Philly Musician Heading South to Promote Upcoming Album
J.W. Farrell, an emerging artist based out of Philadelphia, will be performing at the Acoustic Coffeehouse this upcoming Wednesday, June 14th at 8pm.
The Acoustic Coffeehouse will be his second stop on his “Little Words Tour”, an impromptu summer promotion for his upcoming full length LP. Listeners can expect a compelling blend of Americana, new wave and rock, a sound that Farrell has carefully crafted as a solo artist.
Seating is on a first come, first served bases, so patrons are encouraged to come early. J.W Farrell will be available after the show for a meet and greet.
Farrell is a former member of the NYC based pop rock group “La La Lush”. After two records, a sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom, and a US tour culminating in an appearance at SXSW, the band took a permanent hiatus in 2015. During this time, he began to develop his sound as a solo singer/songwriter. While hibernating in Virginia, he wrote and recorded his debut EP.
Born and raised in Bucks County in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Farrell began forming bands with his friends as soon as he started learning guitar, much to the annoyance of anyone within ear shot. His material is a reflection of both personal experience and a variety of musical influences (Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen and John McCauley, as well as the sonic influence of some of his favorite bands, The Walkmen, My Morning Jacket and The Gaslight Anthem).
“Alexandria EP” was released 6/10/16 at NYC’s Arlene’s Grocery, accompanied by a music video for the first single “Alexandria”. J.W Farrell is currently in the studio working on his first full-length album with producer Tim Stezzi.
