MUCH LONGER BIO: Bob Farley and Lynn Perdzock have been working on their new CD, HAVE FOLK, WILL ROCK, since November 2018. It is their most ambitious project to date, with 17 songs, including nine new recordings and eight remixed versions of their 2017 digital EPs. From love songs (of course) to cautionary tales of survival, the new collection delves deeper into their feelings for each other and the world than ever before.
Lynn's background in music began as a child when she learned to play guitar for church. As her musical tastes grew, her song-writing matured, and soon enough she was sharing songs at local restaurants and upscale venues in her then-home states of Wyoming and Utah.
A chance encounter in 2011 brought her to an open mic show in Ohio, and that's where she met future husband Bob Farley.
Bob grew up with bluegrass, country, and rockabilly music. Various family members often brought their musical talents to visit his country home in southeastern Ohio. At the age of eight, he began plunking on a guitar that had been left at the house. Through the years, he picked up some mandolin and fiddle, keyboards, and harmonica. Armed with a couple of looping and effects pedals, he can pretty much be a one-man band.
After taking a few years off from playing out, Bob was drawn to the coffee shops to play music. It was there he met the woman of his dreams, his future wife. (See above.) Soon, they began writing, singing and recording songs together, and that's where you'll find them today: on the Raggedy Edge between the music of the past and the future.
"...[Lynn and Bob] are so easy to work with. They're always prepared and professional, but even more than that, the public loves them!" ~Sue Shay, Adult Programming, Washington-Centerville Public Library
