Fernandito Ferrer has been a young pioneer among the new breed of singer-songwriters in Puerto Rico. He first appeared on stage in Lares '97 and from then on has been known all around the Island and abroad. Ferrer draws from the Nueva Trova giants of the '70s but has also developed his own language within his work. His percussive guitar technique and impressive vocal abilities together with the good use of subtle yet powerful melody and poetic imagery puts this small-towner's music in a much wider context. His style is best compared to the works of Tracy Chapman, Annie D'Franco, Jorge Drexler, Silvio Rodriguez and Nick Drake
