Ferris & Sylvester

"The British duo defies genre definition. Their music is unapologetically empathetic, a force to be reckoned with regardless of subject matter or scope.” ATWOOD MAGAZINE

Ferris & Sylvester are songwriters. With clear references in their catchy setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, the duo sit somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit.

The pair met five years ago in London’s best-kept-secret blues joint, Spiritual Bar and have since won over audiences across Europe and the US with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. Obsessed with getting their music out there, the duo released their ‘Made In Streatham’ EP in 2018 which they recorded and self-produced in their South London flat. The duo have since released a collection of more expansive singles including 'Sickness' and '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 2 years of touring, including their debut Glastonbury + SXSW, and sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, George Ezra and Jade Bird, Ferris & Sylvester have evolved their live sound into a distinct combination of Americana, Blues and Rock n Roll. In October 2020, the duo released their brand new EP ‘I Should Be On A Train’, earning them a spot in BBC Introducing’s Best of 2020 list and a nomination for UK Song of The Year at The UK Americana Awards. With their eyes fixed on their debut album, the duo continue to expand their sound into deeper and darker places.
