Carson Ferris released his second single “Speed Limit” following up on Drive Alone and Drive Alone Acoustic Version
Although Carson wrote the song about what it takes to chase his dreams as a musician, you will find it relating to anyone who listens to the song in a way or another. We all have our own battles to fight, so we always need someone to give that piece of advice to keep us moving on and believing in your dreams. This is what really makes this song special as it visualizes your own personal goals and that’s what we felt when we first listened to it.
In addition to Carson’s powerful and touching vocals, despite being 13 years old, but it swiftly finds it’s way to your heart. Featuring bright guitar riffs and huge symphonic drums, the song is very introspective about looking at your life and trying to figure out how much is too much to give up for your dreams, managing stress and finding balance. The soaring high notes at the end of the chorus signify that all of the sacrifices can be worth it as you work towards your goals.
Quoting Carson “Speed Limit is very personal in a lot of ways. I don’t always feel this way, but sometimes I do get overwhelmed trying to make it as a musician who also happens to be a kid.”
Along some very good advice “Whenever there’s too much in your life, you gotta let go, let go, let go.”
Speed Limit was recorded in Provo’s June Audio recording studio. Engineering the track was Maren Gayle with Jen Marco doing vocal production. The song was mixed by Adam Turley and mastered by Eric Disero. Keep an eye out for continued Single releases from Carson throughout 2023.
Carson got to choose an instrument to start learning when he was 6, and he chose electric guitar. He got his chops in music performance playing guitar and singing in rock bands with other students at Dave Wilbur’s Rock Lab in Orem, and then with the acclaimed One Voice Children’s Choir.
When the world shut down in 2020 Carson did not want to stop making music so he struck out on his own. He began recording music in LA and released Can’t Be Without You featuring Trinidad Cardona in October 2021. Also in 2021 Carson got the opportunity to have a video of him singing and dancing One Bad Apple in Donny Osmond’s Las Vegas show.
Carson’s music is pop with some rock influence. His favorite band of all time is Journey, and his music is influenced by OneRepublic and solo acts like Ed Sheran and Alec Benjamin. Carson writes his music to be both accessible and relatable.
Beginning in 2020 Carson has moved to all online schooling to give him more time to work on his music. He has put that time to good use as you can often find him playing in local music festivals like Fork Fest and Buzzards and Bees. He also stays busy writing music, working with producer Mykyl and laying down tracks at Provo’s June Audio. Carson is on track to release a new song about every 6 weeks in 2023, so lots of great music on the horizon.
