Joe’s soulful new album "Undercover" offers a stirring collection of popular cover songs from powerhouse singers like Ray Charles, John Mayer, Amy Winehouse and Sam Cooke. Joe has been described as a “folksy version of Bruce Springsteen” and brings the same raw passion and energy to some of the most celebrated songs in our culture. He adds: “Creating this album has allowed me to focus on classics that I’ve been performing and organically making my own for years, while adding new material that I have just begun to bring to the stage.”
The album was produced in Joe’s home studio lending to a relaxed vibe which comes through in the recordings. The music arrangements are simple, as Joe used acoustic guitars, keyboards and percussion instruments he had laying around his home. The performances on “Undercover” reveal a more bluesy, soulful side of Farren than we’ve heard on his previous recordings and his vocal delivery is raw & heartfelt on every track.
In this new release, expect more of what Joe has delivered in the past– as Indie Music Digest proclaimed: “Farren’s voice goes down smooth with a timber that is simply infectious.”
