The past few months have been exciting and hectic.
Fitness model/influencer/athlete Michie Peachie did a voice over session here in October for Total Fitness and Nutrition. This session involved Michie reading instructions for 125 different exercises for a workout app called fitplanapp. Michie was a total pro and really cool to work with. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzFjKRo5uNU0soTi9K0MWIQ
Tracking more great songs from FARRINGTON with help from Nikki Paige, Kai Danzberg, Tatianna Gallardo and Anthony King.
Nikki added her sweet voice to a tune called "Violins" and really helped make this song a winner. Nikki is super talented, sweet and humble. She nailed her parts in one or two takes. Nikki Paige (@nikkipaigenarage) • Instagram photos and videos
Tatianna, who has worked with 4x Garmmy-nominated producer, Vincent Berry II sang on the chorus of FARRINGTON'S "Stones". Just gorgeous. Tatianna Gallardo - Wonder What It's Like (Official Music Video ...
Kai Danzberg, 25-yr old power-pop singer/songwriter/guitarist from Germany added his great multi-layered vocal harmonies to "Stupid Plastic War", "Music Is The Drug", "Long Way To Nowhere" and "Violins". Congrats to Kai, who recently signed a deal with Big Stir Records. I was honored to play drums on two tracks from his current album, "Let Me Know", featuring Lisa Mychols and "Reach You Somehow", on which FARRINGTON added a superb guitar solo.

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. Keith Slettedahl - Wikipedia

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. Anthony King Guitar/Bass | ReverbNation
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. https://soundcloud.com/acot_acot
Gregory Finsley, lead singer of Queen Nation (incredible Queen tribute band) stopped by to sing on a brilliant new track by Farrington.
