Mandrake / Will Ferraro Bleed In Blue single
Allen Borden, Phoenix New Times, AZ
Listening to Will Ferraro’s / Mandrake’s new release on
CandySpiteful Productions, the first thing that comes to mind is
seasoned vocals and killer music. The song “Bleed In Blue” gave
me chills. Ferraro has crafted a totally unique sound. He is
defiantly our there, way far. His voice is the core of his sound
and the production is above average to say the least. I’m not
sure what the addiction is but I listened over and over to the
music. I wonder if Ferraro knows something that we don’t. I
especially like the odd way that his vocals have a mysterious
and sexual sound. He is totally gifted or totally fried, either
way Ferraro is so far past the ordinary that this musical
creation left me numb and wanting more.
100 percent for creative and outstanding music. A must have
for anyone wanting a new sound that is polished and well
Julie McLaughlin, Phoenix College Times, AZ
I first met Will at a music-networking event in
phoenix. We were both sitting on a panel of industry
representatives fielding questions about the industry. Will is
polite, professional, and knowledgeable. I was both surprised
and impressed after learning that he was the owner of the
Eastside Mansion Recording Studio in Tempe. Several of the music
submissions that I have reviewed in the past were recorded and
produced by him at his Mansion Studio. The recordings that come
from his studio always have a polished edge to them. After
talking with will I learned that he is a musician, crafts his
own line of drums, and is the president of CandySpiteful
Productions. I asked Will if he had any of his own music that I
could listen to and his reply was “not right now but I can send
you something.” Sure enough about a week later I received his
latest work called “Bleed in Blue” with a cover letter
stating that it was not yet mixed and mastered. As I listened to
the recording my first thought was that maybe this was not his
work or he singing? I listened closely and determined that yes
this is actually he singing and he has a very confident and
polished sound. Will is a really sweet guy, yet this music is a
little dark, and edgy. I am at a loss as to what to compare it
to. The lyrics are simple, brilliant, and well delivered. His
voice has a sound to it that is hard to describe. The vocals in
this mix have no special effects on them that I can detect. It
is obvious that will knows how to capture the soul of a
performance. It also became obvious to me that he has refined
his own sound with years of practice, skillful production
ability, and access to some high quality recording equipment. If
anything stood out as being exceptional it would have to be his
voice, followed closely by larger than life guitars. This song
is good, really good. The performance is on par with anything I
have ever heard. I am anxious to receive the finished album that
is due to be released this summer. The Eastside Mansion

Upon listening to Bill Ferraro's newest release on
Candy Spiteful Productions. My first thought on the
first song was THE ART OF NOISE meets MORPHINE. This
was changed after a classical-sounding piano part came
in with a very old, almost renaissance-like progressive
rock feel to it. You definitely have to hear this guy
to believe he's the only one playing all of these
instruments. He's a one man band with a concept album. I
describe the music. Maybe no one can. It's totally
and very different .One thing is for certain, this
guy's production is way ahead of his time. I give
Ferraro a lot of credit for doing something so out of
the ordinary in this area. It's very artistic and
personal. First off ,Bill started playing at the age of
4, and now he is to the point of building his own
custom drum kits which can be heard on this release. He
plays all the instruments, and did the mixing and
mastering too. The guy does it all and it shows here. I
really liked this disc. It has that artistic, out there
quality. It goes into breaks that make you feel like
you are listening to one of those pure moods nature
CDs or something. Then it snaps you back with
something more mainstream. It's actually pretty cool and
it grows on you after you hear it a few times.
It's artistic, different, and believe me, he's a very
talented musician, especially as a pianist. The music
is at times out there, but always remains
graspable. It's new, different, and experimental.
This is one of the things that impressed me the most.
