Heymoonshaker - "Ten Letter Word" | Music 2014 | SXSW

February 13, 2014
"A well balanced mix of smiles, verbal sparring and an impressive performance convey deep emotions. Dazzling!" Rolling Stone Fr Heymoonshaker are the unlikely pairing of two art forms that are decades apart; Grit-your-teeth, raw, blues guitar and expansive, heart-pounding beatboxing. Urbanizing blues music now for nearly 2 years, Andy Balcon and Dave Crowe are extremely talented at their craft but what impresses most and has made their commitment to Beatbox Blues so successful is the indescribable chemistry these two have on stage. The musical sparring of Crowe's powerful beats versus Andy's possessed vocals forge together like two pieces of iron, creating an inspired piece of creativity and originality. Meeting as street performers in New Zealand in 2009, Andy and Crowe began fusing their interests in the blues and electronic bass music in front of the passing crowds of the south island. After separating to take different travelling routes, the boys re-met back in the Northern hemisphere in Sweden where they began taking their jams to the stage. As their show developed and their touring routes became more extensive, so too did their sound mixing features from heavy rock & roll, roots music and dubstep. But their love and appreciation for the blues is something that stays true throughout their writing and the driving force behind their music. Taking huge inspiration from the likes of Led Zeppelin and Muddy Waters, Heymoonshaker's big riffs, loud rhythms and howling vocals have impressed in small intimate basement venues to festival main stages.
