Welcome to Episode 13 of The Zen Sessions.
Today we go a little bit country with two interviews. First is Casey Barnes and up after that is Andrew Farriss.
Golden Guitar winner, and one of Australia’s best country rockers, Casey Barnes has on Friday released his first
foray into pop with a striking new single “Come Turn Me On”, following the success of his ARIA #1 Australian Country Album,
Town Of A Million Dreams that also earned him an ARIA nomination for Country Music Album of the Year. With immediate hooks
of electric guitar and violin, this country charger’s beat drops as it reminds us that there’s nothing better than coming
home to the one you love. Barnes will be taking his new track on the road with a bunch of dates announced around Australia
including a haul of some of Australia’s most respected country festivals (Way Out West Fest, Gippsland Country Music Fest,
Gympie Music Muster etc) and gigs in QLD, SA, VIC and TAS!
For Andrew Farriss, it has never mattered what style of music he is writing. What is important is how the song makes you feel,
the story it is telling and how the track lingers with you long after the music has finished playing. It was this ethos that the
formidable songwriter took with him when it came to penning the tracks for what has become his debut solo album, a collection of
songs that bring to life stories of outlaws, freedom, cowboys and love, and paint vivid imagery of gun slinging bandits, Australian
history and international cultural spirituality. Andrew Farriss releases his debut self-titled solo album internationally on
today, Friday 19th March 2021 through BMG / BBR.
