Bio

The 24 year old Singer/Songwriter & Actor, based out of Dallas, TX, has been cutting his teeth on stages all over the United States for several years. He maintains a hefty touring schedule - 200+ shows over the course of 2017. Ferguson got his start as a songwriter serving as the front man for the Dallas based Psych-Rock band The Louisiana Purchase. After releasing several albums in that outfit, Ferguson took the dive into his solo career. In 2015, he released his debut solo album In Search of Certainty, recorded at Verge Music Works in Dallas, TX (Sixpence None The Richer). After several tours and various theatre gigs across the US, the road brought Ferguson to St. Louis, Missouri in early 2017, where he recorded his sophomore EP Basement Statements at Native Sound Recording (Pokey LaFarge, Aaron Lee Tasjan). Crate Diggers Dallas describes his sound as "...reminiscent of Robert Plant, mixed with a little Gary Clark Jr.". Gas Monkey Garage said that with Ferguson "... Stevie Ray Vaughn returned from the grave!"

Ferguson on his newest EP, 'Basement Statements':

"Most of these songs were written while I was going through an extremely humbling transitional period in my life. I had just graduated college and was living in my younger brother's basement in St. Louis, trying to figure out who I was post grad/post relationship/"real world". I had a lot of high expectations and very close "almosts" one after another that left me feeling discouraged. Way down. In a basement, if you will. I also realized I didn't have anything that was truly mine other than my clothes, my guitars, and my songs. My amazing friends and family, of course, but in terms of actual belongings, that was it. So I dove in. These songs came out of that basement. It's about falling in love, falling out, making decisions, and moving on."

Mitchell has shared the stage with Charley Crockett, David Ryan Harris, Melissa Polinar, The Suitcase Junket, The Steel Wheels, Lilly Hiatt, The Texas Gentlemen and Shakey Graves.
