Album Notes
The Music
The Mike Farley Band has the feel of all your favorite modern rock bands -- The Gin Blossoms, Big Head Todd, Better Than Ezra -- while being led by a powerful singer-songwriter ala David Gray and The Pat McGee Band. Quite simply, you will be humming these songs after one sitting with The Mike Farley Band.

The Background
Mike started playing in bands at age 14 in his native Long Island, where he was in the bands Stratomatics and ONQ. While still living in NY Mike studied voice with Katie Agresta, who has taught Jon Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox, Phoebe Snow, Paul
Simon, Joe Jackson and countless others. Mike released his first solo CD in 1997, Right This Time, second in 1999, On the Edge of Somewhere (which was JPFolks album of the year in 2000) and of course the current halfaworldaway in 2000. His influences include: Counting Crows, Better Than Ezra, Goo Goo Dolls, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Bryan Adams, Jon Bon Jovi.

The Word
"They are songs that sound instantly familiar, like the guy who looks like a high-school pal you can't quite place or the new jeans that feel like you've worn them for years."
- The Akron Beacon Journal

"Yes. Songs. Hooks. Introspection. Those are the things that Mike Farley offers. If you can appreciate real songs about real people, you will have a tough time taking this out of your CD player. It is still firmly lodged in mine."
- The Village Buzz

"This [halfaworldaway] is a great album!"
- Mike Wall, KMXT

I love it!
This CD is excellent, and I'm not just saying that because I slept with Mike. He's got a great voice, the band sounds awesome and the tunes are really catchy. I only wish the rest of the world new about Mike Farley so I could hear him on the radio every day, and be able to say "I knew him when..."

Mcbrisket Biscuits

deborah E. booer informed me on what a great cd this is. and i must say, mc tiki, martha stewart DOT COM, sweet burpee, and jessie are all right this cd is nothing but shiggity shiggity shwa goodness. i liked it so much, i almost got a nose bleed. but my cd is pret-tier.

The Big Q
Marlyce, I agree. The Big Q stands for Quality. I'm all over this album like Oprah on a canned ham. The news from Geneva is that this CD ROCKS! Mom'll have a bird if you don't buy it now.

Marty Pluth

Superb CD
The newest release from these guys is incredible! Mike's voice, wrapped up with excellent music and great production provide the total package. The songwriting is exceptional...on any given day i have some part of 1 of the dozen songs stuck in my head. The disc is for every day, with a mix of emotional highs and lows to suit any mood. Definately a must buy!

We miss Mike in Northeast OH!
Simple brillant lyrics. I saw Mike the first time at one of my co-workers house on his back porch (bought halfaworldaway then and he signed it for then my 13 daughter - her first "concert"). Also saw the band many times in Akron and Cleveland OH. Awesome!!!!

It's Just What I Kneeded (Just What I Kneeded)!!
Janet Partial told me all about this CD. Her heavenly daddy recommended it to help with her devotionals. Give it a klisten.

Forest Elf

jamocha almond awesome
Even though I'm only two inches tall, and a lima bean's a meal for me, I know good music when I hear it. I keep his cd in my backpack (made of bark) and never take it out. I always listen to it, it goes well with scotch bonnets. I love it long time.


This cd rules
This cd is great. If you are into bands like Dave Matthews Band or O.A.R. you should definitely buy this cd. All the songs on it are great. The Mike Farley Band really knows how to write great songs!

Sev Endust

Rockport Colony this cd right NOW!
Nella Cuchina Norton! Need we say again the excellence of this cd? I'm sure Mike Farley, and his band will delight in our work here. Someone must really hate these cans! I gotta go get a peice of coffee and have a cheese deluxe with a side of mayshweeohnaise. Go get this cd because it's almoist the end of the show!


Aloha Ya'll
Now Deborah E. Booer, I want you to know that I highly recommend this cd. You may concentrate in bankruptcy law, but Precious Roy wants you all to know... "This is Precious Roy....and the people at the bank call me Marty" "Yeah, but Precious, what about the Saskewatch Feeders?" "Buy my birdfeeders!!!" "No, Precious, they're Sakewatch Feeders." "You guys are SUCKAS!"
