Ferris & Sylvester are a London based duo made up of Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester. The two met as solo musicians, battling through the carnage that is London’s vibrant music scene and started writing together. In early 2016, Ferris & Sylvester’s thoughtfully crafted song writing caught the ear of legendary producer Youth (Paul McCartney/The Verve/ Crowded House). The pair recorded their first record ‘The Yellow Line EP’ with Youth in his Space Mountain Studios, Spain. Ferris & Sylvester are now promoting their upcoming EP 'Made In Streatham' which was written and recorded in their South London flat. With clear references in their catchy folk setup to the mid-60s sounds of NYC’s Greenwich Village, the duo also sit firmly amongst contemporaries like Laura Marling and Shovels and Rope. Their clever combination of Archie’s blues influence and Issy’s soft folk tone has created a distinctive genre of their own.
