In this field, Carson Ferris is a formidable opponent and must be taken seriously. Because of his one-of-a-kind musical style, deep love for music, and unflinching commitment to perfecting his craft, he is quickly becoming a rising star in the music industry.
This young singer-songwriter was born and raised in Provo, Utah, and began playing the guitar at the tender age of six. He has been captivated by music ever since he was a child.
Ferris polished his abilities at Dave Wilbur’s Rock Lab in Orem, where he was surrounded by other musicians who shared his enthusiasm for playing, and it was there that he found his love for performing. After that, he became a member of the One Voice Children’s Choir, which contributed to the further establishment of his position in the music business.
Ferris, on the other hand, decided to take charge of his own life because the year 2020 was so unpredictable. He was brave enough to move to Los Angeles and try to make it as a solo artist. It was at this studio that he recorded his first hit, “Can’t Be Without You,” which featured Trinidad Cardona and was released the following year, in October 2021.
Ferris’ most recent album, “Drive Alone,” is both a demonstration of his development as an artist and a call to go on a journey of inward exploration. This song talks about how hard it is to make all the choices you have to make in life and find your own way, no matter what other people think.
Keep an eye on this rising young talent as they continue to create waves in the music industry.
