Dwayne Shivers

Dwayne Shivers is an indie blues duo, fronted by songwriter Micah Dalton. After over 10 years of touring, six releases, and critical acclaim as a genre bending soul folkster, Dalton noticed that certain songs and sounds hidden in his recordings resonated both live and on tape with fans in a more meaningful way. Songs with soulful biblical motifs, bible belt blues, and more intentional lyricism along with warm, uncompromising sonic tones, drew a more polarizing response from listeners. Raised a preacher’s son, Dalton says. “I wasn’t having a good time with the solo songwriter thing as much anymore. I got so lost in the shadows of what I didn’t want to do, that it felt like I need to re-name the act in order to be myself. Micah Dalton, as an artist, meant something that I didn’t want to perpetuate anymore – the whole thing is like a Trojan horse to get back into myself.”
