J.W. Farrell
J.W. Farrell is a solo artist based out of New York City. Born and raised in Bucks County in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Farrell began forming bands with his friends as soon as he started learning guitar, much to the annoyance of anyone within ear shot. During his college years he joined the NYC based pop rock group La La Lush. After two records, a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom, and a US tour culminating in an appearance at SXSW, the band took a permanent hiatus in 2015. During this time, J.W. Farrell began to develop his sound as a solo singer-songwriter. While hibernating in Alexandria, Virginia, he wrote and recorded his debut EP. Taking notes from some of his songwriting heroes, Hamilton Leithauser, Bruce Springsteen and John J. McCauley as well as the sonic influence of some of his favorite bands, The Walkmen, The Band, My Morning Jacket and The Gaslight Anthem, Farrell has created a captivating blend of americana, new wave and rock.

“Alexandria EP” was released 6/10/16 at NYC’s Arlene’s Grocery, accompanied by a music video for the first single “Alexandria.”

In the summer of 2017, J.W. Farrell embarked on his "Little Words" Tour as a solo acoustic act, making stops in Roanoke, Johnson City, Nashville and Philadelphia. During this time Farrell recorded his first live album at Belcourt Taps in Nashville, TN. Released on 11/10 /17 as "Live at Belcourt Taps" this five song collection features stripped down versions of his earliest songs, accompanied with lead guitar by Chuck Haegel of The Tommy Roberts and Teeth.
