Arkansas Elvis is an alternative/ rock band based in Nashville, TN. The Band was formed in the summer of 2011 by Michael Farnam and Mike Barbour as both were in search of fresh projects. Both lifelong musicians, the two had hopes of creating a progressive sound that emotionally told a story both musically as well as melodically, while still capturing the appeal of your everyday listener. The two began writing and in the midst of relentless work and recording, they met guitarist Adam Martinelli and bassist Alex Burghart who had ventured to Nashville to further pursue their musical endeavors. With the lineup complete, the four set out to fulfill the sound and finalize the recordings that would become their debut full length album Yvette. With their album release in the fall of 2013, Arkansas Elvis has set out to bring their hard hitting, energetic performance and sound to the masses.
