Salvation In Lights

from the manufacturer

Salvation in Lights (INO Records) is a traveling tent revival of an album, working its way up the banks of the Mississippi River from New Orleans through Memphis and onto points north. Recorded at the same Nashville house-studio where White StripesRaconteurs leader Jack White recorded Loretta Lynns award winning Van Lear Rose album, Farris sophomore solo effort uses the musical language of spirituals, timeless stories of struggle, some of which are centuries-old slave spirituals, and soul to tell a uniquely redemptive story.

Those who remember Mike Farris as the frontman for 90s hard rockers the Screamin Cheetah Wheelies will do a double take when they hear this unexpectedly moving comeback. The singer has radically overhauled his image, shifting from gin-soaked frontman to gospel shouter on this roof-raising release. What hasnt changed is Farriss powerful voice, even more potent since he cleaned up from various excesses in 2004. While the appropriately titled Salvation in Lights is a drastic musical departure from his previous bands swaggering, boozy approach, its also a logical use of his soulful vocals and candid personality. The singer delivers the goods on a handful of rearranged traditionals such as Oh Mary Dont You Weep, but when he rips into Sam Cookes A Change Is Gonna Come, the song shimmers with a passion that nearly matches the original, and thats saying a lot. The oozing, swampy Devil Dont Sleep, the restrained funker Cant No Grave Hold My Body Down, and the Memphis-thumping Selah! Selah! add to the rousing, rootsy R and B groove. Farris is unexpectedly convincing throughout and obviously inspired as he keeps the faith on this stirring but not preachy album. Hes accompanied by horns and a tough yet restrained band with righteous female backing vocals that perfectly position these tunes between heaven and earth. He testifies on his Staples Singers cover that he wants to take you there, and by the time the album closes with Im Gonna Get There, youll gladly follow wherever he leads.
