Erased Tapes Announce U.S West Coast Tour which will bring Greg Gives Peter Space, Douglas Dare and Rival Consoles through Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
UK record label Erased Tapes celebrates its seventh year of fusing classical and contemporary music with a specialU.S. West Coast Tour, which brings together three very unique artists from their roster.
Peter Broderick will provide the folky vocals and Greg Haines the spacey subs with their collaborative, dub-inspired project Greg Gives Peter Space. Singer-songwriter Douglas Dare combines acoustic instrumentation with glitchy electronic sounds and will be joined by his percussionist and producer Fabian Prynn. Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles will explore atmosphere, space and the power of colour with his analogue setup of the Moog, Prophet and tape delay, and his desire to create a more organic, humanised sound.
The poster artwork was specially commissioned and designed by American relief artist Gregory Euclide, known for his cover art for Bon Iver.

Greg Gives Peter Space is the collaborative work by Portland-based multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick and English composer Greg Haines. It reveals their mutual love for dub music with groovy rhythms, heavy bass and spacey synthesisers.
“We plan on bringing as much of the original gear from the recordings as possible. After years of playing fairly quiet music for an often seated audience, we can’t wait to get on stage and bounce around to some groovy rhythms, heavy bass and spacey synthesizers. Prepare for take off!“ – Peter Broderick
Douglas Dare is a London-based singer-songwriter. Inspired by the likes of Portishead, Elliot Smith and PJ Harvey, Douglas combines rich and haunting vocals with lyrics crafted from his own poems and short prose, a writing style that gives his intimate songs wisdom far beyond his 23 years. His live sound combines acoustic instrumentation including piano and percussion with glitchy electronic elements.
Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles often composes early ideas on piano, violin and guitar, although the end result is much more electronic-laden. As an accomplished sound designer he has repeatedly performed at the Tate, and recently created a bespoke audio-visual performance for Boiler Roomat the V&A. Ryan has also produced remixes for New York-based composer Nico Muhly and UK producer Jon Hopkins, and composes original music for dance, film and television.
