Ferraby Lionheart is a Los Angeles, California based singer-songwriter-musician.
Ferraby Lionheart was born in Los Angeles, but has lived in Nashville, Tennessee. He started recording songs on a 4-track recorder when he was 18. Through a mutual friend, Ferraby was noticed by producer/multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion, who invited him to play on-stage for a song. According to the biography on his website, he never intended to have an EP at first, as he just had a collection of songs to see where his music was heading—and the fact that he had grown tired of writing songs for the band he was in at the time, Telecast (not to be confused with the Christian rock band of the same name). The self-titled EP was released in 2006, then re-released digitally in February 2007. He was named after John Ferraby who was also member of the Bahá'í Faith - Lionheart describes himself as a "spiritual guy" who keeps his religion a "prominent part of my life."
His debut album, Catch the Brass Ring, was released on by Nettwerk Records on September 4, 2007.
Ferraby currently resides in Los Angeles.
