FARPOINT Release “Kindred” on 10T Records
Charleston, SC – May 3, 2011 (10T Records) – 10T Records is excited to announce the signing of South Carolina’s Farpoint to its roster of artists. The band will release their upcoming new full-length CD release, “Kindred,” on May 23, 2011 with a retail street date of July 5.
“Kindred” features Dave Auerbach on guitars, Dean Hallal on vocals, Kevin Jarvis on guitars, keyboards, and vocals, Jennifer Meeks on vocals, and flute, Frank Tyson on bass guitar, and vocals, and Rick Walker on drums, and percussion.
Through four studio albums and over ten years of live performance at clubs, festivals, fundraisers, and private events, Farpoint have continued to walk their own path, creating a unique blend of genres and styles. While existing fans will instantly hear the qualities that they have always associated with Farpoint, “Kindred” sees the band stretching into new territory and broadening their blend of uplifting and positive symphonic prog, folk and hard rock. Produced and Mixed by Jeff Hodges (Fromuz, Man On Fire, Govt. Mule) at Charleston Sound (www.charlestonsound.com), “Kindred” has a more dynamic, full and present sound than prior releases with tight drum grooves and fills, intriguing bass lines, layered harmonies and intricate melodies while retaining a very accessible feel.
“We are thrilled to become a part of the 10T family, and honored to be listed among 10T's incredible roster of artists,” says Kevin Jarvis. “As a completely independent band for over 12 years, it's nice to find a record label that believes in our music enough to make an investment in it, especially when the label obviously maintains such a strong emphasis on the artistic integrity of the music they release.”
“We have been following Farpoint’s musical career for a number of years,” says 10T Records president, Steve Carroll. “When the band approached my partner, Jeff, about recording and producing their next CD at his studio, it seemed like the logical time to combine our energies to create something special. Having Farpoint on board feels kind of like a family reunion.”

After July 5th, “Kindred” will be available through your favorite retail outlet.
