Jonathan Pasma, better known by his pseudonym Ferris Pier took an unorthodox approach to the music industry by breaking in while still working on his medical doctorate. But even after passing med school and practicing for a few years Pasma new his true calling rested not in healing the human body, but in getting it moving on the dance floor.
With that notion in mind, Ferris Pier set off to create dance-inspired EDM tunes with poppy hooks that required just the right voices to convey them. The Los Angeles based producer took to his television to find the right singers and found himself quickly collaborating with some of his favorite contestants on the voice including Abby Cates, Chris Jamison, and CLaire Dejean.
While he found great success collaborating with reality TV stars he had more he wanted to say. His most recent track “Like We’re Young” is a collaboration with r&b singer Pickwick and perfectly conjures those first dates, high school dances, and first kisses, for an older generation in search of happier times.
