Bio

Virginia native, Dane Ferguson, creates music shaped by growing up in a small town, traveling from city to city, and chasing down songs with not much other than his ambition, and an acoustic guitar. Much of his time growing up was spent listening to the sounds of old vinyl records bounce around the walls of his childhood home. His father, a drummer. His mother, a pianist. Dane was surrounded by music his entire life, and by age 4, he was teaching himself to play the piano. By high school, he'd learned to play guitar, drums, and bass. That soon developed into writing and producing records in his bedroom, walls lined with egg-crates and blankets. He spent 7 years in Richmond, Virginia writing and producing music, while performing at house shows and bar gigs. Currently, he resides in Los Angeles, California where he works, writes, and makes music in his apartment/studio. Dane is also one of four members in the group Built To Fade. They released their debut album, "To Dust",  in late 2013, and are in the final stages of production on their second record. On May 12th, 2018, Dane put out his second self-produced solo EP, entitled "Cicada", which can be found on all music platforms.
