La Casa de Mi Padre & Ferrier →
We had the amazing opportunity to play a benefit show last week for an amazing organization called La Casa de Mi Padre in El Salvador. This organization helps out kids coming from bad situations and literally redirect the course of their lives. We were honored to be asked to play and help raise money to support the cause. The link included in this entry is for the La Casa Facebook page. Please...
Bandcamp & Ferrier
Before Ferrier made the journey into iTunes and other digital media stores such as Amazon, we made our first internet appearance on a site called Bandcamp. This site is an amazing tool for independent artists such as Ferrier- it gives us an outlet to release music and keeps a much lower percentage of sales than other music stores. It also allows fans the ability to stream a complete album FOR...
Journeys, TOMS, and Ferrier →

Citing everyone from Woody Guthrie to Public Enemy, he eloquently and humorously reminded those in attendance why music moves people. It’s worth a listen. -WH ...

Promo Video for CD Release Show- talking dog!!! →
We shot a video today for our upcoming CD release show next week. It took about 3 minutes to shoot. It would have taken 20 seconds but we kept laughing. And “we” includes our videographer/video editor for the bit. Special thanks to Buddy the Dog for being such a good sport about the whole thing. He is a total pro.

THE PICTURES WE PAINT
We live in a city of “hits.” A city that bases success on radio spins and record sales. I’ll agree that there’s a degree of success based on that. It does seem a lot of times that maybe that’s all that matters now though. Even to us, the ones who claim to be above that. There’s a strange line between making it and selling out. Do they go together? Is selling...

Ferrier YouTube channel is live!!!
We have started a YouTube channel to post videos from our live shows and other music related stuff we think is interesting, hilarious, or hopefully both. The first video we are posting is Jordan’s son Eli signing “Uprising” by Muse. Unprompted, Eli began singing along with this song in the car one day. A few days later a similar event was captured on tape and is now available...
