When I first heard Mike Farris' CD, Shine For All the People, I was immediately drawn to the gospel-flavored music he channels so authentically. When I met him, I connected with him on a spiritual level. This Nashville-based guy uses music as a healing force for himself as a recovering addict and as a way to serve others. Joined by pianist Paul Brown, he told his story in a humble and moving way and performed a couple of songs, including Mary Gauthier's "Mercy Now," in our studio session.
