About Ferris & Sylvester
Ferris & Sylvester are a force to be reckoned with. They are honest and unashamed, bold and unapologetic. With clear references in their catchy setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, the British duo sit somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit.
Archie Sylvester’s voice, redolent of a grittier Lowell George, is warm and powerful yet bruised around the edges.
His fidelity is the keystone that emboldens Issy Ferris with the freedom to explore the emotions in her voice – at times she shreds her declarations like a twisted Janis Joplin, at others she exploses a bitter fragility reminiscent of Joni Mitchell.
The pair met three years ago in London's blues joint, Spiritual Bar, and have since won over the nation with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. Ferris & Sylvester released their Made in Streatham EP in 2018, which they recorded and self-produced in their South London flat.
After a monumental year of touring in 2018 and sharing the stage the likes of Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, George Ezra and Jade Bird, they have evolved their live set in a distinct and unique combination of Americana, blues and rock'n' roll.
This year, they sold out their debut headline tour, played 12 shows at SXSW, recorded at Maida Vale Studios and played their first Glastonbury. With their eyes fixed on their debut album and their 20-date headline tour around the corner, Ferris & Sylvester have expanded their sound into deeper and darker places.
