Fresh from an international tour, including dates in London (with Sarah Blasko) and New York, and a national tour with Josh Pyke, Sydney songwriter Fergus Brown announces a string of east coast dates to close 2009. Fergus’ melodic guitar-pop is reminiscent of The Shins, Bon Iver and Ben Kweller, but he is equally aligned with the lyrical peculiarities of artists such as Randy Newman, Jonathan Richman, and The Magnetic Fields.
His debut record ‘Burgers Frown’ is a collection of sometimes quirky, sometimes tender, love songs. Musicians on the record include producers Tony Dupé (Holly Throsby) and Paul Mac (silverchair), Tim Derricourt (Dappled Cities), Jack Ladder and Holly Austin. ‘Burgers Frown’ is available online and in Australian stores now.
