Fahri / Bio

Originally from a small northern suburb of Chicago, Fahri was started up in 2005 by husband and wife duo, Sarah Long and Miles Murray. Shortly after, the band was picked up by Kovington, KY label, Ionik Recordings, who released a self titled, electronic EP for Fahri.
After the release of their EP with Ionik, Miles and Sarah relocated to Milwaukee, WI where they were immediately welcomed into a thriving indie music scene. Fahri has since been featured on WMSE radio, toured nationally, and played many shows and festivals in the Midwest region.
Fueled by the hard hitting, yet intricate beats of drummer, Joe Huber, Murray and Long use their natural pop sensibility to shape atonal, fuzz-laden sounds into rock gems. They mix off kilter guitar hooks with eerie, lyrically rich vocal melodies resulting in a deep and darkly blissful love affair between their songs and their listeners.
