Daveit Ferris is obsessive about writing music. His latest project, 365 Sparks, surely proves this to be the case. The project will see the release of 365 original songs throughout the 2015 year. The 29-year old has built up an impressive body of work in the last decade that includes eight Poetry Books and a scattering of modern websites/ideas. Music is where the heart is though. Daveit came to the public attention via his band [Mascara Story] in which he was the Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter. The band won Kerrang! Magazines 'Unsigned band of the year' in 2005; which ultimately propelled them into the public consciousness. Two successful EPs followed before an untimely break up toward the end of 2005. These days, Daveit records most of his music under his own name and plans to take music from the aforementioned 365 Sparks project out on the road once the project finishes at the end of the year.
