Deer Park Ranger is the solo project of Trevor Humphrey. He formed the project in Oakland California in mid 2016 and found his sound as he began pairing Rhodes Piano with delayed guitars, and electronics. Inspired by post-rock influences Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai, he layers simple and beautiful melodies that build into powerful crescendos.
While studying music in college, Trevor found his passion for music theory and composition. He formed Deer Park Ranger in mid 2016 after acquiring a Rhodes MK1 electric piano. He has been obsessed with the Rhodes sound for years, and loves its wide tonal range. As he became more intimately familiar with the dynamics of the instrument, he began adding on various effects to get the perfect sound that would pair beautifully with delay guitars and electronics. This new sound excites him and inspires him to build the delicate and powerful pieces of instrumental rock.
