FarAway is a successful Washington, DC area based band playing a wide variety of music on both the cover song side and original side. The duo of Sara Davenport and Brian Franke formed in August 2012 and since then have played over 150 shows, released an EP called “Somehow”, did a month long summer tour fully funded by their fans, and had a song placed on TV.
As a cover band, FarAway plays a range of venues from rowdy and fun bars in DC, Arlington, and Alexandria to low key and laid back venues such as many of the wineries in Virginia. Their wide range of covers from classic rock to 90s alternative rock hits to singer/songwriters have made them one of the most demanded male/female duos in the DC area.
As an original act they consider themselves to be a blend of folk and pop. Their tight harmonies and catchy songs have gotten them headlined at venues such as Jammin Java and The Hard Rock Cafe, shared the stage with Phillip Phillips, Carolina Story, and Griffin House, and landed themselves in top festivals such as the Virginia State Fair, the Northern Virginia Beer Festival, Celebrate Fairfax, Cape May Singer Songwriter Showcase, and the Arlington County Fair.
