ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In keeping the spirit of America alive, Chris Farmer has released a cd single with two different versions of "The Star Spangled Banner." Utilizing his extensive experience as the former music director of America's band, The Beach Boys, Chris has recorded a doo-wop and traditional version of the American classic.

Chris Farmer's musical career is rich with big name acts. A bass player, guitarist, pianist, and vocalist, Farmer was the bass player and vocalist for the legendary Beach Boys from 1995 - 2007, and was their musical director and vocal arranger since 1999. Skilled at singing tight, complex vocal harmonies, over his tenure with The Beach Boys he has had the pleasure to sing every part in their vocal stack; the leads, falsetto, and middle harmony parts of their famous vocal structure. In the 90's, he was the musical director, bassist and vocalist for groups such as Jan & Dean, Good Vibrations - a tribute to The Beach Boys, and Rhino recording artists The Belair Bandits.

Although a multi-instrumentalist, Farmer's voice is his main instrument. Chris is a classically trained vocalist who, early in his career, appeared on stage in musical theater and opera. He was the featured vocalist in the acapella quartet "Double Date" that performed regularly at Universal Studios Hollywood in the 1990's.

Chris also has vocal credits on a number of TV and film projects, including "Bay Watch Nights" and "The New Gidget". During the 1980's, his projects included musical director/bassist/ vocalist for Jack Wagner, helping propel his hit recording "All I Need" to the number 2 spot on the Billboard charts. Other 80's gigs included music supervisor and bassist for the "Legends of Doo-Wop" and "Cavalcade of Stars" shows, playing behind such greats as Sam Moore of Sam and Dave, David Ruffin of the Temptations, The Drifters, The Diamonds, Al Wilson, Brenton Wood, The Flamingos, and many others of 50's and 60's era. TV appearances over the years have included the daytime drama "General Hospital", being part of the first TV show to feature a rock band, and the very successful "Full House", featuring John Stamos. Recently, Chris made an appearance on the TV show "ER" as a band member in John Stamos' character "Dr. Gates" band.
