PREMIERE: Courtney Farren–Nothing Like It

Courtney Farren - Nothing Like It (cover)

New York singer-songwriter Courtney Farren just released the first single/video of her debut album of the same name–Nothing Like It.  This six-track LP features guitar and piano songs recorded this past spring, and officially releases 6 October. New York City is Farren’s current home base, but she spent years on inner pursuits moving around various northern California locations. Upon moving to New York, she teamed up with Brett Sullivan of American Anymen, who turned out to be a good friend, quickly helping to organize/book shows and make videos to support her pursuit of art as a career. Courtney’s emotionally driven and heartfelt songwriting and performances lend themselves to her current live setup of guitar and vocals. Her words are fueled by honesty and a sense of urgency.

The LP is mixed by both Farren and Sullivan, the latter of whom also designed the front cover and the video.

So, if you are keen on indie, antifolk, acoustic style music like Daughter, Birdy or Marissa Nadler, you can catch her perform live in the following clubs, and there’s Europe too! Find Courtney Farren on Facebook.

About Mike D 282 Articles
Hey people I'm Mike D from Athens GR (43). I'm a sound engineer, radio producer, and certainly a music "freak." I couldn't be anything else, you see: I grew up in a musical home (my father was a composer), and wanted to be a rock-star but wasn't patient enough to study music. Instead, I studied the technical stuff and went really "nuts" when I started writing articles about the bands and artists I love. It all started back in 2002 in a printed magazine (Sound Maker - RIP) and I still do it because I really like sharing my libraries, discotheque, info, connections, knowledge, and all. I'm involved in all "waves" music (new wave/darkwave/post-punk/shoegaze), punk, industrial, EBM, alternative rock, indie, electronic, avant-garde/ experimental/ freestyle...but on the other hand I can easily throw a classical CD in the player, or a jazzy tune, or...ok you get it: Music! I'd like to read your comments on my writing because you know how it goes, and you all know the glorious song by Placebo,"Without You I'm Nothing"...Thanx and enjoy Freedom and Music, Loud!
