Deaf Poets
Deaf Poets
Deaf Poets are an American garage/alternative rock duo formed in Miami Beach, FL. The band consists of Sean Wouters (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Nico Espinosa (Vocals/Percussion). Their music is the embodiment of hard-hitting drums with distortion-soaked guitars.

Wouters' childhood influences, such as Jimmy Page and Kurt Cobain, led the duo to combine elements of 70s rock, with the aggressiveness of 80's punk, and an added aspect of 90s grunge to define their sound. The duo met in elementary school; and during their high school years, they went through a long process of musical experimentation, which ultimately led to the founding of Deaf Poets.

The duo cemented their place in the South Florida indie scene by performing at numerous music venues across the city such as, Churchill's, Bardot, Gramps and Grand Central ultimately earning the title, “Best Band of Miami” in 2014 as well as being apart of the, “20 Most Influential People of Miami” award in 2015, by The Miami New Times.

Their single, “Degenerate Mind”, from their debut album “4150” was selected to be a part of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 video game soundtrack and was also featured in Classic Rock Magazine's compilation CD in 2014.

Deaf Poets have become regulars at iiiPoints music festival, performing for four years in a row, alongside acts like Mac Demarco, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Diiv and Thievery Corporation. In 2015, Deaf Poets supported the indie dance duo, Matt and Kim, throughout their Florida tour dates. They have also shared the stage with Best Coast,The Naked and Famous, Andy Rourke, The Ettes, Pujol, Jennie Vee (Courtney Love), Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, and The Peach Kings.
