A veteran of the New York and Baltimore music scenes, Miyuki Furtado continues to branch out musically with his latest work as psych-drone explorer, Divining Rod.
The project is starting to make waves with intimate recordings as well as live performances that crackle with all out feedback drenched meditations.
Multi-instrumentalist, Furtado, creates dense sonic collages and loops combined with his own frenzied drum work and explosive guitar playing. His recorded work displays simpler, more rustic sounds steeped in the 60's British Folk of Sandy Denny, Pentangle and Bert Jansch. Within this duality lies the center of Divining Rod's sound.
The band also features keyboardist, Parker Reilly as well as guitarist/saxophonist, Jefrey Brown of Gospel of Mars, Evolutionary Jass Band and Jackie O' Motherfucker.
Divining Rod's current collaborators include a trio of Baltimore luminaries: guitarist, Rob Girardi (engineer of benchmark Beach House, Double Dagger & Celebration albums), as well as guitarist David Koslowski and bassist and vocalist Shirlé Hale of indie rock giants, Small Apartments.
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.
