Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Robert Connely Farr:
I studied architecture at Auburn University, spending a few years at the nonprofit student run design build Rural Studio working on the Musicman House and the Hale Country Animal Shelter. Since 2017, I've been mentored in the Bentonia Style of the Delta Blues by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes. I grew up in Bolton, Mississippi, a small town just south of the Delta where Charley Patton and Sam Chatmon are from. I released "Dirty South Blues" in 2019 - then I got cancer and had to have an emergency surgery, during which time me and the boys had a few sessions in Vancouver at Hipposonic Studios (Little Mountain Studio's for you music novices - some of my favorite rock and roll albums were recorded there!) to lay down "Country Supper". This year we also release "Gasoline" (B-Sides & Rarities) & "Live In EastVan"


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Robert Connely Farr:
yeah - I grew up listening to rock n roll - I had every Kiss album, GNR, Ratt, Crue, ACDC - I loved it all. Music just hit a spot in me that I can't really explain. It was personal, mine - no-one could tell me what to like - in fact I couldn't help what I liked - that was part of the excitement & it still is! Anyway, I remember being around 12, out in the country in the house where my Papaw grew up north of Bolton - making a blood pact in writing (that we still have) with my little brother & cousin that as soon as we all got old enough, we were heading to Los Angeles to being in a band. I guess I can't help but wonder of on a fundamental level this started it all - you know, that idea of putting the energy out there to make something happen...


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Robert Connely Farr:
Purple Mountains "Nights That Won’t Happen"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?
