So Close is the debutsingle for Ferry de Ruiter. After doing various projects, working with bands and producers it was time for its own single. Ferry wrote the song with its friend Duncan Laurence and made the music together with reMarkable beats (Mark Nieuwenhuijse).

You cannot ignore this idiosyncratic, cheeky but gentle talent,
Ferry de Ruiter breaks with all labels that are put on music & people!

Early on, music and all the different instruments were carefully listened to at home. From 60’s soul to 90’s house have been of great influence on both development and sound of this artist.

As the first person worldwide in The Voice to participate in drag, Ferry was awarded the Dutch Rainbow Award for Best Media Moment in 2015.

After working on various projects Ferry decided to change its name into Not.Your.Regular.Boy. in 2017. After releasing 4 singles under that alias they decided to put the power back into its own hands and split with their producer in 2019.

The performance of Creep at the opening of the Jos Brink Award in 2019 was the re-introduction to the world as Ferry de Ruiter.

After performances on the Dam (Amsterdam) and shows with the band on various pop clubs and stages such as Paradiso to its name, Ferry de Ruiter will release the long-awaited solo single So Close!
