Ferras was eventually signed to EMI's Capitol Music Group after an audition for the label's chairman Jason Flom while on Spring Break from the Berklee College of Music. After being signed by Flom, Ferras then flew to New York City to record demo versions of his songs, which would eventually form his debut album.
In April 2008, Ferras released his major record label debut with Aliens & Rainbows via Capitol Records. The album was produced by The Matrix (who has co-wrote and produced with the likes of Avril Lavigne, Shakira, Heather Nova, Jason Mraz, Korn, Liz Phair, Hilary Duff, Britney Spears and Skye Sweetnam) and Gary Clark (who's worked with Natalie Imbruglia and Lloyd Cole). The album features the lead single "Hollywood's Not America," which was featured as the "exit song" during the seventh season of the American reality series American Idol, giving Ferras a moderate amount of exposure and publicity for the song.
Ferras made his first national television performance on The Today Show.
