WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

“Surely, there are few artists whose persona belies their music more than Mike. Out of this diminutive, self-described southern boy comes an extraordinary soulful voice with a range, talent, and emotions that make him seem possessed.”

TERRY STEWART PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME + MUSEUM

“Mike Farris has enough heart, soul, and power to light up a city. He mixes up the elements and turns them into something new, beautiful, and uniquely his own.”

- BUDDY MILLER

“Mike Farris sings blue-eyed soul to soothe the spirit.”

- ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Never have I had so many people pitching me on an artist, and not I’m not talking just his people. Retailers, TV executives, other journalists and a array of music-loving folks have called or e-mailed or shoved a CD in my hand…”

- BILLBOARD

“Mike Farris is a soul man…way cool! When I saw him on TV the first time, even though I didn’t know who he was, I thought he was a star. When I heard his record, I knew he was.”

- MARTY STUART

“Out of the arms of defeat Mike Farris has done a victory lap….He takes people who are hurting, who are broken, who think they are alone and through just the sound of his voice he lets them know that they’re not…that’s magic.”

- MARY GAUTHIER

“Farris’ voice has moved unexpectedly higher – and stronger – and melds seamlessly with his female backup singers.”

- NO DEPRESSION

“Farris surrounds himself with a heavenly soundtrack that slides effortlessly between Stax soul, New Orleans gospel and shuffling Southern blues, all of it punctuated with Farris’ smoldering vocals and clear message of redemption.”

- HARP

“If Mike Farris were the one on television at 4am instead of those clowns that speak in tongues that translates into “send me money” then I believe we’d have a lot more souls saved in this world!!!!!! He’s phenomenal! That voice. That soul. Those songs. Good God, man!”

- JACK INGRAM

“Ranging from straight-on gospel to blues and Stax-style soul, the record is grounded in Farris’ faith and his sublime musicianship”

- POPMATTERS (FOR SHOUT! LIVE)
