Who's Farinella

David John Farinella has been writing about the inside of the music business since the beginning of his career, concentrating his attention on performers, songwriters, record producers, and occasionally the personality that fuses them all. Farinella got his start covering the San Francisco Bay Area music scene in 1990 and he quickly moved into the national media, contributing to such publications as Billboard, Mix, Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Performing Songwriter, Modern Drummer, and a handful of memorable, yet defunct, music magazines. In addition to his regular magazine contributions, Farinella was an associate editor for The Encyclopedia of Record Producers. Although Farinella has interviewed some legendary performers, it is the story behind the story that has constantly fascinated him. Some of his most memorable professional moments have come in the studio as performers and producers put their hearts into the intricacies of a song.
