Ferera Swan is a recording artist, songwriter, composer, pianist, violinist, and GRAMMY voting member of The Recording Academy. Having worked in the music industry for the past two decades, Ferera has written, arranged, and engineered music for other artists in varying genres. As an adoptee and trauma survivor, Ferera is passionate about bridging advocacy with creativity to bring about social change as she continues advocating for racial justice, equality, adoptee rights, and more ethical practices in adoption.
With a foundation in classical music, Ferera began piano lessons with music theory and ear training at age three. Three years later, she picked up the violin. After learning that she was adopted at age ten, Ferera poured unanswered questions into music and wrote her first song at age 10. This was followed by her first cinematic score at age fourteen titled 'Serenity', which was premiered by four orchestras with a turnout of over 2,ooo people. Her original piece 'Lighthouse' was featured as a highlight piece in the soundtrack for the film documentary raising public awareness for coral reef crisis, Swim For The Reef, which was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in France in 2016.
Her music gives fans a brand-new perspective on this artist from the inside out: Unpacking the trauma of maternal & family separation and ongoing healing journey through unfiltered honesty, Ferera shares her heart through an intimate and vulnerable collection of messages relevant to all of us, reaching the hearts of all listeners.
Her single, “Second Time” (2019), written for her biological mother, was produced by Ramy Antoun (former drummer for Seal & founder of A&F Drum Co.) and includes the work of Jacob Hildebrand, Jake Riley, Sergio Andrade, and the multi GRAMMY award-winning F. Reid Shippen. Ferera has released two other albums under former artist names. With exciting projects on the horizon, new releases are in store for 2021.
