Melody Driven Pop
The Farewells are an acoustic duo from Boxborough, Ma. Multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Peter Linnane has played with numerous local and international acts, is a recording and mastering engineer and writes music for documentaries and commercials. Sam Linnane adds vocals and guitar to their melody driven arrangements. The Farewells mix acoustic pop, folk, rock and a pinch of electronica and poetry to form a vista of dark twang and sunny pop.
