Killer Deluxe is the throwback brain child of Andy Waldeck and Chris Reardon.
This dynamic duo of multi-instrumentalists and singer/songwriters has been producing and songwriting together since the late 90’s when their groundbreaking modern rock quartet, Earth To Andy was lighting up stages around the country. Earth To Andy toured nationally with Stone Temple Pilots, Live, Tonic and many more in an effort to promote their critically acclaimed record, “Chronicle Kings” on Warner Brothers boutique label, Giant Records.
Following Earth To Andy, the duo found a steady flow of songwriting work together, landing notable cuts with artists such as Daughtry and David Cook, to name a few. While enjoying the rewards of writing for established artists, these two had something new in the works.
KILLER DELUXE was born from retro-soul songs the duo had initially penned for other artists but then formed into a cohesive collection of their own. First came the album, and once that was completed, it was obvious that the duo’s signature production warranted its own entity as well. Again, KILLER DELUXE.
A management deal was secured with JLS Artist Management based on the strength and unique quality of the songwriting and powerful vintage-style production. JLS immediately paired KILLER DELUXE with two-time TONY nominee and American Idol standout, Constantine Maroulis for his new album project.
KILLER DELUXE’s self-titled album was released in February of 2016 and has been blowing minds since it dropped. On the strength of their lead single, “Tomorrow Is Yesterday” the record has drawn raves for it’s tasteful blend of rock and soul, driven by undeniable pop hooks. Dual lead vocal duties are handled by Chris and Andy in the same “trading lines” style employed by Sam and Dave on their classic soul hits from the ’60’s.
You can catch Killer DeLuxe live with their powerful 7 piece backing band, complete with horn section and matching silver sparkle drums and instruments. The show is non stop energy with a tight, funky Motown groove that you won’t soon forget.
