Deadsoul Tribe was founded in 2000 by Devon Graves (Buddy Lackey), former vocalist of Psychotic Waltz. A year later the debut album Deadsoul Tribe was released and proved to be a success with former Psychotic Waltz fans and beyond.
Graves is the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose music is both philosophical and challenging. “Everything I write has a message, an approach to poetry,” he says. “It’s the major function of poetry not to provide answers, but to raise questions - to be thought provoking and to create space for individual interpretations.”
Together with drummer Adel Moustafa, who also plays the drums on the records, the guitarist Roland `Rollz` Kerschbaumer and bass player Roland Ivenz, Deadsoul Tribe is known for their stirring stage performance.
