CRITIC’S PICK: His days leading the hard blues rocking Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies are far behind, as searing, soaring, soul vocalist Farris has been releasing solo albums since 2001. Initially he updated gospel standards but Farris has expanded to Memphis-styled soul and for the better. He will doubtless play his recent cover of Drivin N Cryin’s “Honeysuckle Blue” and songs from the fabulous Silver & Stone from 2018. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Coming off of an incredible GRAMMY win for 2015’s Shine for All the People (Best Roots Gospel Album), Nashville rocker Mike Farris keeps it earthy and personal on Silver & Stone, (Compass Records, 2018). The title refers to his wife Julie’s wedding ring, and the album is a celebration of their 23 years of marriage and her steadfastness in sticking by him through his years of struggling with addiction and alcoholism. Now sober for 9 years, Farris has the energy and conviction of a man saved, a stack of anecdotes and life experiences that would make most people’s heads spin, and a soulful vocal delivery reminiscent of Sam Cooke or Otis Redding.
