Biography

“Stuart Ferguson writes songs that capture your imagination, and sings them in a
voice that is addictive to the ears.” — Ellis Paul


“Stuart tells stories that have the ring of an unadmitted truth. His voice is clear and haunting, his delivery is honest and unflinching. Unlike the all-too-common introverted songwriter Stuart’s songs tell the hard stories many of us know, but few give voice to. A troubadour has a specific job to do — and Stuart knows how to do that job.” — Jim Infantino

Stuart Ferguson is an exciting voice on Boston’s thriving acoustic music scene. Raised in a musical family, the Newton, MA native is a classically trained flautist. During college he stepped away from the world of classical music to pick up the guitar and begin writing songs. By the late eighties Stuart was immersed in the Boston/Cambridge open mic scene, from which emerged a new crop of literate songwriters including Patty Griffin, Ellis Paul, Dar Williams, and Vance Gilbert.

With influences as varied as Lou Reed, Joe Strummer, Woody Guthrie, Gram Parsons, and Luka Bloom, Stuart’s tenor voice displays broad emotion moving through a lyric to deliver songs that are stories and poems of personal struggle and redemption. Stuart’s songs speak to the core of the human condition, thoughtfully exploring themes that are often avoided. He dives into the darker territories of addiction and despair and yet somehow, he seamlessly guides you into the realms of unconditional love and hope.
