Led by charismatic vocalist and guitarist Pino Farina, Chicago-based alternative rockers Pino Farina Band offer up a unique blend of music with raw unhinged expression and showmanship. Forceful, focused and fun, their live shows are a blend of the sincerity of U2 meets the outrageousness of Foo Fighters. Together with bandmates John Cwiok (bass), Michael Poupko (guitar, ukulele, mandolin) and Johnathan Schiller (drums, vocals) their hybrid mix of rock and melody-driven songs are infused with Pino’s passionate vocals to create their unique sound.
Released in December 2021, Pino Farina Band’s 6-song EP, Daisies, is not a sweet flower of an album, but a “pushing up daisies” collection of songs dealing with self-doubt, relationship struggles, rock bottoms and situations where life turns on a dime. The follow-up to their well-received album, Start Over Again, the independently produced Daisies retains a certain optimism inherent in all their music. Recorded live in the main room at Kiwi Audio, they focused on capturing the essence of celebration and connection that the band is known for in their stage performances. Punchy bass lines, gritty guitar riffs, amazing feats of vocal dexterity all held together with a driving beat is a strong signature to Pino Farina Band’s sound.
