Justin Farren
Justin Farren is an acclaimed yet unassuming singer songwriter from Sacramento California where he lives in a house that he literally built with his own two hands, about which he says, "it's like living in a museum of my own mistakes".

When it comes to his songs, Justin Farren is nothing short of a master craftsman. With a humble and humorous perspective, Justin paints lyrical pictures that are firmly rooted in the reality of day to day life, often expressing his own doubts and experiences. His songs are real, thoughtful, undeniable, fun and often compared to those of Dan Bern, Greg Brown, Paul Simon, and Jack Johnson. His guitar playing is lively, intricate, and seemingly boundless. The Sacramento New & Review describes him as "The storyteller with an impeccable voice, a guitar and a head full of funny, tender and engaging observation".

Justin has played numerous shows on California's west coast and has been honored to open for national artists including Bret Dennen, Hot Buttered Rum, Matt Costa, Jackie Greene, Bhi Bhiman and Amber Rubarth. He was voted "Best Lyricist" in 2010 by Sacramento Magazine and and "Best Musician" in 2009 and 2010 by the Sacramento News and Review. Justin's song "Midnight at The Fair" was voted the "2012 SONG OF THE YEAR" at The West Coast Songwriters, Berkeley Chapter Playoffs. He'll be heading back to the Freight & Salvage to participate in the state-wide GRAND PLAYOFF event this August Justin recently wrapped up a spring tour which included shows in Sacramento, Carson City, Petaluma, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Ana and Stockton. He will continue to perform regionally through the fall.
