Dave Ferguson – “Like Me” [VIDEO]

Dave Ferguson

 

One-man band Dave Ferguson draws on an eclectic musical background to create unique loops.  By layering beat boxing, harmonica and his voice Ferguson creates layers of moving melodies that carry you away.  According to Ferguson, “What I’m doing now is quite different not only due to its uniqueness because of the whole one-man looping thing, but also because I’m doing mostly original songs that aren’t necessarily genre specific. Although there are strong undercurrents of Blues & Americana you’ll find elements of everything from Trance, Dub, Dance, Hip- Hop, Country, Bluegrass etc thrown in there…” He grew up in Cape Town, but has also lived in Nashville and London.  Check out the video of Like Me at the Melting Pot in Muizenburg, South Africa.

Eyes Like Mirrors

Eyes Like Mirrors formed as a trio in Johannesburg in 2008, creating their own blend of post rock music.  Focusing on guitar driven instrumentals, the band was inspired by acts such as Explosions in The Sky, Mono and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.  In 2010 Eyes Like Mirrors expanded to include Ben Rausch who used a keytar to trigger and manipulate visuals during live performances.  Check out their track Pastel, or if you’re in South Africa their EP Crusades is in stores now!
