While other six year olds were developing their hand- and foot-eye coordination with tag andkickball, Jeff Deyo cultivated his behind 88 ivory keys. Don’t pity his childhood – Deyo didn’tforsake the trees and outdoor adventures of Denver, CO, but it took little convincing of thisprecocious toddler from his mother to study classical piano. The kid with the big smilecontinued to practice and began departing from the notes on the page to his own creations atthe age of eight. Taking the time-honored “Heart and Soul” (most commonly known as thetheme song from the movie BIG, where Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia played the foot piano),Deyo rearranged the notes to make it his own, and creative exploration in song was birthed.
Today, Deyo is known internationally as the original lead singer of the Dove Award-winninggroup Sonicflood. Jeff is the voice behind classic worship songs like “I Could Sing of YourLove Forever,” “In the Secret,” and “My Refuge”. As Sonicflood’s lead singer, primarysongwriter and co-producer, Deyo saw the band’s gold certified, self-titled debut (1999) and itsGrammy-nominated follow-up, Sonicpraise (2001), reach combined sales of over one million.
Deyo followed up these accomplishments by releasing four acclaimed worship recordings“Saturate”, “Light”, “Surrender” (Live), and “Unveil”. Now, with “Moving Mountains”, his fifthand newest worship album (2012), Deyo's music blends pop rock with soulful groove, andstriking melodies with meaningful words in modern congregational expressions such as “WeDelight”, “Rescue Me”, “The Perfection of Beauty” as well as the salient title track.
Deyo is the founder of Worship City Ministries, which is the umbrella under which he creates,serves and participates in a variety of ministries worldwide. From teaching at conferences toleading worship for large and small events, Deyo's music exists to help worshipers deepentheir walk with God by leading them into his transforming presence in both “glory times andcrisis times”.
With a father’s heart, Deyo developed the Pure Worship Institute (PWI) from a vision whichstirred in him back in 2004. After putting together a mini traveling worship conference, thingsculminated in the fall of 2007 when Pastor Sam Hinn of The Gathering Place Church exhortedDeyo to ‘pick up the new mantle of worship and pass it on to the next generation’. It was thenthat Deyo made plans for PWI 2008 where an assembly of singers and musicians would cometogether annually to receive practical and spiritual training. Deyo continues to multiply hisimpact by mentoring and shepherding creative types to be effective leaders in parts of theworld he could personally never reach.
In addition, Deyo now holds the high honor of being a full-time faculty member (as “WorshipArts Specialist, professor”) at North Central University (NCU) in Minneapolis, MN. Heteaches in the classroom, helps grow NCU’s already vibrant music department, recruits newstudents, leads worship, and produces new recordings for some of NCU’s top bands & artists.He is also an honorary pastor at his home church, Celebration Church in Lakeville, MN andhas been married to his college sweetheart, Martha, for 20 years. Together, they have 4beautiful children, Roman, Evan, Channing, and Clara.
