About V Ferg
V Ferg is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, performer, and humanitarian whose music unlocks the power to make audiences sing, dance, and even think. By night, you can typically find him hosting lively underground New York City jams as part of his Creative Public Offering collective, performing to packed crowds at hot spots like SOBs, and recording endless amounts of music. During the day, he works as an “Illuminator,” educating sixth and seventh graders on matters of Social Justice. This ethos is reflected in his later album Higher Level Music. He’s jammed alongside the likes of Erykah Badu and shared stages with Girl Talk, MC Hammer, and many more. Playing bass, guitar, keys, and more, he bobs and weaves between rock, hip-hop, and R&B, landing a knockout each time he takes the stage.
