CANCELLED - Ferris & Sylvester

Tickets On Sale Thurs, July 30th @ 10am!

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. There’s a touch of Derek Trucks in Archie’s gritty slide and dark, broken tones. 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 exposes a bitter fragility reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. As a live act, they are impossible to ignore. The pair met three years ago in London’s best-kept-secret blues joint, Spiritual Bar and have since won over the nation with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. Obsessed with getting their music out there and with next to no team or budget, the duo released their ‘Made In Streatham’ EP (Feb 2018), which they recorded and self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label ‘Archtop Records’, the EP has clocked up millions of streams on Spotify, rose to No.1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart and received widespread praise across the board – ‘A masterpiece of Brit Folk’ – MOJO Magazine. After a monumental year of touring in 2018 and sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, George Ezra and Jade Bird, Ferris & Sylvester have evolved their live set into 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, the duo have expanded their sound into deeper and darker places.
