STREAKING IN TONGUES are an experimental father/son duo from the tiny village of Otisville, Michigan. The multi-instrumentalists, father Ronnie Ferguson and his 11-year-old son Elliott, are known for their genre-melding albums, multimedia concerts, and creative music videos. Life Support, their second album, was selected as one of the best albums of 2016 by Spirit You All, garnering comparisons to Elliott Smith, Daniel Johnston, Sufjan Stevens, and Mount Eerie. Their new album Kindergarten Prayers combines the diaristic intimacy of the aforementioned singer-songwriters with an equal mix of sprawling, homespun experimentation reminiscent of The Flaming Lips and Bright Eyes. In addition to recording albums and making music videos, the two are heavily involved in other creative projects. Ronnie, long prolific in theatre as a playwright/director/actor and score composer, will see the publication of his first book of poetry, Selfies, later this year through Harvard Square Press. Elliott, a visual artist, recently had his first solo art exhibition entitled “Friends I Built”, which featured 55 of his mixed media creations. STREAKING IN TONGUES will be touring sporadically throughout 2018 and 2019 while they finish recording the follow-up to Kindergarten Prayers.
