Lonnie Farris released 16 songs under his own name between 1962 and 1964. His recordings are incredibly eclectic and draw from all sorts of musical influences. Within this body of work, you’ll find booting saxophone solos, syncopated washboard percussion, and soulful vocalists. The one element holding all of these recordings together is Farris’ accomplished Hawaiian guitar.
He plays with an ease and freedom that is sometimes smooth as silk and sometimes bold and fiery.
