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 pair sit somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit.
The pair met three years ago and have since won over the nation with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting, selling out their debut headline UK tour. In 2018, the duo released their highly anticipated EP ‘Made In Streatham’ which they self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label ‘Archtop Records’, the EP has clocked up millions of streams and received widespread praise across the board.
With their eyes fixed on their debut album, the duo have expanded their sound into deeper and darker places. Ferris & Sylvester uncover the depths of human relationships in their writing and continue forward as proudly independent songwriters and performers.
Chance McCoy is a Grammy Award winning Indie Folk musician from West Virginia.
It can be scary to step away from something that’s been so successful, says Chance McCoy, but it’s important to follow your passion. I really believe in the music that I’m making right now, so it feels like the right time for me as an artist to get off the main road and explore the path less trodden.
A virtuoso fiddler, guitarist, and banjo player, McCoy is best known as a member of GRAMMY-winning Americana powerhouse Old Crow Medicine Show, but ‘Wander Wide,’ his debut solo album, reveals a remarkable depth and versatility far beyond anything we’ve heard from him yet. Captivating in its cross of the traditional and the progressive, the record shows little regard for the conventional boundaries of genre and decade, blending old-school bluegrass melodies with modern rock and roll arrangements and rich, atmospheric production.
