Australian Musician’s Greg Phillips chats with Australian songwriting legend Andrew Farriss about his new EP Love Makes The World (out October 2).
As the main songwriter and a founding member of iconic Australian pop rock band INXS, Andrew Farriss and his band mates shared the success of more than 50 million record sales, Grammy nominations and an induction into the ARIA Hall Of Fame. Outside of INXS, Andrew is revered in industry circles for his songwriting nuance, having written, produced and performed music for acts such as Yothu Yindi, Tom Jones, Tania Kernaghan and Jenny Morris to name a few.
With the release of his five-track EP, Love Makes The World, songwriter Andrew Farriss is exploring the nuances of human relationships and stepping outside of his musical comfort zone. Unafraid of taking risks, the internationally acclaimed musician has teamed up to pen some poignant co-writes on the release, exploring themes such as belonging, mental health and suicide, love, conservation and the evolution of humankind. Recorded across Andrew’s home studio at his North West NSW farm, and the Beaird Music Group Studio in Nashville, the songs were written between Australia, Nashville and London. The EP also features some special partnerships with his great friends Suze DeMarchi, Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams), Ciaran Gribbin and Jon Stevens.
