Ferris & Sylvester step out of support scene for first UK headline gigs

Critically acclaimed duo Ferris & Sylvester have shared a stage with some of the greats, including midlands rock legend Robert Plant.

Despite an impressive collection of support slots, which also includes gig with Eric Clapton and George Ezra, the pair are only now setting out on their own UK tour.

Speaking last year when the tour was announced they said: “”It feels so surreal to be announcing our first UK/IRE headline tour. 

“We’ve done over a hundred shows this year across the UK and Europe, shared the stage with our heroes and met so many brilliant people. 

“And now we get to do our own tour. We cannot wait for the new year, we have so much we want to share.”

The duo recently released their new single Burning River, first taste of an exciting new project inspired by their recent writing trips to Iceland. 

Produced by Michael Rendall (Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Echo & The Bunnymen), Burning River pulls together Icelandic chants, captivating percussion, blues guitars and the pair’s unmistakable harmonies. 

The result finds Ferris & Sylvester expanding their sound into something that is both their most raw and heartfelt yet.

The track has clocked up well over 300,000 streams on Spotify and its release has led them to receive continued support.

Rolling Stone described the single as: “A rich and fully realised sound that leaves you pining for a full length.”

Ferris & Sylvester will be live at Birmingham’s Cuban Embassy on Thursday February 7.
