He comes from a long line of conductors, composers, players and singers. That Joey Farber is following in his talented family's footsteps, co-writing and singing the six original songs on his debut CD, is hardly a surprise. Except that Joey is eight years old. The topics - animals, trains, distant planets etc. Will appeal to kids, but the songs, arrangements and production values are top notch and will appeal to all ages, even grown-ups! The players on the CD are some of New York's finest free-lance musicians, including Peter Calo (Carly Simon), Mark Shulman (Jewel, Suzanne Vega, Chris Botti) and Larry Eagle (Bruce Springsteen). Playing keyboards on 'The Early Years' is his father and co-writer, Seth Farber, pianist/conductor for the Broadway musical 'Hairspray' and music director for blues legend Odetta. Mother Liz Queler, whose album 'No Small Wonder' is a favorite in singer/songwriter circles, provides backing vocals. Both Farber and Queler are also members of the Little Band That Could, led by children's musician Brady Rymer.
