Praise For Mike Farris
"By late last year, seems like Mike Farris' name was coming up all the time — with casual fans, the guy who used to play drums in the Marshall Tucker Band, in glowing words from Marty Stuart and Buddy Miller ("Mike Farris has enough heart, soul and power to light up a city," was Miller's official statement on the matter, while Stuart called Farris "a star").
It's inspiring to hear so many people with glowing things to say about something, especially when that thing is too gritty and hard to define for flavor-of-the-month status. But it's more inspiring to hear Farris sing. He's one of the most dynamic, convincing talents to emerge from Nashville in years, and his Salvation in Lights album sounds like the gospel truth."
- Peter Cooper, Staff Writer, The Tennessean
"Farris' own romping composition "Streets of Galilee" sounds like something folks have been singing on Sunday for decades - it's that good."
- The San Francisco Chronicle
"Mike Farris sings blue-eyed soul to soothe the spirit."
- Associated Press
"I was simply, blown-away. I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said the same thing. It's simple and the truth!"
- Bryan Beck, KGSR
"He blew everyone away. Definitely his voice is a gift from God."
- Stacy Owen, WFPK
"I caught Mike Farris' show at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville recently and was blown away by his soulful vocals. He reminded me of a young Steve Marriott as much for his vocals, as his size and stage presence. Such energy must not go unrewarded."
- Ian MacLagan
