After the two songwriters met to discuss collaborating, lightning struck. While Shayfer had been sneaking Ferryman into live shows for a while, he never thought of it as finished finished and had a gut-feeling Will would cook something up that would take it to the level it needed to be. Will did that and more.
In addition to contributing the glorious opening "row-row down the stream" hook and his scathing bridge vocals/lyrics, Will recruited sax player Matt Berger to add baritone sax. Using Will's new additions as a spring-board, Shayfer edited the song down from 5 minutes to a tight 3 and worked with Grammy nominated engineer/mixer/producer Mike Ferretti to produce and mix the song in the style of his forthcoming album Shipwreck (Fall 2022.). The song also features percussion by Dani Markham (Childish Gambino, Tuneyards.)
Ferryman will be available worldwide in August 19, 2022. Pre-save now
