Bryan Ferry

Bryan Ferry

From his earliest recordings with his group Roxy Music, at the beginning of the 1970s, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative singers and lyricists to emerge in popular music.

The emotional intensity of Bryan Ferry’s vocal style can be heard to great effect on his epic interpretation of the Bob Dylan classic, ‘A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’. This spectacularly theatrical, artistically defining opening track on ‘These Foolish Things’, released in 1973, would introduce what Ferry has described as his ‘ready-mades’; cover versions of recordings by artists whom he admires, which he then interprets in his own style.

dylanesque dvdLike all great singers, he turns the cover version into a form of self portraiture. In the case of ‘A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’, Ferry creates an astonishing fusion of racing energy and high sophistication – turning Dylan’s political allegory into a bravura display of snarling, swaggering cool.
In September 2006 Ferry recorded ‘Dylanesque’ – an artistic tribute to the songs of the American singer songwriter for which Bryan Ferry has always had enduring love and respect. Hard hitting and fast paced, ‘Dylanesque’ included Ferry’s haunting interpretations of ‘Positively Fourth Street’ and ‘All Along The Watchtower’ and was released and toured to critical acclaim and packed audiences.
