White Lights is their latest EP release.
