The Farm Inc
The Farm is very unique in the way they came together. A lot of bands are put together but The Farm found each other. Damien Horne, Krista Marie and Nick Hoffman wrote their first single and top 20 hit ‘Home Sweet Home’ in a writing session with Danny Myrick on a lake in Nashville, TN and came together as a band at that moment. Krista and Damien brought their guitars while Nick brought a fiddle and the rest was history, they say. The second single ‘Be Grateful’ will hit home for just about everyone. It reminds us that we all have problems but someone out there has it worse than you.
“Every time you think you’ve got it bad, you can find someone who’s got it worse…… We complain about how much it’s gonna cost us to fill our 20 somethin’ thousand dollar cars, living in the land of milk and honey, it’s so easy to forget how lucky we are.”
The first 3 tracks of the album ‘Farm Party’ ‘Home Sweet Home’ and ‘Sweet Sweet Sunshine’ are fun, upbeat dance songs with heavy fiddle from Nick Hoffman. Slower tracks on the album include ‘Be Grateful’, ‘Nowhere Road’, ‘That 100 Miles’, and ‘Every Time I Fall in Love’ which showcases the amazing vocals of the entire band. ‘Nowhere Road’ has an R&B vibe that just feels right for Damien’s smooth, soulful voice while ‘That 100 Miles’ is perfect for Nick’s rough and gritty tone. Krista’s range and beautiful voice really rounds out the sound of the band. Her solo song on the album ‘Every Time I Fall in Love’ is well written by Sarah Buxton and tells a story of a girl breaking all her relationship rules when she falls in love.
The other great tracks on the album include ‘That Train I’m On’, ‘Walkin’, ‘Little Boat’ and ‘Fresh of the Farm’. Each has a very unique, organic sound that no other band could convey as well. The whole album is filled with very fun, genuine, story-telling songs that should be heard by any country music lover. I’d give this album 5 stars.
These songs are even better when performed live so if you get a chance to see them, take that chance. You won’t regret it!
