About this album

“In Passing” is a collection of songs written by John Farrell between the fall of 2008 and the spring of 2009. The work came out of fifteen different songs and ideas Farrell had, though these were the six that seemed to fit best together in creating one specific mood or theme. Many of the songs actually bleed into one another to further push that concept. The title “In Passing” embodies the sort of parenthetic disposition Farrell had put himself in through out the months he spent writing these songs. He was in between work, school, composing for independent films, and also struggling to keep his band Voodoo Youth alive while simultaneously joining up with Chicago faves The Innocent to play guitar. So this EP was kind of a way of saying “by the way, this is also what I’ve been working on.”John Farrell has been writing songs since he was in high school, but this is the first time he has put any sort of organization behind a particular collection of songs with out a band backing him.

Other than the tasteful beats of drummer Kyle Gibson (The Skies We Built, Voodoo Youth), the EP was both composed and performed by Farrell, himself. Gibson can also be credited for creative consulting through out the process. For financial purposes Farrell also recorded, engineered, and mixed the EP himself. The EP was mastered by Jon Clardy, who has worked with John Farrell successfully on a number of projects over the last five years or so.
