SON OF DAVE
Son of Dave is an international cult bluesman with an army of devoted fans from all walks of life. Playing everything from the everyman’s blues bar to private parties of industry tycoons, Benjamin Darvill is a one-man harmonica and beat-box genius. Half a century after getting his start in the biker bars of Winnipeg, Darvill is known for his outstanding live shows, provocative audience banter, and contributions to notable television and film soundtracks, including AMC’s Breaking Bad, Preacher, and a Robin Williams film. From his origins in Canada’s “Arctic Chicago,” playing as a member of Crash Test Dummies, Darvill has released seven solo albums and performed over a thousand concerts on five continents. Supporting artists as diverse as Iggy and The Stooges, Grace Jones, Heavy Trash, UB40, Supergrass, and the Yardbirds, Darvill shows no signs of slowing down. His current album, Explosive Hits, is a collection of covers ranging from Daft Punk to Lead Belly, all put through his funky sausage machine.
