Ada Ferguson is an emerging Soul/R&B vocalist and songwriter based in Vancouver, BC. Her influences include Motown, Folk and Blues, and new infusions of Funk, Jazz, and R&B.
Blending soulful harmonies, 70s-inspired arrangements, gospel-infused vocals, and relatable lyrics, Ada creates a new musical experience with her songwriting that crosses genres and keeps her listeners fully invested. Ada released her debut single, Lost on you, in September 2021; she has also released a collaboration with classmate Nathan Browns - a product of the Vancouver Community College's Singer/Songwriter program. She is continuing work on other original material for future releases, as well as collaborating with classmates and friends on multiple projects.
Ada began musical exploration at an early age, growing up in a musical household, singing in church and school choirs, and doing her own deep listening dives well before her teen years. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Ada has resided in Vancouver with her two children for the last 8 years. She splits her time between studying songwriting at Vancouver Community College, and performing with the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir, directed by Gail Suderman.
