Save Yourself - Ferris & Sylvester
Our LCM featured artists today Ferris & Sylvester are a London based Country/Americana/Folk duo made up of Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester. The two first met as solo musicians in London’s vibrant music scene and started writing together. In early 2016, Issy and Archie's thoughtfully crafted song writing 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 New York's Greenwich Village such as Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel, the duo also sit firmly among 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 sound of their own. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is one of the beautiful lead singles 'Save Yourself' from their 'The Yellow Line' EP released in June.
‘We were both part of the same music scene in Camden until eventually we met and started doing some writing together. Since then, we’ve spent most of our days locked away in Archie’s bedroom, writing and recording. Early last year, we took our scruffy demos and unpolished material over to see legendary producer Martin ‘Youth’ Glover and stumbled through a few new songs in his front room. A few months later, we were recording our debut EP with Youth and his amazing team in his studio in Sierra Nevada. It’s been a great year – touring Ireland, releasing our EP, and working with some incredible people.’
