In the company of European-influenced musicians like Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, and Nick Cave. A throaty voice, highly poetic lyrics and a kinetic band behind him. Compelling.”

— WILLIAM RUHLMANN, ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Deep as a whisper, urgent as a house on fire, Marc Farre’s music has the power to get under your skin.

Indie folk artist Marc Farre delivers cinematic art songs shot through with a raw, poetic energy. His voice is deep, intimate, intense. (Critics call it “mesmerizing.”) Open-hearted and hallucinatory, his music pulls you in like an art-house film.

Though he is based in Northern California, Marc Farre’s French background imbues his music with a European, art-house feel — a seductive ambience perfectly paired with his otherworldly lyrics and magnetic melodies.

While his past association with 20th-century giants Merce Cunningham and John Cage continues to drive Farre's creative vision toward the new, it is his visceral singing that really carries you out onto a tightrope — and leaves you there.

Marc Farre has that certain something. A well-trained croon and a presence that Leonard Cohen would be proud of. ”

Dark, hypnotic, intensely soulful... the musical equivalent of an art-house film.”

— MARY LYNN MITCHAM (GANNETT NEWSPAPERS)

Marc Farre drizzles his super-deep vocals over rustic, Giant Sand–style arrangements, often singing in French.”
