WELSH/AUSTRALIAN singer-songwriter Feralman is gearing up to release his debut album, Chapters 35-43, on 5 March 2021.
Featuring an array of songs telling stories of life events that happened to the musician between the ages of 35 and 43, Chapters 35-43 tackles emotions ranging from loss and worry to determination and love.
Opening with the popular I am DRAGON! with its edgy rhythm and dramatic explosions of sound, the 10-track debut from Feralman features new singles including We Shine, Won’t You Complete Me? and Anniversary Song.
Commenting on his debut, Feralman said: “Chapters 35-43 features some big emotional swings and incredibly personal topics for me, ranging from loss of loved ones, life threatening illnesses, tales of love and of resilience. It’s pretty ‘heart on sleeve’ stuff and certainly opens up a sense of vulnerability in me to have such highly emotional and personal feelings exposed in this way. There are few metaphors - it’s a fairly literal album.
“We’ve also tried really hard not to overproduce the songs and I really like that we’ve retained some of my imperfections, which are dotted throughout. My producer Raf Rico has been immense and really taken the sentiment and feeling of these songs on as his own - his contribution is significant. As too is Ricardo Martinez’s, who has mixed the album for me, again with genuine sensitivity. Huge thanks also go to Gabriel Alvarez for his masterful mastering.
“For me these songs tell my stories honestly, which is what I wanted.”
Born in Wales, Feralman has always had a passion for music and the arts.
