English beatbox blues duo Heymoonshaker comprises Dave Crowe (beatbox) and Andy Balcon (voice/guitar). They met in New Zealand 3 years ago as touring street performers and have since developed their mutual interests.
Believing in constant travel, they’ve taken their stage show around the world to Sweden, Australia, Switzerland, New Zealand, Germany, France and Italy. During last summers tour they visited Beach Break Live, Greenman Festival, Shambala, Wilderness and Kendal Calling in the UK.
Their debut EP Shakerism, a nine track recording, is released on 18th March, 2013. It was recorded at Wetlab studio’s with music maestro Viktor Benzen.
Heymoonshaker fuse urban sounds and deep bass with blues and rock and roll rhythms. Andy’s voice howls and growls like an enraged wolf. They’ve a raw, fresh energy and over 13 million YouTube viewers have now watched their nomadic busking. They’ve created something a bit different through a personal reinvention of the blues and should be praised for their adventurousness, though they’re possibly a bit too experimental for some peoples tastes.
