Currently working on a FARRINGTON track called "Hey Mr Rock n Roll'.
This track features Keith Slettedahl on vocals, Anthony King on guitars and Fernando Perdomo on bass.
Keith is a former member of L.A. band The 88. The 88 wrote and performed "At Least It Was Here", the theme song for the television series Community. The band co-scored the 2012 film Friends with Kids. The 88 appear on the soundtrack to the 2012 film The Lorax. From 2010 to 2012, the band toured and recorded with the Kinks leader Ray Davies, serving as his opening act and backing Davies for his set.
Fernando Perdomo is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer. He was in the core band for Echo In The Canyon, an all star concert at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. The band backed up Jakob Dylan, Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor.
He has composed and recorded TV music for Honda, Target, McDonalds, Goya, Dunkin Donuts, Toyota, Shameless, and Dexter.
In 2015, Fernando recorded most of the bass and guitars on the acclaimed album "New World” by Dave Kerzner, along with Steve Hackett (Genesis), Keith Emerson (ELP) and Simon Phillips (The Who).
Anthony King is a gifted guitarist/bassist currently touring with Buffy Sainte Marie. He plays a variety of styles including rock, funk, pop, jazz and country. Great to have Anthony's musicality here at Firefly.
With FARRINGTON continuing to write quality material, I look forward to more great recordings with these fine musicians in the future.

In July 2017 I had the opportunity to have engineer Jack Rouben lend his expertise to a couple of recordings by Barefoot Jackson and Farrington.
Jack got his start at the legendary Sunset Sound studio. There he worked on recordings by legendary artists such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, Gloria Gaynor, The Gap Band, Celine Dion and Kenny Loggins, to name a few. Jack taught me a few things about subtractive EQ, compression and mic placement. So cool to hear all the stories and just hang with him. Hopefully he will be back soon!
Also spent some time tracking with ACOT on a new tune. ACOT is an up and coming hip hop artist with a ton of Youtube views and an impressive following.
Gregory Finsley, lead singer of Queen Nation (incredible Queen tribute band) stopped by to sing on a brilliant new track by Farrington.
