About Demi the Daredevil:
Standing out with creepy theatrics, intricate arrangements, and deep lyrics, fans describe Austin,Texas-based band Demi the Daredevil as “raw, relatable, and also inspirational, empowering and calming.” Demi the Daredevil, an energetic duo from Austin, TX featuring Jeff Azar on keys and vocals and Tyler Gescheidle behind the drum-kit, draws on the widest variety of influences. Soft Rock, Emo Punk, Classical and Show tune influences to name a few.
Jeff, who started as the drummer of Demi the Daredevil, was forced to be a frontman when lead singer and founder Jovan Ortiz passed away. After a long tumultuous journey of universities, mental hospitals, band members, and living in attics and teepees, Jeff realized that he could write the songs himself. He released a solo EP called “Secret Schizoid” in October 2016. This quickly garnered a dedicated fanbase around the world.
Since then he has been releasing singles periodically, working with Kevin Butler (Blue October) and Sean O’Keefe(Fall Out Boy) in mixing his songs. He was recently awarded the Runner Up placement at “Song of the Year Competition,”(judged by icons such as Dave Grohl and Gwen Stefani) as well as being selected to play at Springboard Music Festival out of 4,000 applicants and completing a US Tour.
In June of 2019, Tyler Gescheidle (Tyler G Drumming) joined the band as a full time member bringing charisma, finesse, and a dynamic style both to the live performances and new records. Together, Jeff and Tyler provide an engagement of energy and inclusiveness to fans of their music on and off the stage. Demi the Daredevil’s unique mix of bright alternative rock and darkly theatrical music provides a unique listening experience; one that you’ve never heard before.
