Fetherstone releases “Ticket to You” the first single of her Unspoken Stories series, collaborating with artists and musicians to interpret strangers stories.
Unspoken Stories will see Fetherstone travelling to different cities around the world, searching for stories from friends and strangers. She will team up with songwriters, producers and artists of other mediums to bring those stories to life, record and release them, and then travel back to the city where the story came from to perform the song.
The first single “Ticket To You” is a story from a 9 year old girl in London, Nikita Charles, about visiting the Jimi Hendrix museum. Nikita's original words, describing Jimi Hendrix’s room and how it made her feel, were workshopped by Fetherstone and fellow songwriters Henry Mitton & Alex Gillespie. The song reflects the absurdity of paying to visit a dead famous persons old home when it might be as plain jane as yours and mine. The track was produced with London based engineer and composer Luke Brooking (aka Brew) over the past 6 months, a real labour of love from Fetherstone.
Try your best to compare the song to another artist or genre, but nothing quite fits. Part jazz, part pop, part electronic, this is just the first of a very interesting series of music to come. The Berlin story is next on the way.
The single is due out Friday 30th November 2018 with a single launch on 3rd December at The Fiddler’s Elbow, Camden. The launch show will explore storytelling through a live vocal painting, a Nashville style songwriter round, an exhibition of Lee Kay-Barry oil on canvas paintings and a set from Fetherstone to close the night. Tickets available at www.fetherstone.com.

Phone’s on the floor,
Something he said?
Four poster threads were hanging,
Over his head.
Pan on the stove,
Empty and cold.
The pieces of another lifetime,
Their stories have been told.
Ha, ha, ha.
I don't need these walls, these halls,
If you could see what you have come to be.
They don't need to walk your halls,
There's more than what the eye can see, I got a ticket to you.
(I got a ticket to you)
The post goes unread.
Was it the way I acted or something I said?
No cheques in the mail.
No portraits have been made.
Will they | come to find my humdrum story,
Or will it go untold?
Ha, ha, ha.
Ha, ha, ha.
