The Review of the Band Called Somebody’s Darling
Hot Amber Farris should be somebody’s darling. She is a gutsy vocalist & her voice is bold. Yes, Amber sounds bluesy, twangy, & darn good. HA-HA!!! Her band backs her up with quite a mixture of country-rock, Americana, soul, & blues. It certainly accompanies her effortlessly cool voice.
Of course, Amber is the vocalist and one of the guitarists. The other band members are David Ponder (lead guitarist), Michael Talley (keyboardist), Wade Coffer (bassist), & Nate Wedan (drummer).
They Have Definitely Paid Dues and Continue to
The band has been writing, doing numerous gigs, and doing loads of demos before they released their debut 2009 album Somebody’s Darling. I certainly appreciate the realness of that album’s cover.
The photo says a lot without a doubt. They do tons of shows weekly. In the last 5 years or so, they have done over 500, impressive shows. AY!!!!!!!! Way to go, band. I remember them when I was back in my home state of Texas.
Amber is a Good Lady Who Deserves So Much More
The band put the raucous 2012 album Jank City Shakedown on the market. That album starts off with the song Cold Hands. It’s a wonderful song. The song Wedding Clothes will make you root for that lady Amber consistently.
The song Keep Shaking is also great for the ears. She is releasing a lot for sure and I wish her well always. The song Back to the Bottle won’t make anyone do that though. HA-HA! Her lyrics are honest and your heart will beat faster after listening to the song.
Their Music Shift Gears At Times
The track My Own Medicine is slightly lighter but still just as hardcore. COO! Especially, lyrically. She will be okay and I rate her highly. The track Maybe is once again about her coming from the depths of her nice heart.
The track Pretty Faces hits hard too. The song Weight of the Fear definitely makes the band points clear. They come to express themselves musically & uniquely. They are road warriors & they have sacrificed a lot. She lives in a house with 2 of her bandmates. I bet that they take turns doing chores. HA!
The track Pretty Leaves is sonic but not like the hedgehog. HA-HA-HA!! The ending one The Middle slowly builds to a tough, rocking song. Amber comes strong once again with the lyrics then gives the rest of the band cues to make the song uptempo. WHOA! CUCKOO!
It gets that way about 3:44 minutes into the song. HA!! The band Somebody’s Darling will do another magnificent show at the club Trees. They did perform on August 23, 2014. They had their album release party there too.
They Go Strong Regardless
They did put the LP Adult Roommates on the market on September 16, 2014. Their single Bad Bad is available now & it is amazing but not like Spider-Man. HA!
I sincerely give the band plenty of props because they have truly earned them surely. They will continue doing so well. Please do not confuse this band with the other band Somebody’s Darling. HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!
The band divulges in some ways like Wilco. Amber hits so hard like Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd, Tracy Chapman, Sheryl Crow, Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Rosalie Hill, Lucinda Williams, and Caitlin Rose. Peace to all country ladies and gritty ladies. OOH!
