Oswald Ferrer: From Marine Corps to Mastering Music

You are what you think you are. It all starts in the mind and manifests itself in a physical form.

Introduction: The Multifaceted Journey of Oswald Ferrer

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, and raised in the hustle and bustle of New York, Oswald Ferrer is not just your average musician. He’s a testament to the transformative power of self-belief, dedication, and resilience. He has mastered the art of producing his own music, merging various skills, and connecting with his audience in the most authentic way. 

His journey started early with a fiery passion for music. By the age of 18, Ferrer had already embarked on a defining chapter of his life, joining the Marine Corps. It was during this period that he took the initial steps toward what would become a remarkable musical journey. "I joined the marine corps at 18 and started to fund my music and develop my craft," Ferrer shares. His musical education wasn't in a conservatory or a university. Instead, it was a self-taught odyssey through recording, instrumental production, mixing, mastering, and even delving into photography, cinematography, and video editing. Oswald Ferrer is the epitome of a self-made artist. 

When asked about the genesis of his passion, Ferrer reminisces, “The love for music and being able to connect and uplift others through my experiences." And his stage name, "The Colors," and his label “Wherethelightingisbetter” seem to capture this very essence - the idea that music, in its hues and shades, illuminates the darkest corners of our existence.

Many might assume that this jack-of-all-trades might find some part of his expansive career challenging, but Ferrer feels differently. "I personally don't feel like there are any challenges in what I do. It’s something I love doing and it comes naturally to me," he states confidently. This sentiment speaks to the sheer determination and love he has for his craft. 

One of the standout moments in Ferrer's career is the exhilarating experience of performing live. “The biggest accomplishment I've had so far is performing and actually engaging with a live audience," he says. The connection with a live audience, the direct feedback, and the energy is unparalleled. Beyond that, the rapid growth of his listener base is a testament to his talent and hard work.

However, every life, including Ferrer's, has its shadows. He speaks candidly about the struggles he’s faced: “I had to go through a lot of loss to be where I'm at today.” Yet, he remains philosophical, adding, "It’s how you deal with the cards that are given to you that makes you a great player in this game we call life."

To those who wish to follow in his self-made footsteps, Oswald Ferrer has some simple, yet powerful advice: “I believe we all have rhythm. We all can put words together on paper. If you love music, go for it. Take it one step at a time. You don't have a team? Become the team. Anything is possible with time and dedication."

In an industry that often seems insurmountable, Oswald Ferrer’s story stands out as a beacon for those who dare to dream and, more importantly, for those willing to work hard to make those dreams a reality.
