Ferris & Sylvester

Ferris & Sylvester
The London-based songwriting duo Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester formed in 2017 having played the same venue for six months without performing together and are now being tipped for success. Their style references the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village, with a combination of blues, folk and indie-rock ’n’ roll that has seen them described as somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit.

Ferris & Sylvester are hard at work promoting latest release ‘Sickness’, which introduces the sound of their new project: bigger, darker and more ambitious than before. 2019 began strongly with three sold-out showcases at Eurosonic Festival and showcasing with the BBC at the prestigious SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.

Their momentum has continued to build with a sold-out debut headline tour around the UK and plays on BBC Radio 1 with Huw Stephens. A second headline tour (April/May) is in the diary alongside more singles set for release in the second quarter. In short, there’s a lot, lot more to come from Ferris & Sylvester and we are delighted that HebCelt is part of their continuing story.
