Farriss Talks EP and More on SiriusXM’s ‘80s on 8’
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The stage is set and the wait is finally over for singer/songwriter Andrew Farriss to release his solo EP, ‘Love Makes The World.’ Drawing the curtain on a special release that serves as an exclusive insight into Andrew as a songwriter, this EP provides healing melodies that allow listeners to relax and forget about the unsettling factors of 2020. ‘Love Makes The World’ gives fans a peek into Farriss’ solo efforts; a project the esteemed songwriter has been working on for more than a decade.
“I was actually going to release my self titled LP, ‘Andrew Farriss’ before the pandemic hit (which I now plan to release in 2021) and plans shifted. The five-song concept of ‘Love Makes the World’ was born by accident as the world was and still is struggling with the pandemic and trying to contain it,” shares Farriss.
Farriss will host his Pac Jams ’80s playlist on SiriusXM’s ‘80s on 8’ Friday, October 2nd at Noon ET / 9 am PT with replays happening at 8 pm ET, Saturday, October 3rd at 1 am, 10 am and 10 pm ET, Sunday at 3 pm ET and Monday 10 am ET to reminisce a few hits from his days as keyboardist with the world-famous band INXS and discuss his solo EP. ‘Love Makes The World,’ is released through BMG worldwide and is available to stream and download on all digital services today!
