With an introduction suffused with melancholy, ‘If It’s Easier’ steadily evolves with a positive energy delivered via gently strummed guitar chords and rolling drum rhythms. Fergus’ mesmerizing vocals tell a relatable poignant tale that unravels to the human instinct to protect themselves.
FERGUS said about the single “The title-birthing track of the album. This was a song I had mapped out on guitar for ages and ages, just waiting for the verses to materialise. Life and love can beat us down, and make us want to close up and sort of “opt out” to feel safer. Is it easier? Probably. But will that lead to fulfilment…? So it goes from being very risk-adverse, to having doubts, then to eventually surrendering utterly – at the mercy of love.”
FERGUS’ debut album ‘Love Upside Down’ was released in May 2022 to critical acclaim. The artist has been supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio X, Clash, HUNGER, Wonderland, Songwriting Magazine and Atwood to name but a few. Collectively his songs have amassed over one million streams on Spotify alone.
In September 2021 FERGUS headlined a packed-out show at The Troubadour and continues to entertain on the live circuit throughout 2022, at venues across London such as The Lexington, The Bedford and newly launched The Camden Club. FERGUS is also set to perform at Tramlines in July with more festivals to be announced.
16th July – The Camden Club, London
23rd July – Tramlines Fringe Festival, Sheffield.
Praise For Fergus:-
“a potent authenticity is found in every track alongside cliche-free lyricism and compelling melodies” – Wonderland
His songs are just as soft, stirring, and soothing as ever, but there’s a remarkable warmth and hope deep inside every one of these eleven tracks. – ATWOOD
“The first thing you notice about Fergus is the voice. High, keening, mellifluous, his virtuoso performances can distract from the depths of his songwriting, until you begin to tune in to the finer details.” CLASH
“A mesmerising look at a rising star” HUNGER Magazine
“Fergus is an artist who is able to drive home rolling percussions with thumping beats”
“An orchestral-tinged AM ballad that leaves a lasting lump in the throat”
“Young Tonight” is a near perfect nostalgic track. The sway and vocals soothe us more than we can articulate.” –Ear to the Ground
“Fergus’ delivery here is reminiscent of classic Crowded House, with a touch of Jose Gonzalez. While the warmth of the instrumentals succeeds in conjuring the sense of euphoria and positivity that Fergus is seeking to harness.”
“finely crafted with effortless sweeping vocals and delicately plucked guitars. FERGUS is known for his honest delivery, chiming harmonies, and textured layers and these acoustic versions bring out of all those elements”. Neon Music
“London-based singer-songwriter FERGUS shapes a rather beautifully evocative and melodramatic listen.”
