“Kevin Kozel, senior writer for MusicReviews.Com says, “I think that Matt Farr would put on a really nice outdoor show any time of year. A nice cold one in the heat would go nicely with this sound.”
Although South Florida is home, the Matt Farr Band has performed up and down the east coast of the U.S. In 2012 the band embarked on a 3 week summer tour from South Florida to Vermont and back bringing the music to over a dozen coastal towns. The band has opened for acts such as Five For Fighting, The Family Stone, Ryan Montbleau Band, The New Orleans Suspects and others.
Matt Farr’s debut solo album was released in April of 2010. The album was recorded in St. Augustine, FL by legendary producer Jim DeVito. Matt Farr’s dedication and future potential has attracted world class musicians on both his album and on stage including Craig Barnette, known for his work with Mofro and Donavon Frankenreiter. Pete Winders and Eric Brigmond, also known for their work with Frankenreiter. Rounding out the lineup is Farr’s long time friend and collaborator Craig Stevens on bass. Farr has never been moved or interested in mainstream trends and wanted to capture the raw, timeless sound of the 60’s and 70’s. The ten uplifting tracks on the solo release speak about living each day doing what you love, and learning from all those times that may have past us bye like the album’s four on the floor, upbeat track “Living Like Ourselves” or the acoustic ballad “Crossroad”. “Mostly I just want to bring across a musical journey that reaches out to the listener, and once it ends, they want to start again at track one” Farr explains. In 2013 the band released a live album “Live From Pineapple Groove”.
Pushing on into the ever changing and challenging music climate you can catch Matt Farr at venues throughout Florida as he begins work on a new album set to be released in 2015.
