PRESENTED BY WILL SEBASTIAN

'Dreamy, deceptively lovely folk-pop that tickles the ear and softens you up for the thornier sentiments contained therein. Pretty as a California sunset.’ – ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

Ferris & Sylvester are a London based duo made up of Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester. The two met as solo musicians, battling through the carnage that is London’s vibrant music scene and started writing together. In early 2016, Ferris & Sylvester’s thoughtfully crafted song writing caught the ear of legendary producer Youth (Paul McCartney/The Verve/ Crowded House). The pair recorded their first EP ‘The Yellow Line’ with Youth in his Space Mountain Studios, Spain. It was released in June 2017 to widespread praise, most notably from ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE who chose Ferris & Sylvester to head up their 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know: July 2017. 'A rich and fully realised sound that leaves one pining for a full-length / Gorgeously dusky singing voice and immaculate harmonies.' The EP also received national radio attention from BBC R2 and significant support from BBC INTRODUCING as well as coverage in THE INDEPENDENT and ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE.

With clear references in their catchy folk setup to the mid-60s sounds of NYC’s Greenwich Village such as Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel, the duo also sit firmly amongst contemporaries like Laura Marling and Ray Lamontagne. Their clever combination of Archie’s blues influence and Issy’s soft folk tone has created a distinctive genre of their own.
