Ferris & Sylvester
After writing hundreds of songs together, Ferris & Sylvester have evolved their sound into a distinct combination of Blues, Americana and Rock n Roll, sitting them somewhere between Alabama Shakes, Jack White and First Aid Kit.
The British duo's debut album ‘Superhuman’ is set for release 11-Mar-22. The 12 track album - recorded in Seattle USA with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers), and Cornwall UK with Michael Rendall (The Orb) - holds 10 never before heard songs and takes the listener on a journey through the duo’s world where genres intertwine and emotions are stripped down to the core.
Since meeting as solo musicians, F&S have released a collection of singles and EPs, a lot of which they recorded in their South London flat. Their raw and honest songwriting about their life together has taken them around the world, playing over a hundred shows a year including Glastonbury and Americanafest. They have shared the stage with the likes of Robert Plant, George Ezra and Jade Bird, and have built a loyal and mighty following.
With their album ready for lift off, the duo enters this era with a renewed sense of confidence, self-knowledge and drive.
