Ferris & Sylvester
Ferris & Sylvester - I Dare You

Ferris & Sylvester are a force to be reckoned with. They are bold & unapologetic. With clear references in their catchy setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier tones, the British duo sit somewhere between Jack White & First Aid Kit.
The pair met 4 years ago in London’s blues joint, Spiritual Bar & have since won over crowds across Europe & the US with their ever-growing live presence. Eager to get music out there, they released their ‘Made In Streatham’ EP, recorded & self-produced in their London flat. F&S have since released singles including 'Sickness' & 'Flying Visit' which range from the most intimate to the most enraged declarations of the human condition. Their timeless songwriting is impossible to ignore.
After a monumental 18 months of touring & sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, George Ezra & Jade Bird, F&S have evolved their sound into a distinct mix of Americana, Blues & Rock n Roll.
With their eyes fixed on their debut album, the duo continue to expand their sound into deeper & darker places.
