The Merriweather Deer is a product of unoccupied time and access to the
technology of home studio-recording these days. Birthed by guitarist -
Ephraim Bano (The lovesong/ whence he came), he started writing songs in
2006 and sent them to his friend and keyboardist, Gideon So (Noughts
and Exes) as a side project. Hoping that someday the songs would face
the light of day and be performed live, he recently enlisted good
friends – Lee Yat Ding (The Lovesong/Take Bad from the Good), Don Cruz
(Audiotraffic) and Glenn Bogador (Shepherd the Weak/Audiotraffic), who
all happened to be familiar faces in the HK music scene circuit to join
in the ride.
Drawing heavy influences from the timeless sounds of
groups such as: The Smiths, U2 and The Beatles, to more recent bands
like Broken Social Scene, Interpol, M83, etc – they shape melody based,
guitar driven songs that are accessible to any listener.
Merriweather Deer consists of: Ephraim Bano - vocals/guitar, Gideon So -
keys/melodica, Don Cruz – guitar, Glenn Bogador – bass and Lee Yat Ding
