LA Based Singer-Songwriter Mikey Ferrari Releases New Single ‘Oxycontin’

Mikey Ferrari has delivered his brand new single titled “Oxycontin”, which is his debut as the newest signing to prestigious Neon Gold Records (Matt Maeson, HAIM). The tune is backed by a live performance video directed by Jax Anderson and shot near his Montana home.

Mikey Ferrari is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles who discovered music via self-discovery. Following adolescent struggles, Mikey found himself alone in Montana, where music became more than just a way to pass the time, but a genuine form of expression.

He began creating songs at the age of 17 and began producing music for himself in college after teaching himself to play the guitar and keyboard. Kid Cudi is mentioned as an inspiration because of his tale-telling and lyrics about mental health. On the opposite end of the spectrum, The Eagles and Billy Joel share equal credit for melody and arranging creative inspiration.

As the artist states, “I wrote Oxycontin to preview depict a very difficult and scary time in my life and to remind myself to never go back to that place again. The response to sharing a clip of the song was eye-opening, as I started hearing from people that had lost loved ones or struggled themselves in some way from the opioid epidemic.

I decided to open up an email account for people to share their stories in a safe space. Having the privilege to connect to other people about my struggle and their own has been the most difficult yet rewarding part of making music for me thus far.”
