Rich Ferguson is a poet with a sound, not the scratch of pencil on paper or the tick of fingertips on plastic, but the sonic of syllables warm and warn rubbing up against trip hop beat and street atmosphere. Imagine Kerouac kissing Massive Attack with a side order of Swordfish Trombone. All this and more can be heard on Richs latest opus, Where I Come From, produced by Herb Graham, Jr (John Cale) with Jeremy Toback (Brad) on bass and Butch (Eels) on drums. Rich has graced radio stations across the nation, including WBAI, KCRW, KPFK, and World Radio. He has shared the same stage with Bob Holman, Patti Smith, Exene Cervenkova, David Thomas (Pere Ubu), Holly Prado, and many more. He has performed at the Redcat Theater in Disney Hall, the South by Southwest Music Festival, the North By Northwest Music Festival, the Henry Miller Library, Tongue and Groove, and Beyond Baroque. In short, hes been around.
