FERGUS shares debut track ‘You or Nothing’ (rel 17.11.17) via Goldun Egg Records, the first track taken from his debut EP due for release early 2018.
‘You or Nothing’ introduces an artist and songwriter with a unique voice, endless potential and undeniable talent. The track was produced, by Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Shania Twain).
Speaking about the song, FERGUS quotes: ’You or Nothing’ is more of a snapshot than a story. It captures an unknown feeling caught between complex emotions. I like the combination of the simple, clear sounds and the maybe-dark-maybe-sweet lyrics. There’s a holiness to it you can hold up and examine in the light, but you might not like what you find’.
FERGUS’ formative years were spent singing and touring professionally with choirs, and playing cello with orchestras. When this period of his life – a half, up to that point – came to an end he found himself burnt out, without a sense of identity. Seeking self-discovery, he rebelled. After a time adrift, his love of making music returned for good. He turned his ability to blend into strength, achieving harmony with his guitar and himself. FERGUS writes songs according to his mood, often choosing to embrace the melancholy and, through it, finding a place of healing, beauty, and serenity.
FERGUS is playing an intimate performance at St Giles in the Fields on 17.11.17, please let us know if you’d like to come along.
