Americana singer/songwriter and recording artist Joe Farren crafts warm, lively tunes that chronicle complex human relationships and life’s many adventures. The Portland Press Herald declared him “a solid songwriter who draws on life experiences from both the interior and exterior vantage point.” His narrative lyrics and sincere performances offer an unobstructed view into the heart of an artist who embraces each moment.

Farren grew up in Portland, Maine moved by the harmonies and rhythms of country, folk, rock and R&B luminaries like Hank Williams, Jr., Elton John, Jerry Lee Lewis and Bruce Springsteen. Early on, he hammered out blues riffs on the piano, then picked up a second-hand drum kit and became a fast, proficient drummer and percussionist, playing not only drums but also keyboards and guitar with a variety of New England bands on bills with the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Veruca Salt, the Rustic Overtones and many others.

While studying classical and jazz music at the University of Maine, Farren connected deeply with alt-country and contemporary country dynamos like Ryan Adams, The Jayhawks and Keith Urban that were telling relatable stories through exposed, emotional poetry and multi-layered, crisp recordings. Thus began his journey to make sincere, textured music that captures the vibrant colors of Americana and folk culture. His critically-celebrated debut album,‘Til the Day was released in 2007 and led to an extensive East-Coast tour, spins on national radio stations and a spot as a headliner on the Maine Songwriter’s Association’s annual Old Port Festival.

Farren moved to Florida in 2011 and writes fresh material while maintaining a rigorous live performance schedule at venues up and down the East Coast. His latest release, Open Skies was recorded in collaboration with Nashville-based producer Jason Roller (Kelly Pickler, Winona Judd). Renowned bass player Lance Hoppen (Orleans) performs on the album along with a slew of talented Nashville studio players. Open Skies is a musical book of character-driven short stories that range from serious and sweet, to humorous and wild.
