John Faye “DNA”

With 2 decades in the music business under his belt, Philly rock veteran John Faye has truly taken matters into his own hands: his new solo album Meddling Kid (which he is releasing a song at a time until the full record drops later in 2015) is an artistic tour-de-force on which he plays every instrument and sings every note (with the one notable exception of inviting all of his colleagues from his former band IKE to sing gang vocals on his remake of that band’s signature hit “Into Philadelphia”). The lead single, “D.N.A.,” is a scathing rebuke of skin-deep relationships and snap judgements in the age of Tinder and short attention spans.

“DNA” made it’s World Premiere on Philadelphia’s Radio 104.5 HERE as John Faye & The Meddling Kids will be part of the Radio1045 Summer Block Party on Sunday 7/12 along with Nate Ruess (Fun), The War On Drugs, MS.MR., and Civil Twilight.

John Faye has amassed an impressive musical resume dating back to his major label days fronting 90’s alt-rockers The Caulfields (whose single “Devil’s Diary” cracked the modern rock top-40, and whose album tracks landed on soundtracks for Disney’s “The Babysitter’s Club” and “Melrose Place”), to his first solo foray The John Faye Power Trip, which morphed into the aforementioned IKE (who put out 6 full-length records from 2003-2011), and his punk / garage-rock influenced duo John & Brittany, who gained notoriety on the Sirius/XM channel “Little Steven’s Underground Garage” and on MTV-u with their video for their song “Paper Planes.”

Now, in 2015, Faye is forging a brand new DIY path with his new record and live band, fittingly called John Faye & Those Meddling Kids! With sold out headlining shows in their home town and a coveted slot at Radio 104.5’s Summer Block Party with Nate Ruess of Fun, The War On Drugs, MS MR, and Civil Twilight, John Faye is poised to bring out the Meddling Kid in everyone within earshot.
