"Farmer delivers the grit, shame, truth and glory of his songs with the reckless abandon that could only have been spawned from
good times, heartache and hundreds of sleepless nights. Like salt in an open wound, Farmer bares his soul for all who want to listen, regardless of consequence. Equal parts rock, soul and twang, this is music for those who aren't afraid of the truth...
even if the truth ain't pretty.”
Jack Feight - Highway 61 Recording Co. Nashville
“Farmers songs were made for coffee and cigarette mornings and Jack Daniels nights - where equal parts heartache and hope make
life worth living and in this case.....
worth listening to.”
- Sherri Lynn - International Tattoo Art New York, NY US
"Mike Farmer is a true country roots rocker that absolutely shines out in the songs he wrote for this new CD. I would compare him with other American country rockers as Shooter Jennings or Ted Russell Kamp, but his sound is a bit rougher and the guitar riffs in the music a little sharper than the two musicians"
Freddy Celis - Rootstime - Belgium
"Under The Influence" suits my show perfectly

- Lee Williams - CEO/Owner CMR Nashville/Radio UK International
The unpretentious "Under The Influence" album rocks like an avalanche in the Rocky Mountains. "Myleene" and "Rock And Roller" with "Keef" style riffs and a prime piece of harmonica, are rock 'n roll from the top shelf. "Want It All" is a driving ZZ Top style boogie in the best tradition.
- Martin Overheul - Alt Country Forum - Netherlands
