Kurt Deimer is a musician and actor from Cincinnati, Ohio. Following three decades of building various businesses, Deimer would make his musical debut at the end of the 2010s. The singer contributed vocals to demos his friend had made, and his persistence eventually led him to two crucial connections – his guitarist Phil X, and manager Andy Gould (Rob Zombie, Linkin Park, et al). In addition to tours alongside big name acts like Yngwie Malmsteen, Tesla, and Drowning Pool, Deimer’s 2021 debut EP, Work Hard, Rock Hard, is especially worthy of note, featuring a guest spot by Queensryche singer Geof Tate and production by Grammy Award-winning engineer Chris Lord-Alge. Deimer and his bandmates have since recorded dozens of original songs, which he will include as part of his follow-up double album next year.
In the meantime, Deimer released his latest single from this new batch of songs, “Doom,” last Friday, and is set to tour on select dates with Skid Row and Buckcherry. I caught up with Deimer this afternoon to discuss his formative years as a musician, the life he had built away from music, and the close bonds he’d solidify that coincided with both his return to music and forays in acting.
In addition, check out the music video for his latest single “Doom”:
