“At the age of 15, while still in high school, Allie Farris formed her first band and begun playing small coffee shops and venues around her hometown of Flower Mound, Texas. In the fall of 2007, Allie made her first live studio recording at the Dallas Sound Lab, which was released the following May(“Songs Written Upside Down“). In 2008 through early 2009, Allie performed at well-known Dallas venues like Six Flags Over Texas, the Brooklyn Jazz Cafe, Dunn Bros. Coffee, and the Maximedia Studios Live Soundstage. She also won first prize in the Gorilla Productions Battle of the Bands, earning the opportunity to record a full album at the prestigious Maximedia Studios of Dallas. The Album, All You Can Eat, was released in June of 2009. Allie Farris (age 21) moved to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2011 to begin her life as a full-time singer/songwriter. She has already had the opportunity to perform in Nashville venues like Hotel Indigo, Pick’s in Nashville, and the Vanderbilt Hotel. She is currently working on her new EP recording in Nashville, to be released in early 2012.”

Nashville based singer-songwriter Allie Farris heads to Pittsburgh on Wednesday in support of her new “EP” to play the Pittsburgh Mennonite Church along with locals Heather Kropf and Brad Yoder. I want to thank her for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Allie. I assume you picked up the new ‘deluxe version’ of the recently released, “Rainy Day Music“? Such an underrated album.
