Speak of Love EP Review on Slide & Banjo!

Special thanks to Marty for the review <3

Multi-instrumentalist and shaman to the California music scene Farmer Dave Scher has released a four-song EP titled "Speak of Love," his first solo release since 2009's "Flash Forward to the Good Times." While Farmer Dave is legendary both musically and artistically, his main output has been as part of bands such as Beachwood Sparks, The Skiffle Players, and Kurt Vile and the Violators. This offering affords Farmer Dave the luxury of an unfiltered platform to get his message out.

Scher begins, "The EP is called "Speak of Love" and the songs have to do with a certain journey in that regard. Viewing love from a couple of different angles, as if you were holding it up like a crystal. It was an international four song journey and it was a different approach. "This little EP has its own message and mission. "Speak of Love" is something for this time and place. For people to see I'm not trying to be all that and a bag of chips. I'm following my heart and saying what I believe is happening."

While part of the EP covers a breakup in Farmer Dave's past, there is also significant attention paid to the theme of pitching in and doing our share to maximize the greatness and potential of the earth we live on. A topic tread lightly for some musicians, but a lifestyle for Farmer Dave.

FD to Perform at Benefit Concert for the People of the Amazon 6/10/20


 I’ll be playing a live set in a concert benefitting people of the Amazon Rainforest this Wednesday, June 10, along with some great musicians such as Devendra Banhart, Santiparro, Avey Tare, Will Oldham, Tony Moss, and many others.


There is great hardship among the people there due to COVID-19 as well as the continuing ravages of industrialization… they are in dire need of our collective attention and support.


We can change the story… it’s why we’re here!


Please join us for the event and please help spread the word, it’s going to be a beautiful scene.   Love and Thanks,



Black Lives Matter!




I am standing in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, willing to learn how to be a better ally, to help to make a new way of life for all people to live free in equality as I believe is our human destiny. Love and prayers to everybody around the world making a stand, making a statement, and finding their voices... now is the time!! We are in this together. I love you, you are not alone...don’t give up the fight!!

FD Scores Surf Film… Big Props!



"Trevor Gordon sips on the cool waters of California. While we are all resting our bones at home, allow "Boo Bapp Bleep" to stretch your mind. A dose of meditative medicine that is gently hammered home through the healing powers of Farmer Dave. Slip into something comfortable (again) and enjoy the ride."

Californiosos Release Elemental Ode to the Goddess, “Sister Magick”



“’Sister Magick’ is an elemental and heartfelt ode to the Goddess, the feminine energy as she appears in all creation, in Mother Nature, and inside all of us, regardless of gender … we have a pretty wicked patriarchy hangover as a civilization right now, and it’s a process of re-awakening we’re going through … a heavy trip, yes, but ultimately, it’s our destiny to return to Nature and reclaim our true power as a species. Sister Magick, we love you!”

“Sister Magick” and the Californiosos LP are available here from Earthstar’s own label.
