Carson Ferris: new single "Crazy" out June 16
Young indie-pop artist Carson Ferris is back again with a fresh, new single entitled “Crazy.” “This song has it all: teenage angst, rock beat, na na nas, and a rap,” he said. Recorded at the wonderful June Audio in Provo, this new single from Ferris has more of a rock vibe than his previous work, telling the story of someone pursuing something even though the odds are stacked against them.

Ostensibly, the song is about a couple that people say are too young to be together. In actuality, Carson wrote it about feeling like he’s too young to be pursuing a music career, or feeling like he’s being seen as too young to be taken seriously. “I wrote the song ‘Crazy’ when I was 11 years old, after being challenged to write a love song," Ferris said.” I was unsure how to write a love song, so I decided to write about my love for music and what it's like to be trying to make it in the music industry as an 11-year-old. The song has a more crunchy, rock vibe than some of my other work. In the song, people are saying it’s crazy that I think I could ever be with the girl I like, that I’m too young, and stuff like that. But the song is actually about my passion for music and how I’m determined to make it as a musician, no matter what anyone says.”

Wise beyond his years, Ferris continues to put out high quality work, incredible for any 13-year-old. “Crazy” will be streaming everywhere June 16.
