Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Chris Farren is the frontman for Naples, FL’s indie punk outfit Fake Problems. With Fake Problems, Chris has released three full length albums and a handful of splits and EP’s. In more recent years, Farren has been branching out and diving head first into other projects. Antarctigo Vespucci, his fuzzy pop project with former Bomb The Music Industry mastermind Jeff Rosenstock, hit the ground running with an album, an EP and US tour within months of each other.
Beyond collaborations, Chris Farren has stayed busy touring and recording music solo. In December he “surprise-released” (like Beyonce, duh) the endearingly lo-fi but not-too-cute all original Christmas album “Like a Gift From God or Whatever”, benefiting the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Earlier this year Chris started boutique label Boyfriend Island – with the first release being his “Where U Are” EP, three new songs recorded at home and on tour in Australia.
