Somebody’s Darling (Dallas, TX / Nashville, TN)

Their name may sound like a soft lullaby, but Somebody’s Darling are anything but sleepy. A little bit Gary Clark Jr. with a hint of ZZ Ward, the talented five piece jam bluesy rock ‘n’ roll tunes that are big and commanding in every possible way – from lead singer Amber Farris’ impressive vocal chops and wild blonde hair to the band’s ballsy rhythm section and grooving guitar licks. Now together for seven years and three albums, their most recent release, 2014’s Adult Roommates, takes a mature and sometimes stark look at what it means to be a working band, from the on-stage chemistry to the crazy off-stage antics – summarized perfectly in the smoky fifth track, “End of the Line”, where Farris croons, “This is the oldest we have been. This is the youngest we will ever be.” The Dallas band recently relocated to Nashville to tour and write the next record.”
