Fresh and seemingly in his own world, Marc Farre writes dark, poetically understated songs delivered in a penetrating baritone, occasionally singing in fluent French. (He offers fiery interpretations of Gainsbourg and Baudelaire, among his own lyrics.)
Farre’s latest offering, ONE HAND ON THE NIGHT, distills the essence of his style and digs deep into a kind of a transcendent, primeval beat.
Marc Farre’s music carries a European, art-house feel — an enigmatic ambience well paired with the rhythms and magnetic melodies that seem to flow naturally from him. His voice, like his lyrics, is deep, intimate, and intensely compelling.
While Farre’s past association with 20th-century giants Merce Cunningham and John Cage continues to drive his creative vision toward the new, it is his visceral, open-hearted singing that really carries you out onto a tightrope — and leaves you there.
