The 9 Songwriter Series: A Benefit for the Garbers RESCHEDULED for APRIL 21st! 

If you can only make it to ONE show this year, THIS is the show to come to.  Not only are we playing at Jammin Java with some incredible songwriters and Grammy winners, but all the proceeds and love go to the Garber family in their time of need! It really is a KILLER line up which includes Justin Trawick, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, Luke Brindley, Michael Clem, Todd Wright, Kevin Dudley, Victoria Vox and US! 
Founded in 2008 by singer/songwriter Justin Trawick, "The 9 Songwriter Series" is a touring songwriter collective and live show based in Washington, DC. The show was created with the idea of nine artists getting together and combining their talents in order to play in nicer clubs and to larger amounts of people. Each installment features nine solo singer/songwriters performing together in a unique and captivating format, telling stories, and often sitting in each each other and making up music on the spot.  Where else can you hear almost 30 songs from nine different artists in one evening and often for only $20? To date, over 200 different artists have participated in "The 9", at shows in DC, Baltimore, Annapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Fairfield, Boston, Richmond, Charlottesville, Charlotte, Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
This really is going to be an amazing event and you don't want to miss it! Tickets are selling fast so make sure to get yours HERE before they are gone! 

January Stories and Shows! 

The Holidays were quite the whirlwind for us, but we're ready to go for 2014 and have some great shows lined up!
First, you can catch us this Saturday (1/18) at Ebenezer's Coffeehouse telling the stories behind our songs, along with host Tiffany Thompson and DC native Phillip Noss. This is a FREE show, but a tip jar will be passed around and they sure are appreciated!
Next, on January 30th we will be playing at the DC Hard Rock Cafe with Driven to Clarity and The Raised by Wolves! This is a charity event that supports PinkJams and breast cancer awareness, so we hope to see all of you there!

November Newsletter Recap 

It's starting to get chilly outside and the threat of snow is lingering in the air! That can only mean one thing......it's time for your Holiday Party! Did you know that we can be hired to play music at YOUR holiday event?! There isn't much we love more than playing private events, and we already have FOUR, yes, that's right, FOUR weddings booked already for next year! You can check out more info here and shoot us an email with any questions!

Remember when we were begging for you votes to get us featured in Deli Magazine? Well, we didn't win, but they still wrote a GREAT article about us and our show at the Hamilton, and we were on the front page of the blog for a week! You can check out that article here: http://nyc.thedelimagazine.com/15525/dcs-faraway-live-hamilton-1023

We had wonderful shows at both the NOVA BrewFest AND The Hamilton, and we want to give a BIG thanks to everyone who came out to see us (especially our super fan Christopher, who drove all the way from Richmond to show his support!). A fellow musician/photographer friend of ours, Stefanie Ambrose, was kind enough to come out and take some photos of our show at the Hamilton. Check out one of favorites below! You can check out more of her work on her blog: http://steffierphotography.wordpress.com/


Last, but certainly not least, we will be doing a mini (very, very mini) tour in December! We'll be heading to Borjo Coffeehouse in Norfolk on December 3rd and we will play from 7pm-9pm! The show is free and they have a great menu with some wonderful craft beers, and it will be a great place to study for those finals! 
We will then go to Richmond to play at The Camel with our friend Paulo Franco and another headlining act, which is TBD (but it will be FABULOUS!). That show will be Wednesday, December 4th at 9pm and there will be a $5 cover to get in. We are hoping for another show on December 5th, so keep your eyes and ears out for that annoucement!

Stay warm, and don't drink too much pumpkin coffee. You might turn into one.

WE'RE PLAYING THE HAMILTON!!!!!! 

Hey FarAway fans! We are so amazingly excited about our upcoming show this Wednesday at The Hamilton Live in Washington, DC. Not only do we get to play this incredible venue, but we are opening for the Nashville duo Carolina Story, who has been an inspiration to us and an influence on our writing. 
If you've never been to The Hamilton before then you are in for a treat! It is a gorgeous venue with top of the line everything, and the venue is owned by Clyde's, who doesn't do anything less than amazing. They have world class chefs and bartenders and in our opinion some of the best sushi we have EVER had! 

Tickets are only $14 (yes, seriously) for this gorgeous venue, and the doors open at 6:30pm, so you can come early and eat dinner before the show starts at 7:30. We will be on first, so make sure you get there in time! You can buy tickets here: https://www.eventfarm.com/tokens/event/7fff5387-0000-4521-a253-110fd2dbde3f

It would mean the world to us to have some local love and support from all of you, and we really hope to be able to look out into the crowd and see some familiar faces! We really want October 23rd to be a night we remember, so let's make it a GREAT show!!!!
