Farmhouse Odyssey

FARMHOUSE ODYSSEY is a group of five musicians who believe in music as a guiding and transformative force in the world. Since they formed in 2012 in Arcata, California, their music has emanated from the relationship between their friendship and their lives. Each member brings a unique perspective to the group, coalescing into a whole that is somewhere between progressive rock, jazz fusion, and psychedelia. The resulting music is beyond each individual personality and utterly original.

When FARMHOUSE ODYSSEY create, they do so freely with few boundaries; leaving genres and guidelines aside they simply take the chance to play what they love. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, they endeavor to craft music that pushes the limits of the familiar and resonates as meaningful to them; music that can only be formed from the internalization of the everyday life of these individuals and what their lives can become.

THE WORD

"Farmhouse Odyssey work with great skill and produce an idiosyncratic, stand-alone, wonderful mix of classic progressive rock and folk. "Fertile Ground" is an album full of good ideas and interesting twists, it comes up with beautiful moments and powerful instrumental passages. All of this is at the same time calm, and yet presented with great intensity. For me one of the strongest albums in 2019 in this segment of Progressive Rock."
- BABYBLAUE-SEITEN

"How does one portray dreamscapes? "Fertile Ground” does this. With sophistication, unpredictability, immense musical skill and scope, we are drawn into other dimensions: the Self is found less in hard data, and more in softer, yet more dangerous vistas."
- Stephen Conrad,
PROGRESSIVE ROCK FANATICS
