Creatures indeed. When it comes to brothers, none are more "brotherly" than the Ferraro brood. Though the name may be new to some ears - their dynastic legacy is not. They are descendants of The Cameron House (which is still in the family's hands). A venue with a well-earned reputation as the place to be seen, and to see new music. Surrounded by the storied history, and witness to countless legendary performers - it was almost unavoidable they would band together to do the same. Cosmo, Tally and Gianni have no memory of when they started to play together. To them, it's always been so. However, they do recall the forceful recruitment of Tally, the youngest brother to sing - he unwillingly complied...and they've never looked back.
Looking back is a fitting way to describe their sound. It's 50's inspired and yet it’s inherently modern. They clash, bang and grit it out, with a melodic tone that is reminiscent of The Beatles and The Strokes. Their debut record 'Losing Sleep' encompasses all those aspects and sticks in your head - it's catchy as hell. The title track (also their first single) is a toe-tapping, finger-snapping, sing-along inducing ride - expect no less from the album. A lot of heart and soul went into this bad-boy.
They’ve come a long way since sneaking into bars and clubs, and playing with large X’s on their hands. They’ve earned their stripes on the road, and with key showcases (like NXNE, CMW, The Halifax Pop Explosion) – they’re paving the way to making national fans.
