Daveit Ferris is an Irish Songwriter, Musician, Producer and Poet. In 2005, the band he formed and fronted, Mascara Story, won Kerrang! Magazines ‘Unsigned Band of the Year’ despite competition from over 3,000 other UK-based bands. As a result, the band played Download Festival twice that year and saw their debut single ‘This is Not a Bruise’ reach #10 on the rock charts. Multiple UK tours ensued before the band called it a day later the same year amid personal differences.
