Standing out with his creepy theatrics, intricate arrangements, and hyper-introspective lyrics, fans describe Austin,Texas-based band Demi the Daredevil A.K.A. Jeff Azar as “raw, relatable, and also inspirational and fun.”
Jeff, who started as the drummer of Demi the Daredevil, was forced to be a frontman when lead singer and founder Jovan Ortiz passed away. After a long tumultuous journey of universities, mental hospitals, band members, and living in attics and teepees, Jeff released a solo EP called “Secret Schizoid” in October 2016. This quickly garnered a dedicated fanbase around the world.

He was recently awarded the Runner Up placement at “Song of the Year Competition,”(judged by icons such as Dave Grohl and Gwen Stefani) as well as being selected to play at Springboard Music Festival out of 4,000 applicants and completing a US Tour.

Demi fans submitted be featured in the "Lone Lady" music video. The song was initially made while reminiscing about watching my mom go through a rough patch when my dad left the household. And it ended up becoming a broader suicide prevention song. If you're hurting right now, you're not alone.
