Dan Farmer grew up in the mountains of South Carolina and the foothills of Alabama. His first memories of music are all day church singings, mountain gospel, traditional country and bluegrass. From these experiences, Farmer developed his own sense of songwriting. This sense and style grew as he honed his musical skills performing throughout Alabama and along the Gulf Coast. Hi influences include Guy Clark and John Prine.
Farmer appears regularly with the popular band Crooked Road, and has performed among Nashville songwriting circles at the famed Bluebird Café and Douglas Corners. Farmer also performs with friend and co-writer Janet Hall O'Neil. The Hall/Farmer duo has played to sold out audiences at Birmingham's Red Mountain Theatre Cabaret and The Local Color Café in Springville, Alabama. They've also been featured at WorkPlay and The Moonlight Music Café in Birmingham.
