hi, i'm For Tuesday. i make lofi emo rock music mostly in my bedroom.

more specifically, i'm Mark Ferris, the songwriter, instrumentalist, producer/mix engineer behind the indie rock project For Tuesday. the project started as a series of lofi music sketches on my Instagram and my Tiktok account  where I explore the creative possibilities of cassette tapes, guitar pedals and synthesizers to make short-form tape loop driven ambient, lofi, experimental music. inevitably, the project birthed a series of single releases where i've explored different ways of integrating some of those lofi tape sounds with an indie pop or rock sensibility, leading to the release of The Postal Service inspired single "Hard Drive" in August 2020, followed by the release of The Smashing Pumpkins-esque "The Summer Went" in October 2020, then rounding out the year with the release of the synth and riff-heavy "Count Me In" a month later, described by Chalk Pit Records as "idyllic synth-pop anthem (which) will have you listening on repeat".

For Tuesday has been the subject of many positive press reviews recently from indie music blogs such as Chalk Pit, LittleDoseOfIndie, Kings of A&R, EarToTheGroundMusic, TheOtherSideReviews, and more. You can listen to For Tuesday music on Spotify, Apple Music, or other major streaming services.
