Ferry Graf (born 14 December 1931 in Ternitz) is an Austrian singer, who is now a Finnish citizen.

Career[edit]

In 1959, Graf was selected by the Austrian broadcaster Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF) to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest 1959, with the German language song "Der K und K Kalypso aus Wien" (The K and K Calypso from Vienna). The song ended second to last, in joint ninth place receiving four points.[1] Although the song was released as a single, it was not a commercial success.

In the years following his Eurovision participation, Graf made a few appearances in Austrian and German TV, including, playing at ZDF-Hitparade in 1969,[2] but made no major successes.

In the 1970s he moved to Finland, where he formed his own band, performing Hillbilly music, as well as German cover versions of Elvis Presley's classic song.

Ferry Graf is now a Finnish citizenship living in Jyväskylä.
