Eric Ian Farmer & Ady Martinez lead an excavation of hope, peace, purpose, and love through song featuring Bob Hart (guitar), Denise Strayer (accordion), Elizabeth Webb (vocals), Josh Troup (drums), and Mickey Klein (bass).
Eric Ian Farmer has returned to his birthplace of State College sharing his songs about relationships, social awareness, and finding one’s path in life while keeping alive classics by artists like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, and Bob Marley. Eric learned how to become one with a song from Bonnie Carter and David Williams, singers in the church of his childhood just across the North Carolina state line in Danville, Virginia.
