Chris 'OZ' Ferrara

About US

Some people are born to do what they do. Chris Ferrara is no exception. 

Hailing from a small town just outside of Boston, Ferrara's life actually began on stage when his mother went into labor while performing in the Sunday choir. It's as if he heard the joyful noise and needed to be a part of it.

As a kid, Chris was drawn to the sounds of Motown, Soul, and Gospel- big music with harmonies and infectious rhythm- but around the house, he enjoyed the music of his parents. Mom listened to Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, and Shania Twain, and dad jammed on The Doobie Brothers and Bruce Springsteen. Often times, Chris would escape to the attic where he would listen to his mother's Beach Boys, Carpenters, and Eagles records. In his teenage years, he dabbled in rock and hip-hop, and as an adult, he found a very comfortable place among country music.

That journey through music has allowed Ferrara to truly define who he wants to be as an artist, and his debut EP “Something To Prove” is a perfect blend of all of his most significant influences, effortlessly combining elements of Rock, Country, Soul, and Pop, and his personality and contagious style of music are garnering fans all over the globe, across all genres.

But don't let his boyish charm fool you. Chris, also known as ‘Oz,’ is an old soul ready to breathe new life into your playlist. He immersed himself in the music scene playing more than 1,000 shows in four years. Ferrara has toured nationally and internationally, sharing stages with acts including Mick Fleetwood, Lee Brice, Train, Edwin McCain, Sister Hazel, and Florida Georgia Line. 

Armed with passion and a guitar, Oz tours regularly with his supporting band, "The Common Good,” and the name is a direct reflection of his mission. "I want my music and my shows to make people happy. I just want to do good things with my music. I want to change the world for the common good."
