Dwayne Shivers is a progressive classic folk duo, fronted by songwriter Micah Dalton and producer / songwriter Anthony Aparo. In early 2016, they joined forces to finish the debut Dwayne Shivers LP, "Buffered & Blest, along with Brooklyn-based producer Jeremy McDonald (Kevin Garrett, Welcome Wagon) and mixing engineer Jason Kingsland (Belle & Sebastian, Deerhunter, Iron & Wine).
"Buffered and Blest is an exploration of the isolation and changing definition of love and community in the internet age. As Dwayne Shivers weave tales of love, loss, and longing, they confront the more intricate mysteries of existence without losing their sense of humor. Often referred to as "funhouse folk," the band have an ability to transform simple melodies into unexpected passages which distort reality and expose the overstimulation inherent to everyday life. Misty Morning Dew may be Dwayne Shivers at their most polished, but it still pulses with the playful energy and emotional depth for which the band is known." - Russell Rockwell
"Buffered & Blest" is slated for a 2018 release.
