Born and raised in the small town of Sharon, MA,CHRIS FERRARA is a combination of city boy swagger and country boy soul. He relocated to Music City in 2013 with just a suitcase and a guitar, and he has been making a name for himself ever since. His music draws from an eclectic mix of influences - from Muscle Shoals to Motown and every stop in between - to bring a style that is as familiar as it is new.
A true entertainer known for his soulful voice and high energy performances, Ferrara and his band, THE COMMON GOOD, currently hold a weekly residency at THE TWELVE THIRTY CLUB in Nashville. Over the last four years, he has held multi-year residencies at other top venues on Nashville’s famed Broadway strip (The Stage & Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row). He has also been flown all over the world to perform for corporate clients and charity events (Capitol One, Miller Lite, Athlete’s First, Kids Cancer Alliance, & more).
The band’s name “The Common Good” is a direct reflection of Ferrara’s vision for his career: to make the world a better place for the common good. His movement, aptly named "IV - For The Common Good” is being used to share happiness, inspire positivity, and shine a light on the good that goes on around us. Proceeds from all of his singles have been donated to various charities, and he continues to donate his time and talents to serve his community, both in Nashville and beyond.
Ferrara’s recent singles- notably ‘Old Glory,” which was used as the coming home song for the U.S. Navy’s CVN 71 U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt - have been distributed by Big Machine Label Group in partnership with non-profit Creativets, helping veterans share their stories and recover from PTSD. Ferrara has worked with Creativets for the last 8 years and continues to donate his time to our nation’s heroes.
Whether it’s just him and a guitar or he’s backed by his electrifying band, Chris Ferrara is a highly sought after talent and has garnered a reputation as a show that is not to be missed.
