"It sort of evolved organically," the 31 year-old Deacon says of his live shows. "When I first started, my whole goal was to get people to dance by the end of the set -which was a success -though it took me a while to figure out how to get people to feel comfortable, and to lose their inhibitions in a place that was very uncomfortable, like an empty room."
