Deer Park Avenue: The Debut Album

What People Are Saying

This band are fantastic…they make an awesome racket.”

Aaron Phillips, Amazing Radio


California (Close My Eyes) reminds us of exciting 00s inspired rock that will leave you wanting to digest the entire album after first listen. The track proves these sisters have what it takes to emerge successful alongside other talented female led bands like Sleater-Kinney.”

The Revue


A highly infectious pop-punk track about the darker side of California.”



Deer Park Avenue is a rock band.

Sarah and Stephanie Snyder are sisters who started out as journalists and now are musicians, music bloggers, and voting members of the Recording Academy (GRAMMYs).

Deer Park Avenue was the winner of Hard Rock Rising (Washington, D.C.) battle of the bands. Their debut EP Stop & Go has been nominated in many independent music awards and has been played on radio and online radio in the U.S. and overseas.

Their self-titled debut album was released worldwide on June 17, 2016, after a PledgeMusic campaign that let fans go behind the scenes of the making of the new album. DPA worked with renowned producer and bassist Matt Bissonette, known for his work with Elton John, Brian Wilson, Rick Springfield, Don Henley, and many others. Their track “Countdown” features Grammy Award-winning drummer Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth, Santana, Ringo Starr), playing double drums with Stephanie. For this album, DPA live tracked the rhythm section, creating a sound that draws from the high energy of their live shows. Without the use of autotune or other digital manipulation, this album is a raw and colourful debut.

Deer Park Avenue have been based in Sacramento, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and are currently in Munich, Germany.

The band is proud to endorse Audix Microphones, Epiphone, Dixon Drums, TRX Cymbals, KickPort, Reference Cables, and Sonas Denim. They are also currently working on acoustic videos, with special thanks to Audix, Epiphone, Tascam, and LP for their generosity in providing awesome gear.
