Ferris & Sylvester
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 songwriting caught the ear of legendary producer Youth (Paul McCartney/The Verve/ Crowded House).
The pair recorded their first record ‘The Yellow Line EP’ with Youth in his Space Mountain Studios, Spain. 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 alongside 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. In February 2018 the duo released the ‘Made In Streatham EP’, reaching No.1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter chart and 1 million streams in the first month.
