They are songwriters - their hearts and souls put to rhythm.
With clear references in their catchy folk setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, Ferris & Sylvester sit somewhere between Jack White & First Aid Kit. Their clever combination of Sylvester’s blues influence & Ferris’ soul tone has created a distinctive genre of their own.
The London-based pair met just over two years ago and have since won over the capital with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. In 2016, Ferris & Sylvester’s thoughtfully crafted writing caught the ear of legendary producer Youth (Paul McCartney/The Verve/ Crowded House). The pair recorded with Youth in his Space Mountain Studios, Spain.
Earlier this year, F&S released their highly anticipated second EP 'Made In Streatham' which the duo self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label 'Archtop Records', the EP has clocked up over 2 million Spotify streams, rose to No.1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart and received widespread praise across the board.
Currently recording their next project and soaring through a summer packed with live dates, there is plenty more to come from Ferris & Sylvester.
The future is bright.
