Fergusson is an original solo acoustic artist hailing from the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales. A one time member of popular Australian Folk band the Creel, Fergusson has been carving out a significant niche for himself in the folk/roots/contemporary acoustic world since late 2007, playing at many folk festvals, clubs and venues across Australia. Although heavily influenced by the folk genre, his music is both familiar yet something quite different. Irish Bouzouki and guitar are deftly played with an unmistakable folk influence but also with an energy and style that engages all audiences. His fluidity and modern approach to the Irish Bouzouki is particularly exciting. He writes both songs and tunes which at times are reminiscent of a good old Irish pub, and yet at other times, are highly suggestive of a roots/blues festival. Genre jumping? perhaps, but highly appealing to all audiences.
Late in 2008, Fergusson recorded and released his first solo album, Sam, an eclectic mix of songs and tunes that neatly embody his unique style and still remains true to his live performances. In 2009 he increased the elements of his live performances with the introduction of Loops and a stompbox which allow for greater rhythmic drive, harmonic and melodic lines, nothing beats the effect of 4 Irish Bouzoukis playing harmonies with a thumping bass beat beneath. In July 2009 Fergusson moved to the UK to travel around the country playing in clubs, pubs and festivals everywhere. His second album will be recorded in Cornwall early in 2010.
