Ferry exists as a mystery — elusive, aloof, teasing the curiosity, changing the mind. The solo project of Jean Low, lead singer and guitarist of Giants Must Fall, Ferry is the creative output of a very diverse, sometimes confused individual who just likes to make things look and sound pretty.

No crew, no managers, no labels. No plan. Not even a real band. Just stories, told through the medium of sound and the language of heartbreak. So who the F are The E’s? Well, who’s asking?
