If you haven't yet heard about Somebody's Darling, an inventive rock band from Dallas, Texas, chances are you will soon. The group has been together now for nearly five years, and over the course of two albums and over 500 shows, Amber and the boys have grown up together, and through it all they've come up with something truly special. Lead singer Amber Farris' stripped down but smooth vocals reveal an enigmatic but warm vulnerability balanced with a cool confidence. She's been compared to a range of iconic female singers such as Janis Joplin and Melissa Etheridge, but has a voice that is distinctly her own. Its clear this band loves to play live, and Farris' dynamic sound supports deft lyrics that layer fantastically over clever melodies and bluesy grooves. Through multiple headlining tours, numerous festivals including SXSW 2013, and supporting great artists like Shovels & Rope, Lucero and Divine Fits, the band has cut its teeth and developed a truly unique sound. Somebody's Darling draws on a range of vintage influences, but just as their contemporary heroes, bands like My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Dawes, and the Black Keys, these five friends strive to create and perform exceptional songs that are at the spearhead of modern rock 'n' roll.
Nearly two years after the release of the band’s last album, “Jank City Shakedown”, the band is emerging from the trenches with the recordings for an album that the band believes is better than anything its done before. The new album was recorded in February 2014, at the Echo Lab in Denton, TX, all on 2" analog tape, with producer Beau Bedford and producer/sound engineer Matt Pence (Midlake, Jason Isbell, Glossary, Will Johnson, Jay Farrar).
