Combing a funky melody with an '80s sax and horns, Grace Farriss' debut track, "All The People," is a mesmerizing, genre-bending piece of upbeat music. The daughter of INXS keyboardist and main composer, Andrew Farriss, the up-and-coming talent proves she has inherited her dad's skills with this exciting track that encompasses everything from a disco bassline to killer drum fills.
Recorded and produced by Tony Buchen (The Preachers, Montaigne, G-Flip) and mastered by Leon Zervos (Amy Shark, P!nk, Maroon 5), "All The People" borrows from a range of genres (funk, soul, disco, pop) and offers music lovers a sonic delight. Speaking on the song, Farriss had this to say:
'All The People' came about while I was thinking deeply about the larger and more worldly aspects of life. The chord progression and rhythm of the song came ﬁrst, very strongly, and then I put the melody and the lyrics over the top at the same time. I ended up singing the 'All The People' lyrics unknowingly and the meaning became more obvious the more the song took life.
This song is an explosion of my heart and I feel in many ways at this time, the worlds heart. I have always had such a deep fascination with how all of the world’s cultures united and came to be and how we all interact with one another and interconnect through our wonderful cultural differences. What I feel other cultures teach you is that we are all one and the same, which I feel music and the arts certainly accomplish to bring this awareness to us all so intimately and so beautifully, internally and in celebration with one another.
Released at a time when the world is still struggling to come to terms with everything that's going on, "All The People" offers three minutes of euphoria and singles out Farriss as one to watch.
