Carson Ferris Releases Poignant Electro-Pop Single “Ghosts”

Carson Ferris, the young prodigy from Provo, Utah, has just released his latest single, “Ghosts,” a song that marries a cool electro-pop vibe with profound and heavy themes. Drawing inspiration from personal experiences and keen observations, Ferris has crafted a track that resonates deeply with listeners who have navigated toxic or unhealthy relationships.

“Ghosts” stands out as Ferris’s first collaboration with renowned producer Matthew Parker. Initially envisioned as a dance track akin to Dua Lipa’s infectious hits, the song evolved into something uniquely its own. With a tempo slightly slower than traditional dance music, “Ghosts” retains the essence of electronic music through its synth-heavy beats and drum patterns, resulting in a perfect blend of emotional vocals and chill vibes.

When discussing the inspiration behind “Ghosts,” Ferris explained, “The song is about letting go and moving on from situations and people that aren’t good for you. In the bridge, the lyrics emphasize that moving on is the only way things can be okay. Holding on to negativity only breeds more resentment. Forgiveness is crucial for moving on, even if it seems easier to hold a grudge.” This poignant message, coupled with Ferris’s heartfelt delivery, makes “Ghosts” a cathartic listening experience.

Ferris expressed immense satisfaction with the final production, stating, “There are a lot of strong emotions in this song, and I love the way the production conveys that. It was a huge pleasure working with Matthew Parker on this one!” The collaboration has yielded a track that feels reminiscent of a remix by Kygo or Marshmello, marking a distinct evolution in Ferris’s sound.

“Ghosts” is Ferris’s first single release in almost nine months, following his 2023 hit “Talkin’ to You.” This new release ventures further into the electronic genre, showcasing a more mature and sophisticated sound. Notably, Ferris recorded all his vocals for “Ghosts” in his home studio, underscoring his growing independence and artistic control.

At just 14 years old, Carson Ferris has already built an impressive music career. His journey began at the age of six when he chose to learn the electric guitar. His musical foundation was laid playing guitar and singing in rock bands at Dave Wilbur’s Rock Lab in Orem and performing with the acclaimed One Voice Children’s Choir.

The global pandemic in 2020 didn’t hinder Ferris’s passion for music. Instead, it propelled him into solo ventures, leading to his 2021 release “Can’t Be Without You” featuring Trinidad Cardona. That same year, Ferris had the unique opportunity to perform “One Bad Apple” in Donny Osmond’s Las Vegas show.

Ferris’s talent has been widely recognized. In 2023, he received Honorable Mention in the Teen category for his song “Crazy” from Unsigned Only, and he was a finalist for Best Male Artist in the International Acoustic Music Awards for his acoustic version of “Drive Alone.”

Ferris’s music blends pop with rock influences, drawing inspiration from iconic bands and artists like Journey, OneRepublic, Ed Sheeran, and the Jonas Brothers. He aims to create music that is both accessible and relatable, connecting deeply with his audience.

To focus on his burgeoning music career, Ferris transitioned to online schooling in 2020. This flexibility has allowed him to dedicate more time to writing and producing music, as well as performing at local music festivals like Fork Fest and Buzzards and Bees.

With “Ghosts,” Carson Ferris continues to demonstrate his exceptional talent and versatility as a musician. This latest single not only highlights his ability to tackle complex emotional themes but also showcases his evolving sound and production skills. As he continues to grow and refine his craft, Ferris is undoubtedly a young artist to watch.
