Who is Farrell Spence?
In April 2007 she released her first album, A Town Called Hell. It was received well and garnered positive reviews from various UK, Irish and American music magazines who focus on the Americana/Bluegrass scene and artists within it.
Spence has performed to houses in her hometown of Vancouver as well as in Ireland, the UK and Italy. In Vancouver in 2008 she joined an ensemble band with Trish Klein and Frazey Ford of The Be Good Tanyas, Simon Kendall of Doug and The Slugs, Rob Wilson, Mark Beatty, Khari McClelland and John Raham for a series of live gospel shows titled The Sweet Sounds Gospel Show.
In June 2008 Spence moved to Cork, Ireland to write the songs for a new CD in a new environment. She worked with several Irish musicians from Eoghan Regan and David Murphy, to famed Dublin slide-guitar player, NC Lawlor. While she wrote most of the material for her second CD, Song for the Sea, in Ireland, in the end she decided to work with Italian guitar player and lyricist, Francesco Forni, to complete the project. The two had found a sound and a tone together that was unrivalled in previous shows and recordings.
