FERGUS JAMES SHARES
‘FALL SHORT’ + VIDEO
100s + 1000s are thrilled to share Fergus James’ new single ‘Fall Short’, a heartfelt, melodic offering that marks a new chapter in the Fergus James story. The release comes with a video directed by Rory Pippan (BENEE, Allday, Mallrat).
Seeing its first spin on triple j last night, ‘Fall Short’ is a coming-of-age narrative and an ode to personal failure, posing the harrowing question: ‘What If I fall short of what I’m meant to be?’ Fergus describes the song as a “symbol of not only my artistic journey but my personal journey thus far and is a declaration of me coming into my own.”
Written and produced with Sydney-based talent Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis, Angus & Julia Stone, Gretta Ray), Fergus has pushed himself and his music to new levels, resulting in what he calls “some of my most honest and self-aware lyrics to date”.

“The video experience of ‘Fall Short’ is a snapshot of various individuals and their lives. Stories of falling in and out of love, tales of loss and a connection or disassociation with something greater. It’s a moving artwork with a tangible depiction of the human condition, in all of its beauty and despair. From me to you xx”
