Mike Farris

Mike Farris

 It’s in the quiet moments sprinkled deftly throughout his new album, SILVER AND STONE, that Mike Farris reveals a previously hidden side of his singular instrument.  His voice, widely known for its power and range, becomes a vessel for something more subtle but infinitely more rare and challenging to capture—the pure, authentic nature of returning to your roots. Farris – the first recording artist to receive a Grammy Award for best Roots Gospel Album, shares original material as well as his trademark interpretations of traditional gospel steeped in the influence of rock & roll, New Orleans swagger and vintage Memphis soul.  Musically, the album delves deep into Farris' background with a wide range of influences, drawing as much from Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers as from Bon Scott and Steve Marriott. Farris’ larger-than-life vocals, straight out of the South, sharpened in the clubs of New York City, honed over a lifetime of collaboration and stage time with the likes of Patty Griffin, Patti Austin and Double Trouble deliver not only the funky danceable blues-rock that draws audiences to his live shows but also a deeper insight into Farris’ hard-earned understanding of the complexities of the human condition.
