  Pocket Full Of Rocks

Band Members: Michael Farren, David Rollins, Alisa Farren, Jody Crump, Ryan Riggins

Spending 10 years as a successful independent band, Pocket Full of Rocks now marks the re-launch of Myrrh Records with its debut album, Song to the King. Believing the band embodies what it means to live, breathe and sing a life of worship, Myrrh comes alongside Pocket Full of Rocks to support its ministry and music, providing a broader platform and community for the band to share its message. Michael Farren and drummer David Rollins started Pocket Full of Rocks to lead worship in their local church in 1995. As time passed, the band branched out to colleges and churches in Texas and Arkansas. Later on teaming up with different organizations, Pocket Full of Rocks began to crisscross the country from Washington, D.C., to California, leading worship at multi-day youth conferences and retreats. Comprised of Farren, his wife Alisa (vocals), Rollins, Jody Crump (bass), Ryan Riggins (electric guitar) and Kyle Lee (rhythm and acoustic guitars), Pocket Full of Rocks owes its name to a song from its early days. "We wrote a song called Pocket Full of Rocks, played it in a youth meeting and became known as the Pocket Full of Rocks band," remembers Michael. Deeper meaning is held in the story of David -- before he was ever a great king, he was simply a boy with a "pocket full of rocks," believing God would do something great using any of the small things he himself could offer. Such small things for Pocket Full of Rocks included having songs appear on widely selling worship albums long before the band signed a record deal. Michael W. Smith included "Let It Rain" on his album Worship. Phillips, Craig & Dean received a copy of "Let the Worshippers Arise" from an aunt of Michaels.
