Carson Ferris is already making headlines at the young age of 13 and has a bright future. When he first picked up an electric guitar at age six, his quest began. Carson developed his stage presence at Dave Wilbur’s Rock Lab in Orem and then with the renowned One Voice Children’s Choir. Carson’s love of music did not waver in 2020 when everything came to a stop.
His successful track “Can’t Be Without You,” which featured Trinidad Cardona, was released in October 2021 after he took control of his career by making music in Los Angeles. He also demonstrated his singing and dancing skills in a video for Donny Osmond’s Las Vegas act, singing “One Bad Apple,” that same year.
Carson’s music is a blend of pop and a little rock, with influences from bands like Journey and singers like OneRepublic, Ed Sheeran, and Alec Benjamin. His objective is to produce music that connects with his audience and is both approachable and relatable. In order to devote more time to his music, Carson switched to online learning in 2020. He now often plays at regional music events like Fork Fest and Buzzards and Bees. Carson continues to be committed to composing and recording new music while working at June Audio in Provo and collaborating with producer Mykyl. Fans can look forward to hearing a ton of intriguing melodies from this young and talented musician, who plans to release a new song every six weeks starting in 2023.
“Speed Limit,” Carson’s most recent release, explores the emotional journey of chasing your aspirations. Carson and Mykyl, a skilled combo, worked together to co-write and produce the song. A high degree of pop production is exhibited with the assistance of powerful cinematic drumming and hazy pop guitars. All ages of listeners are moved by the young insight Carson shares in his lyrics. Anyone experiencing life’s hardships would do well to heed the wise counsel of one lyric in particular: “Whenever there’s too much in your life, you got to let go, let go, let go.”
The chorus’s final high notes effectively convey that pursuing our aspirations may be worth the sacrifices we make. “Speed Limit” is very personal in a lot of ways,” says Carson, describing his own experiences in the music industry. Even though I don’t usually feel this way, I occasionally feel too burdened to succeed as a young musician.
