Ferlo

Fernando (Ferlo) Lourenco is a Portuguese-born musician-singer-songwriter who has been creating his unique, eclectic brand of music for over two decades. Coming of age in the 1980’s, Ferlo was captivated by the British Synth-Pop movement. The industrial electronic bands like Human League, Ultravox and Depeche Mode helped form his early musical styling. The sharp electronic beats and rhythmic pulse of their sounds captivated him.

A move to Canada in the late 80’s broadened his auditory tastes. There he discovered artists like Leonard Cohen, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. The introduction of the North American Acoustic and Folk genre was truly the origin story of Ferlo’s unique blended style. At the age of thirteen he picked up a guitar for the first time and penned the first of his hundreds of songs. A self-taught prodigy, Ferlo learned to play, compose, layer, and produce music on his own.

As he musically matured through his teens and into his twenties, Ferlo’s vocal influences, artists like Davis Gahan the front-man of Depeche Mode, and the emotional and melancholy lyrics of Jeff Buckley helped mold his sound.

In March of 2015 Ferlo released his debut album, “Out of Place”. This album will be his calling card for years to come. He has infused his years of training and varied personal styles to create a musical experience that is at once haunting and mysterious, and excitingly energetic.

The twelve handcrafted tracks that Ferlo has poured his soul into, subtly jump between genres. He takes the listener on a tour of his influences with an inspired mix of melodic synth-driven electronica, and “stool-and-a-microphone” guitar driven folk storytelling. It is masterful debut from a talented artist who has hit the ground running and shows no sign of slowing down.
