Event Details

We are rather excited at Camp Jenny:
It’s the long, long-awaited return of Seattle-based alt.country rockers Massy Ferguson!

For more than a dozen years, Massy Ferguson have proudly planted their boots on both sides of the country-rock divide, carving out their own brand of amplified Americana along the way. Based in Seattle, they’ve become international torchbearers of a sound that’s distinctly American, with a touring history that spans nine different countries. On their fifth album, Great Divides, they double down on their rock & roll roots, mixing bar-band twang with raw, guitar-driven bang.
Gluing those sounds together is the songwriting partnership of bass-playing front man Ethan Anderson and guitarist Adam Monda, whose songs spin stories of small-town adolescence, big-city adulthood, and the long miles of highway that stretch between.

“Massy Ferguson have put together an excellent mix of rock and country twang on their very impressive debut record” — John Richards 90.3FM KEXP Morning Show Host (US), Producer

“Run It Right into The Wall is a solid slice of gritty roots rock music which deserves a listen. The band also have a fine live reputation” — Blabber n Smoke (UK)

“If you happen to be partial to straight-ahead punch the sky southern roots rock with a side order of beer swilling choruses, then climb aboard and put the pedal down.” – Folk Radio UK

“Into the Wall encapsulates everything that is both good about them and this genre: blue collar poetry, a grasp of dynamics, the ability to pare back when necessary and be able to show vulnerability and some experimentation … MF are the kind of band that are the bedrock of this genre, like Slobberbone or the Ass Ponys they make records that are beautifully crafted and worthy of a wider audience” — Americana UK

“Yet again Massy Ferguson have been like a ‘breath of fresh air’ again with an excellent set of well constructed and intelligent songs that will appeal to Rockers of all ages and persuasions too.” — Rocking Magpie UK

“(Victory and Ruins) is one hell of a fine album that crackles with instant hooks and melodies, has an effervescence of choruses and boasts a fistful of damn fine blue collar songs into the bargain.” Mike Davies, Folk Radio UK

“These are more-than-convincing roots rockers fronted by a convincing and memorable lead singer in Ethan Anderson’s aching heartland growl. There’s Springsteen-esque touches & hints of old Whiskeytown in the mix from this up and coming Pacific Northwest band.” – Bruce Warren, WXPN Philadelphia, (US) Producer, Some Velvet Blog

“Feel free to label this band as whatever genre you want. All I know is, the next time I’m driving on an open highway with the windows down, Massy Ferguson’s Run It Right Into the Wall will be the first in my playlist. — Elmore Magazine (US)

“I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve seen Massy Ferguson. I guess that’s a sign that I enjoy this band. Their music spans many genres from Americana, roots, folk, twang rock, alt-country, and good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll. The music is two-step friendly, and dancing is always encouraged.” – Lisa Knight, No Depression (US)

“Seattle band Massy Ferguson further cement their alt country /roots rock status with another solid new album Victory & Ruins. The thirteen song collection focuses on the easy going narrative vocal styling of Ethan Anderson, who is mix between Tom Petty and Steve Earl.” – No Depression (US)

“Massy Ferguson displays a knack for mature and intelligent songwriting, and when slowing the pace, beautifully crafted songs like The Hard Way and Bring Something Back are achingly gorgeous. ” – Michael Canter, Jivewired

“First and foremost, Massy Ferguson are a rock band raised on crashing guitars and a driving beat but are not afraid to mix in a bit of refined country to shape their music in true American tradition.” Three Chords and the Truth, UK

“Seattle band Massy Ferguson further cement their alt country /roots rock status with another solid new album Victory & Ruins. The thirteen song collection focuses on the easy going narrative vocal styling of Ethan Anderson, who is mix between Tom Petty and Steve Earl.” – No Depression Magazine

“Also known as “the People’s Band,” this roots Americana quartet combines steady, blue-collar alt-country with Southern rock and an everyman ethos that has helped it land gigs all over the world.” — Shawn Telford, Seattle PI

“You know only good things can come from a band that named itself after a farm-equipment company. But they’re not as hayseed as you’d expect. Their songs are steeped in the classic Americana of the Blasters, the Jayhawks, and the Backsliders. Rich with imagery of highways, truck-stop coffee, whiskey, road-weariness, and bad motels, Massy Ferguson make cinematic music about the blue-collar aspects of our nation. This is what Jay Farrar might sound like without his thesaurus.” — Brian J. Barr, The Seattle Weekly

“Alt-rocker angst mixed with wry humor … and some Seattle dive bar name-dropping.” — Mike Lewis, Seattle PI

“They’re also pretty funny guys who, when there’s no other booze in the house, will do shots of Bud Light. — Kim Nowacki, Yakima Herald
