In music there are those special artists that seem to transcend genre and defy categorization. From time to time one hears a voice that can stop you dead in your tracks and shake your very foundation to the core. Mike Farris is that artist and he has that voice. In the early 2000’s after having spent nearly a decade being the front man and main writer for the Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies, Mike Farris began looking for a new musical direction.
In June of 2007 he released the critically acclaimed Salvation in Lights which married old time roots gospel sounds with his own unique arrangements, mainly inspired by New Orleans, Stax and the blues. The music was both spiritual and personal for Mike as it dealt with individual struggle but it also had a commonality that music fans from all walks of life could enjoy.
In 2008 and 2009 Mike Farris and his Roseland Rhythm Revue performed monthly residencies at Nashville’s’ Station Inn and called it “Sunday Night Shout!” The shows had audiences that consisted of people from all walks of life and the goal was to make the crowd feel “excited, delighted and loved.” The official live recording of the Station Inn shows, Shout! Live, was released in 2009 and won the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for “Best Traditional Gospel Album of the Year” in 2010.

Donald Miller became best known through his New York times bestseller, Blue Like Jazz, the story of his experience at Reed College, voted at that time as “the most godless campus in the country.” Since then Don has written other best sellers: Searching for God knows What and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years (the story of his writing of the screenplay for Blue Like Jazz-the movie). In the fall of 2012, Don created The Storyline Conference, a two-day event to help individuals, churches and business staff write a better story for their life and work.
