A veteran of the New York and Baltimore music scenes, Miyuki Furtado
continues to branch out musically with his latest work as psych-folk
explorer, Divining Rod.
Multi-instrumentalist, Furtado, creates a dense sonic collage of frenzied drums & explosive guitar. Songs steeped in 60's British Folk & 70s US folk rock are fused with psych drones resulting in a heady mix of melodic songwriting and left turn experimental arrangements.
The band features fellow collaborators David Koslowski (Guitar) and Shirlé Hale (Bass/Vocals) of indie rock giants, Small Apartments as well as Parker Reilly (Keyboards, Hammond Organ) and Jefrey Brown (Guitar, Saxophone) of Gospel of Mars, Evolutionary Jass Band and Jackie O.
Other collaborators include guitarist, Rob Girardi (engineer of benchmark Beach House,
Double Dagger & Celebration albums), as well as Eric Kaye (Bazouki, Mandolin, Bass)
A revolving cast of friends that include members past and present of
Dead Sands, VHS or BETA, Amy Lettis, Trail of Dead, Fergus & Geronimo
and Celebration also make occasional live appearances.
Miyuki was also a member of The Rogers Sisters and Midnight Masses and
many other eclectic groups.
