Bio: A DIY studio project dedicated to the exploration of all styles and sounds. Based in the Pittsburgh area we've just released our first full length album, an alt-country album, Give or Get and are working on our second which will be, put simply, different than our first.
“Seldom an album is created that achieves a rare feat of balance that makes it simultaneously universal and isolating. Isolation is not a negative descriptor for Give or Get, Brian Schaffner and Mike Simms’ debut album as The Natural Way of Farming. Schaffner and Simms tap into a shared experience – the unrelenting human desire to search. We are all searching for something yet none of us can find it because none of us know what we’re really searching for; however, the will to press on is greater than the desire to give up. The Natural Way of Farming have captured existence with Give or Get.Swapping talents, Schaffner and Simms play their hands on each instrument featured and co-pen Dylan-caliber-poetics. Give or Get feels like an album a well-seasoned band like Wilco would deliver, not two audiophiles from a small town in Western Pennsylvania. You will want to share Give or Get with all of your friends but with the disclaimer that you discovered it first and it is your album.”
