We discovered Mike Farris two years ago at the Americana Music Festival where he put on a show that knocked our socks off. His 2007 album Salvation in Lights is just as good as his live and it clocked in at number 13 on our best music of 2007 list. Here’s what I said back then and still holds true with everything Farris does: “Ranging from straight-on gospel to blues and Stax-style soul, the record is grounded in Farris’ faith and his sublime musicianship. There’s a real New Orleans feel to the bulk of these tunes, as Dixielandesque horns pop in and out of songs, adding to the delightful Southern stew.”

Farris has a new live album releasing in April called SHOUT! Live featuring the McCrary Sisters. The performances are culled from his scorching Sunday night shows in Nashville at the Station Inn as part of the Sunday Night Shout series. Check out the EPK for the new release and learn more about this unbelievably talented artist.
