Jamie Ferguson’s “Waiting For My Girl”: A Heartfelt Song About Young Love

So, Jamie Ferguson, a Manchester guy making soft rock music, just dropped a single called “Waiting For My Girl”. Maybe if you have listened to the first song, “Sweeter After Difficulties”, you don’t need an introduction. This new song still carries that vibe but with a little more energy.
“Waiting For My Girl” is like a sweet innocent love for an immature boy. Like, those moments where your heart is about to stop beating. Jamie got the sound just right for this dreamy composition where she blends soft rock with a bit of power pop to pull us into the song. See melancholic guitars, groovy basses, and a moderate rhythm that just takes you away with it.
Jamie’s lyrics? They’re the same as a warm blanket and they remind me of being heartbroken for someone. He says he got influenced by people like George Harrison and Mac DeMarco, so the name plays an important role here.
Ultimately, “Waiting For My Girl” is Jamie revealing his talent in both music and narration. It is catchy, it is heartfelt, but most of all it will end up on my playlist. Go for it – I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
