    Fergus Maximus

    Fergus Maximus is that bloke with his headphones on long after the playlist has finished, completely oblivious because there’s always music in his head anyway. His unapologetic pop songs encompass all the important things: love, loss, mistakes, surprises and people’s astonishing capacity to miscommunicate. In Ferg's engaging, melodic storytelling you'll find some extraordinary snapshots from an ordinary life.
