John Michael Ferrari is no stranger to awards.  He was voted Crossover Artist of the Year by New Music Awards 2021; named Rising Star of the Year 2021 by eZWay Magazine; awarded Triple A Album of the Year 2020 for his album “Be the Smile on Your Face” by the Producers Choice Honors; his song “Like a Rock n Roll Band” was named “Peace Song of the Year 2020” by Art 4 Peace, and he was awarded Singer Songwriter of the Year 2019 at the Fame Awards.   Reviews have been generous for Ferrari and his latest single “My Heart Can’t Breathe”: “His newest song, ‘My Heart Can’t Breathe,’ also represents his inexplicable ability to create relatable music. … a catchy song that translates to thousands.” - Pitchfork Music (November 2021) “John Michael Ferrari sings the breakup blues in his song ‘My Heart Can’t Breathe.’ Though the song is about heartache, he presents emotional lyrics in a catchy country/AC track that showcases his true artistry.” - Independent Music and Arts, Inc. (November 2021) “John Michael Ferrari’s latest single ‘My Heart Can’t Breathe’ is merely a masterwork of Americana soul stretched over a frame of lean rock and pop. Pour a tumbler of whiskey, twist up the volume knob, sink into this foot-tapping, heartfelt groove, for a trip through some painful memories of an afflicted heart that manages to digest and acknowledge the event of loss with dignity and self-awareness.” - TunedLoud! (November 17, 2021) “The award-winning singer-songwriter, John Michael Ferrari has returned with a generous and emotional single, entitled ‘My Heart Can’t Breathe’, that suggests a mature, philosophical perspective on painful memories of a broken relationship, without losing his impish sense of melody and taste for lavish organic arrangements. Fittingly, then, it’s a song that takes stock, both lyrically and musically - imparting lessons learned over time and giving John Michael another chance to showcase his versatility as a songwriter, not to mention that gift of a voice, equally impressive as a languid croon, or when reaching resonant heights. “It’s immediately apparent that working with producer Pepper Jay, is a good fit. Pepper has created something that has a fresh pop feel, while giving a nod to classic singer-songwriter tracks, all the while curbing any tendency to veer off on indulgent musical tangents, allowing John Michael Ferrari’s voice to dominate, with the support of Tania Hancheroff’s backing vocals. Indeed, ‘My Heart Can’t Breathe’, is all crisp, multi-tracked pianos, electric guitars and swooning harmonies.” - Soundlooks, the Sound Journal (November 2021) “My Heart Can’t Breathe”, produced by Pepper Jay, was recorded at Larry Beaird Music Group, Nashville. John Michael Ferrari lives on his ranch in Pahrump, Nevada. Source: Independent Music Network
