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 about the environment and cultural questions of survival, the new collection travels deep into the realms of survival of life on the earth.
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 bars 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 music and family musicians bringing their crafts to his country home in southeastern Ohio. His ability and adaptability soon proved his talent on the guitar. Along the way, he picked up some mandolin and fiddle, keyboards, and harmonica. Add a couple of looping and effects pedals, and you practically have a one-man band.
After taking a few years off from playing out, life drew him back into 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 of music.
"...[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
