Lightning 100 debuts “Spitfire” by INTL

untitled-26
Lightning 100 debuts “Spitfire” by INTL on 100.1 FM.  It’s been nearly one year since fans have heard from the ground-breaking alternative rock outfit INTL, the band has emerged. Teaming up with young hungry producer, Joshua Niles, INTL is proud to announce the release of their single, “Spitfire.”
After releasing their self-titled EP in 2011, INTL went on to release several singles, new material, score multiple spots on several national television shows, and successfully preserver through a name change. This past year the band teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producer, Vance Powell, to promote Universal Audio’s interface, Apollo 16. The band hid away in an effort to master a new and authentic sound. “Our goal and our hope as musicians is to speak truth and enter conversation with anyone who listens,” lead singer Kaleb Jones confesses.
Individually, INTL’s four members are incredibly talented, but collectively, their musicianship and influence is undeniable. Their ingenuity comes through in the distinct brand of rock they have carefully developed over the past few years. INTL has cultivated a sound all their own, a sound that allows them to stand out in a city full of fellow creatives.  Tune in all this week to hear “Spitfire” by INTL on Lightning 100.

Lauren Farrah

971675_553039468079873_846341767_n“Lauren Farrah is a singer-songwriter currently living in Nashville, Tennessee. Let us first put special emphasis on the “singer” half of that title, as Farrah was gifted with a truly lovely voice, a warm velvety alto, as rich as chocolate, as smokey as bourbon. The skill she’s acquired in wielding such a voice is no less striking. Farrah’s singing is passionate with an expressiveness ranging from vulnerable, to commanding, to haunting, permiated by a sweet, nameless sadness.Her tone is that of intense sincerity and earnestness. Certainly she can be playful, but even at play there is a gravity, a certain seriousness, underscoring each line.

The songs and their treatments are kind of a nouveau-Americana fare, with certain overtures toward pop. The arrangements evoke the sense of raw space, the crossing of vast tracts of eart. Across these distances, each instrument calls out, a cry as catchy and melodious as it is mournful.

Farrah has described herself as “just a girl who’s trying to figure out the ‘why’s’ of life.” But, in truth, her writing shows her to be at least equally preoccupied with life’s “how’s” and “ought’s”. Farrah’s songs portray a deep concern with morality, dignity, and integrity. Thesse are brought to the fore by various situations and crises of the soul which challenge and threaten to annul them. Indeed, the many vicissitudes of life- interpersonal struggles, the steady receding of youth and innocence, dissapointment, betrayal despair- make their villainous cameos, while waylaying our heroine in her quest for the ideal. But even in her puzzlement, even when she is lost, Farrah retains the faith of a seeker, if only by the earnestness of her search, the continual grasping for meaning. Like a true pilgrim, she is unswervingly devoted to her
destination, to her ideal. Each doubt, each dissapointment, each dark night of the soul turns out not to be a roadblock, but a signpost, a mileage marker on the road to glory.”

“Great Expectations” is Lauren’s debut EP on River Jones Music label, and is now available on iTunes, and Amazon worldwide!
