Rick Faris – “Deep River”
In his first single since the Dark Shadow Recording LP debut Breaking in Lonesome (2019), Rick Faris brings his signature guitar picking and haunting vocals on the new track, “Deep River.” In a familiar bluegrass theme of love, loss, and reflection—the song’s subject laments the broken and finds his soul searching in the many metaphorical options the rushing tide and deep waters of the river offer. Flowing together with lyrical expertise, the stringed performances on “Deep River” are perfection, exactly what we’ve come to expect from this custom guitar maker, once-member of Special Consensus, and now primed to be a standout solo act.
