Recently voted "Favorite Band in Salem" in Art Throb magazine's reader's poll, "The Dejas" are a performing duo that produces, records, and performs their unique, melodic, ambient indie pop. The band is comprised of Callie Lipton and Aaron Z. Katz who met at the University of New Hampshire in 2005, felt an immediate connection, and soon began working together in what was to become a highly creative collaboration. Both singer-songwriters, Lipton plays guitar and sings lead vocals. Her voice was recently described in a review written for Boston's radio station WERS as "sultry with a fun edge" and often by others as "warm", "pure" or "universal". Katz was formerly the drummer and singer songwriter for the critically acclaimed national act, Percy Hill. In The Dejas, Katz provides the rhythmic foundation of the band. In 2007, The Dejas won the Spotlight Eye on the Arts: "Alternative Band-of-the-Year Award". Last year The Dejas teamed up with producer/engineer Sean McLaughlin to create their debut album, "Speeding Softly", which soon garnered them music licensing deals with CBS, MTV, and the Lifetime and CW networks. For the last six years, the band has performed in the Boston area and toured the Northeast, playing in a wide variety of venues. Callie and Aaron like to describe their music as a "powerful whisper". Deja fans express that the music has the ability to move them to dance... as well as move them to tears. Reviewer Chris Elliot (Seacoast.com) writes about the "gentle, unforced, seeming inevitability of the songs themselves", songs that stand on their own merit, wonderful melodies that linger and engage, staying with the listener in some profound, enduring way that is both inspiring and somehow re-affirming.
"Qwill is the musical vehicle of singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Ciarmataro. His music layers indie, soul, and roots, on top of lush electronic textures, and rhythms with a heartbeat."
