Farewood is comprised of husband and wife songwriters Lou Lorenzo and Leah Booker. Rounding out the present lineup is drummer Kyle McCarthy and soundscape artist Ed Diaz. The band finds inspiration for their tunes against the backdrop of their hometown of Meriden, CT. The desolate feel of the city surroundings consistently finds its way into the subconsciousness of their songs, yielding a sound that at times is shadowy, desperate and lonely. But like many Connecticut towns, once you venture out of the emptiness of its downtown center, the back roads can unfold into beautiful, almost country roads. That duality, or contrast if you will, can be found throughout their music. Their songs can be dark, but underneath it all lies a certain unmistakable beauty.
The band is currently recording their fourth album, which they hope to have the ready for 2012. Farewood's sound has drawn comparisons to The Cocteau Twins, Sundays, The Cure, Afghan Whigs and Dinosaur Jr.
