Teenage troubadour Fergus James reveals his electrifying single ‘What Are We Waiting For’. With its infectious driving beat, ‘What Are We Waiting For’ is an uplifting anthem that acknowledges the fears and doubts we all must overcome to move forward on this journey of life.

The track was written in Melbourne with Pip Norman (Troye Sivan, CXLOE) and Mike Waters and was mixed by Eric J (Flume, Chet Faker).

“After unloading all my fears and doubts upon Mike and Pip, their combined experiences in life and music provided me with a sense of hope, not that of clarity, but that of “F*** it, music, like life, will go on”. All you can hope for is to enjoy the piece of art that you have put yourself into in the moment, regardless of popularity, money and ‘the crowd’ you wish to fit into,” Fergus explains.

‘What Are We Waiting For’ follows the release of Fergus’ debut single ‘Golden Age’, which saw the 18 year old’s triple j unearthed profile become the second most viewed profile on the platform in the first half of 2018, behind only G Flip. ‘Golden Age’ also received overwhelming support from both Spotify and Apple Music, amassing over 5 million streams.

Hailing from the country town of Armidale in New South Wales, Fergus was accepted into the Talent Development Project and Newtown High School of Performing Arts – one of the country’s leading performing and visual arts schools.

In 2016 Fergus performed for Justin Timberlake, who was blown away and exclaimed, “put that on the radio now!” The video on Timberlake’s Facebook page went on to clock up half a million views. In 2018 Fergus was handpicked by Ed Sheeran to open the Australian leg of his record-breaking Divide Tour, the biggest ever stadium tour in Australian history (selling over one million tickets).

Now with two incredible singles to his name, Fergus is ready to hit the stage on his debut headline tour, which will see him play his hometown of Armidale as well as Sydney and Melbourne this March.

A star on the rise, Fergus James is certainly one to watch.
