Chris Farren will be the first to tell you he's a "musician's musician" although he's not really sure what that means. Maybe it means that the Florida-based musician has been grinding it out for over a decade, making endless friends along the way. The charismatic frontman of the Naples band Fake Problems has toured with everyone from Against Me! to The Gaslight Anthem to Say Anything.

But as Fake Problems has been eerily quiet since the release of their full-length, 2010's Real Ghosts Caught on Tape, Farren has been branching out and dipping his toes into other waters. He recently unveiled his two-man project with Bomb the Music Industry!'s Jeff Rosenstock called Antarctigo Vespucci, a refreshingly unpretentious pop machine. He's also been stripping things down and experimenting with solo material. Farren recently released a split EP with Grey Gordon, Ducks Fly Together. Without the comfort of a backing band, the self-made Verified Twitter user is seeing how far he can get on his own, with nothing but a ton of inspiration and a good reputation. After all, Chris Farren is a musician's musician. Ask anyone, just not him.
