As an emerging singer-songwriter in New York and Nashville, Farrell did not know her own power – nor how to harness it. According to a biography provided by talent agency Silverleaf Booking, she had always loved singing, turning heads with her loud voice from a young age in her hometown of Harrisburg, PA. Farrell knew early on that she was supposed to write songs, perform and connect with people. This is exactly what she did for several years – writing and producing a number of independent recordings, gaining experience and confidence by touring across the country to support her music. Like so many new artists, she was proud of her early songs, but the material wasn’t completely âher,â she hadn’t found her voice yet.
Driving across the country as a touring singer-songwriter can be a lonely proposition, with plenty of time to think behind the wheel, to get to know each other. It was during this journey of self-discovery that Farrell realized that his artistic voice was actually the voice in his own head.
â’Conversations with myself’â came out of an amazing time in my life, “said Farrell.” I was no longer willing to put up with some familiar types of pain. It all started with checking myself every day, over a cup of coffee in the morning. It was through this kind of meditation that I began the healing journey of a very broken heart. I am still on this journey. I’m still talking to myself, trying to understand more deeply who I amâ¦ and I’m learning how grateful I really am for all I have and all I can give. “
After two years of writing and touring, Farrell recently teamed up with production duo Nate and Dan Monea at their Little C studios in Canton, Ohio. The Moneas have helped her express the full range of her emotions: from grief to healing, from injustice to empowerment, from anxiety to trust, Farrell shares it all.
With his powerful new music, Farrell aspires to be heard for many years to come – one conversation at a time, one song at a time.
âLook into the deeper, darker parts of yourself,â Farrell said. “Be uncomfortable. Accept all of this with love, compassion and gratitude for where you have been. I believe that from this place your dreams begin to become your reality.”
