Ferris & Sylvester

Ferris & Sylvester

Ferris & Sylvester are a force to be reckoned with, a live act impossible to ignore. With clear references in their setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, the duo sit between Jack White and First Aid Kit.

The pair met three years ago & have since won over the nation with their growing live presence & songwriting. The duo released their ‘Made In Streatham’ EP (2018), which they recorded and self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label the EP has clocked up millions of streams on Spotify & received widespread praise across the board - ‘A masterpiece of Brit Folk’ - MOJO Magazine.

After a monumental year of touring & sharing the stage with Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, George Ezra and Jade Bird, Ferris & Sylvester have evolved their live set into a distinct & unique combination of Americana, Blues & Rock n Roll. This year, they sold out their debut headline tour, played 12 shows at SXSW, recorded at Maida Vale Studios & played their first Glastonbury. With their eyes fixed on their debut album & their 20 date headline tour around the corner, the duo have expanded their sound into deeper & darker places.
