Folk tunes, meandering lyrics and a chance to reflect

March 20, 2014

Local folk artist John Faraone has recently released a six-track EP, “Houses,” and is beginning to rise in the Rhode Island music scene. He is next playing at AS220 in Providence on March 25.

“Playing the first open mike night, I was terrified and I kind of just wanted to go home,” said Faraone of his first experiences as an original artist. “Then I did it, and it ended up turning out way better than what I had in mind.”
