CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

SHOUT! The Official Mike Farris Newsletter- Oct 2013

SHOUT! The Official Mike Farris Newsletter

So, I know it’s been forever since you’ve seen one of these in the ole mailbox but better late than never.
We're flying down to Dallas in the morning and there's lot’s to cover so I’m gonna just stick with the important items of the day-
THE NEW ALBUM- Mixing is complete with the exception of two songs, then it’s off to be mastered. We have had more than our share of setbacks but we finally see the light out there! Everyone here cannot wait to share this record with you! We hope to be accepting pre-orders before Christmas as we aim for a early 2014 release, which is perfect timing to set us up for summer tours. I want to thank each and (almost ;) every one of you for maintaining your cool with us. Just remember, NO ONE wants this record out as bad as us J
UPCOMING SHOWS-   Ok, now for upcoming shows. We can't stress how important it is for all of us to help get the word out for any shows we do. These are the foundations of what we do and to build our audience we really need you guys and I know we can always count on you!
We are all thrilled to be embarking soon on our first Scandinavian tour! That's right, tilling fresh soil in one of the most beautiful places on earth and we can't wait to see what awaits with those beautiful people! Another big highlight for me is our Christmas show this year. This is definitely a must see event. BIG plans in the works here so reserve your tables now folks. It's gonna be a cray cray Christmas :) Be sure and check that list below twice to make sure you don’t miss any shows near you!
That’s all for now. I have a lot I wanna share with ya'll about what's been going on but it'll have to wait for now. It’s off to the laundry room, then the guitar packing, gear, fold clothes, print itineraries, pack flight gear, feed and put all the little (and big) critters to bed, tell our son how super cool we think he is and wrap our heads around the awesomeness that is Texas. Thanks again to all of you special, wonderful, and uniquely beautiful people for allowing me the honor of playing music for you. I remain, grateful.
In spirit-
