Music is more than a passion for me, it is simply a way of life. I was born Fernando Lourenco but I create my art under the name Ferlo.
Growing up in Portugal in the 1980’s my first musical influences came from the initial wave of British Synth-Pop groups like The Human League, Ultravox and Depeche Mode. The sharp electronic beats and rhythmic pulse of their sound captivated me.
In the late 80’s I made the move to Canada and was introduced to the North American Acoustic songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, and their folk / blues guitar based melodies captivated my softer side.
I picked up a guitar for first time at the age of thirteen and penned the first of hundreds of songs that I’ve written. I taught myself to play and from there, learned to compose, layer, and produce music on my own.
As I musically matured through my teens and into my twenties, my vocal influences, artists like Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, and Jeff Buckley helped mold what would become my sound.
