Whatta Voice: “Wonderful” by Houston-based singer Ferni


FERNI, “Wonderful”

There are so many great, lesser known voices out there in the world, and on some occasions I am privileged enough to write about them.  With these days of accessibility to music everywhere, we get to hear songs we would never otherwise have heard.  Ferni Lopez is a veteran blues/rock singer from the Houston area, and his ages-old voice packs the emotional wallop that just doesn’t grow on trees.  “Wonderful” is not everyone’s cup of tea – it’s a thoughtful, deliberately paced, sparse-sounding blues/rock song.  But regardless of your rock music affinities, it will rivet you with its subtleties and intensities.  Yup, all in one song.  It’s from Ferni’s recently released EP Afterburn, which you can buy on iTunes but also hear on Ferni’s Bandcamp page.  And remember where you read about it 🙂
