Mike Farris is one of the most gifted singers of his generation. His unique blend of rock, blues and gospel has earned him praise from all corners of the music world including the best new and emerging artist award from the Americana music association in 2008. And his legendary, electrifying live performances have made him a favored son and standard bearer of the southern gospel tradition for the Americana music genre. On Shine For All The People, Farris' musical vision has coalesced into a sound that, at once, harkens back to early Stax records yet emerges completely fresh and all his own. The album's 10 tracks are saturated with horns, B3, and southern gospel backing vocals, but Farris is the star here. His voice evokes the soulful sweetness of al green in one moment and the razor sharp blast of Bon Scott the next, driving home his frequent themes of salvation and personal redemption.
