About this Event

FINAL CROW SHOW of 2020

Mike Farris will perform solo at The White Crow Conservatory of Music in Saginaw MI., on Friday April 24th at 7pm. There will be a reception afterwards. Farris is a Grammy award winning artist and former front man of the band, the Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies and also was lead singer for Double Trouble, Stevie Ray Vaughan's backing band. His repertoire includes soul, gospel, blues and roots rock music, and his ignited performances have garnered a large, faithful following of fans.

"With a supersized voice filled with the electricity of Saturday night and the godly grace of Sunday mornings ." — Rolling Stone Country

"On the singalong 'Snap Your Fingers' and a touch cover of Willie Dixon's blues gem "Let Me Love You Baby," Farris takes us down to the river and washes us clean in spellbinding performances you'll return to as soon as they're over." – American Songwriter

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, (released September 7, 2018) on Compass Records. 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 struggling with addiction and alcoholism. Now sober for 8 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. SILVER & STONE isn’t a “gospel” album by any means, but Farris still takes us to church on these 12 engaging tracks, including a cover of Bill Withers’ “Hope She’ll be Happier.”

Produced at Compass Sound Studio (AKA “Hillbilly Central” – the birthplace of Outlaw Country) in Nashville by Compass Records co-founder, Garry West, SILVER & STONE finds Farris imbuing his songs with a vibey, lighthearted feel, returning to his roots as a rocker and soul singer. The album weaves through the traditions of American music the way that Tennessee born and bred Farris has done expertly throughout his 25-year career, starting with his major label band, Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies.
