Ferni is Flyah

 

Ferni is an American singer-songwriter living in Houston, Texas.  He is a vocalist and guitarist whose music is a unique blend of driving alternative rock and folk rock styling, delivered with a raw, passionate honesty and intensity.
The founding member of the former Texas bands Of Love and Justice (Houston) and Brother Sol (Austin), Ferni is a veteran of writing and performing original music in numerous venues.
 
For his debut 2013 release Afterburn, Ferni performed all instruments, vocals and production entirely on his own. The results are impressive. 
 
A new untitled album is planned for release in 2016. Ferni's latest single - Change of Heart - has just been released at the end of August 2015. This new album "will be something more melodic and more gritty around the edges than Afterburn", according to Ferni. "I think people will hear that in the first couple of songs being released."





Some press on Ferni's previous EP release, Afterburn:

"Wonderful is a tremendously soulful effort on the latest album by Ferni, Afterburn; the track is one that needs little more than a piano and a strong set of vocals to succeed. The two elements combine to create something that would work well on pop radio (taking a similar tack to Sam Smith and Charlie Puth) as well as appeasing those that want something deeper and more intricate with their music. The gradual progression present in Wonderful ensures that listeners will be on the edges of their seats from beginning to end.

How Do You Like Me adds a set of drums to the mix, halving the overall run time of Wonderful in the creation a funky track that links together The Wallflowers and Tom Petty. The multiple layers of the vocals provide further depth to this composition, showcasing a wholly different fa├žade to Ferni. The chunky bass line that plays at the bottom of the track makes this a sterling track for this EP.
Why Don’t You has a quick tempo and an overall sound that links together U2 and Neil Young into a noisy and furious effort that boosts the momentum of Afterburn considerably. Talk To Me is an epic composition in the vein of Muse and Pearl Jam, with a swirling eddy of guitars and drums providing a brilliant backdrop for the track’s vocals.
The digital version of the Afterburn EP contains a bonus track, Don’t Let Go. The track provides a wholly different sound to the end of the EP than it began; the wide array of tools that Ferni utilizes here makes this one of the more illustrative short albums that we have heard this year."

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
