Mike Farris may be best known as lead vocalist and writer for acclaimed '90s rock band The Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies, but it was only after he pursued his own musical direction in the early 2000s that he found his calling. Taking a path that intertwines rock, blues and gospel has allowed him to rediscover and reinterpret traditional gospel music and add his own mix of Stax influenced blue-eyed soul. Farris' "Shine for all the People" was the 2015 Grammy Award winner for Best Roots Gospel album.
