Along the way, Fergus has released a number of solo, albums including 1998’s Snapshots, Playtime in 2009, and Written On The Wind in 2015.
The new album Neighbourhoods was recorded at Kensington Sound with Vezi Tayyeb, and and
each song is set in its own musical “Neighbourhood.”
“The surfy, jazzy guitar on ‘Walking In A Storm’ is a reminder all the way through of the fluidity
and tonal effervescent of the man’s guitar playing.” – Lenny Stoute from Cashbox Canada
