A STIRLING musician has launched a brand-new music project for 2021 – 3SouL.

Graeme Ferguson, who lives in Causewayhead, has joined up with Welsh producer Brandon Lee and long-time collaborator Pete MacLeod, who landed a number one song in the UK Physical Singles Chart last March.

The trio first linked up in 2019 when Ferguson and MacLeod were performing at K-Fest in Rhyl, north Wales, and began speaking with Lee. From the very start, it was clear there was a spark among them.

Ferguson, originally from Coatbridge, has also been able to flex some new creative muscles as part of the 3SouL project.

He said: “I've been playing bass and producing music and have worked with Pete in many projects over the years. I've played live gigs all over the place and I’m not used to being part of the writing process as much.

“Working in 3SouL has opened up a new chapter in music for me, especially the production aspects which is a whole different side of it.

“Meeting Brandon and seeing the process of production has been inspiring and long may it continue.”

Lee, from Rhyl, added: “As soon as I was introduced to Pete and Fergy in 2019 I knew we could create something brilliant. Each of us has something amazing to bring to the table and I'm excited to see where 3SouL takes us.”

The 3SouL journey begins with debut single Energy – a poignant look at the everyday struggles of life and the ongoing battle to make positive, forward-thinking choices. 

Singer MacLeod said of the single: “Most times in life you have to fight for the things you want. Even for life itself.

“It could be that you have made mistakes and you’re trying to recover from them. It could be that someone else has made mistakes and you’re trying to recover from them.

“Could even be no-one’s fault. Not one person wakes up and everything falls into place. There is an effort of positive energy that is required from ourselves.

“That is what life is to me. As the line goes in the song: ‘I’m a product of my own positivity’. It’s an attitude, an energy, and a positive one at that.”

The debut single from 3SouL is available to stream now on Spotify.
