TRIXTER/RA/KUARANTINE/FOZZY bassist P.J. Farley will release his second solo album, ‘Accent The Change’, on September 25 through HighVolMusic. P.J. checks in with The Record Machine Show and talks about the new album, ‘back in the day’, TRIXTER, RA and more.
“This record is something that I am proud of on a profound level,” he says. “For starters, I’m proud that I completed it unknowing I was going to make a follow up. Songs kept coming to me and I’ve had plenty to write about. I’ve cut myself open on it and have painted pictures of some of the things that have evolved and transpired since ‘Boutique Sound Frames’ was written. There is a kind of theme and conscious pace to it that makes sense in sequence. Once again, it is a rock record but one that does not go 100mph… and I’m okay with that.” – P.J. Farley
In 2009 P.J. was asked to join up with Grammy nominated female artist Lita Ford and toured worldwide with her for almost 4 years. At that time Trixter had also reemerged to release 2 new studio records in 2012 and 2014. P.J. and Trixter would continue to tour the world once again. In 2016 P.J. released his first solo album ‘Boutique Sound Frames’ in which he wrote, produced and performed all instruments himself. In 2017 had P.J. join forces with Eric Martin of Mr. Big touring Japan and the US as well as being the backup band for Comedian Jim Breuer.
P.J. continued to tour around the world while recording his 2nd solo record, working with Detroit based engineer Chuck Alkazian and RA frontman Sahaj Ticotin who recently co-wrote songs with Nikki Sixx for The Dirt soundtrack as well as writing and producing Sevendust front-man Lajon Witherspoons debut solo CD. P.J. signed with HighVolMusic in February of 2020 for the release of his 2nd solo effort title ‘Accent the Change’.
P.J. can also be seen touring with AEW star and singer Chris Jericho with his band Fozzy.
