Ferraby Lionheart

Ferraby Lionheart is a singer/songwriter that graced us with a session in our early days and played our first every SxSW party. His new album, Jack of Hearts, is out now and the first single released is “Harry and Bess.” The song is about the heartbreaking romance between Houdini and his wife.

For the video, Ferraby called on friend and fellow Los Angeles native, Rainn Wilson. The end result is exactly what you’d expect in any scene featuring Rainn. More on their relationship from Ferraby’s interview w/ Spin:

We met in Los Angeles  through the Baha’i’ religion, back when he was doing commercials and I was a goofy kid playing the Sunset Strip…As a matter of fact, I asked him to write my very first bio.

Ferraby Lionheart parted ways with Nettwerk Records, took a long vacation, and is now recording a new album in his home studio. He also left Los Angeles for New York and will be playing Monday nights at Piano’s on the Lower East Side before making a trip to Austin for SXSW 2009.

No word on when the album will be released, but I’ll keep you posted.
