FARRIS presents: WE ARE CREATURES
FARRIS finally releases their album, after 4 years in the making and the jumping, hopping, skipping, continent cruising of its lead singer Kathleen Farris. Thanks to Santiago, Camden, Keith, Haben, Bruce, Juanito, Chris, Craig, and all of those folks out there who made it happen.
FARRIS melds diverging influences of its band members including blues, latin samba, hard rock, new wave, and mellow acoustic sounds while maintaining the importance of lyrics and highlighting Kathleen’s unique, compelling voice. FARRIS’ debut release, “WE ARE CREATURES” will be out in March 2013. Four of the twelve songs directly speak about political issues including, “Chased to Heaven” a gospel and reggae inspired song about the Sudanese Lost Boys escaping civil war and “The Dam” a full-on rock song which creates a metaphor between the US and a dam blocking the flow of a river. “Tu Eres mi Vida” is a world music-driven raucous ride with horns and multiple percussion sections blending many languages. Listen carefully to the remaining songs which touch on predestination, buddhism, love, death, and reincarnation including the alternative rock title-track, “We are creatures”, highlighting a philosophy that Kathleen holds dear - that we are all united under one sky.
