London based singer-songwriter FERGUS releases his new single ‘Dear Heart’ on March 3rd, 2022. Released via Goldun Egg Records and co-produced by FERGUS and Jake Gosling, ‘Dear Heart’ follows previous singles ‘Flatline’ (28.01.22) ‘More Than I Deserve’ (rel 19.11.21) ‘All I Dream’ (rel 03.09.21) and ‘Leave Me Light’ (rel 25.06.21) and is the fifth single taken from FERGUS’ debut album ‘Love Upside Down’ set for release in May 2022.
‘Dear Heart’ opens with the rumble of an organ’s almost funereal tone. FERGUS’ pitch perfect haunting vocal captivates, as he lays bare his soul through a series of painfully heartbreaking declarations to a mother that he thought he was going to lose.
FERGUS said about the track “I started writing Dear Heart a long time ago now, when I was facing the prospect of losing someone dear to me. I wrote that seasons change and time marches on, but I’ll always have you here, in my heart. The second half came along, years later, at the end of the decade when I was thinking about what I would have wanted to say, had things not worked out so fortunately.”
FERGUS’ releases to date have received critical acclaim from the likes of BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio X, Clash, HUNGER, Wonderland, Songwriting Magazine, Atwood, WTHB, TMR and Hidden Herd. Collectively his songs have amassed over one million streams on Spotify alone. FERGUS has released three EP’s: ‘Purple Road’ ‘18, ‘Three of Swords’ summer of ‘19 and ‘Close Quarters’ Dec ‘19. 2020 saw the release of 4 singles. At the beginning of 2021 he released Live EP ‘Live from Rivoli Ballroom’ followed by 3 singles.
The talented songwriter and performer completed a series of live shows across London at the start of 2020 and has been keeping fans entertained through live streaming shows for the likes of When The Horn Blows, The Sunflower Lounge and Instagram live.

Praise For FERGUS:-
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. New single ‘All I Dream’ is out tomorrow – CLASH
Providing us with the perfect new tune to soundtrack our entrance into autumn, is London-hailed singer-songwriter FERGUS with “Enough for You” – Wonderland
“A mesmerising look at a rising star” – HUNGER Magazine
“Fergus is an artist who is able to drive home rolling percussions with thumping beats” – Songwriting Magazine
“An orchestral-tinged AM ballad that leaves a lasting lump in the throat in the vein of Night Beds’ exquisite debut LP ‘Country Sleep”– Hidden Herd
“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.” Indie London
“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 in his second EP, Three Of Swords” – Record of the day
“An immersive, expansive, and expressive musical adventure, “All You’re Not” is all the proof we need to know that FERGUS is growing and evolving his artistry in real-time” – ATWOOD
“Three Of Swords’ is comprised of six elegant tracks juxtaposing reverie and restlessness” – When The Horn Blows
“With his Three Of Swords EP having dropped recently, the unique indie pop Fergus produces is finally getting the attention it has deserved for a long time” – The Most Radicalist
