Calgary/Toronto-Based Singer-Songwriter The M.A.S. Project Drops Powerful New Single 'Scared Fearless'

By Eric Alper.

Calgary, AB-born, Toronto, ON-based singer-songwriter and pianist, Michael Anthony Sawers, solo artist of The M.A.S. Project, has released his latest single, “Scared Fearless”.


This powerful and emotionally charged new song explores Sawers’ journey. Filled with heartfelt lyrics and dynamic melodies, it serves as a moving portrayal of overcoming his struggles with OCD and his therapeutic process.


Scared Fearless is a song I wrote about going through something very difficult - therapy!” says Sawers. “I have OCD, so this is a song about facing these OCD fears head-on until my brain is so desensitized to them that I’ve been scared into feeling fearless about them.”


The multi-talented pop, rock, and country artist, who now resides in Toronto, recorded “Scared Fearless” in a converted church that was used as a recording studio not far from the city.


“Despite the heaviness of the song, making ‘Scared Fearless’ was actually really fun” Sawers explains. “There is an old church near Toronto that was refurbished into a recording studio. We recorded all day there, with light shining on us from the stained-glass window - it was a special experience!”


Scared Fearless” continues The M.A.S. Project's successful track record, demonstrating Sawers' versatility in a variety of musical styles. His infectious pop anthem, "Something Real" and his country-pop track "Giving Love a Try" are well-known to fans with the former being added to Spotify's prestigious "New Music Friday Canada" playlist.


Sawers, the Calgarian musician, creates music that appeals to listeners all over the world by fusing modern production methods with retro inspirations. A debut performance at Massey Hall in 2024 and headline appearances at prestigious Toronto venues including The Drake Hotel are just a couple of the accolades he has received for his music.
