Farrell and Farrell

Updated: Sep 30


Farrell and Farrell was a Christian music husband and wife duo formed in 1977 by Bob and Jayne Farrell. They have released seven studio albums and one live album between 1978 and 1989 and have amassed many Christian radio hits during those times. Bob Farrell is the principal songwriter of the duo and outside of Farrell and Farrell has written songs for many CCM and mainstream artists like Amy Grant, Sandi Patty, Eric Clapton, Anne Murray, Laura Branigan and DeGarmo & Key.


The duo performed together from 1971-74 touring with Love Song and Randy Matthews. In 1974 Bob joined the group Millennium, then Dove from 1974-76. Jayne cut a solo album in 1973. In 1976 the couple moved to Edmund, Oklahoma and began recording as the duo Farrell and Farrell together the following year. After the release of Superpower in 1989, the duo decided to retire from touring and recording, although wife Jayne does some occasional solo touring, husband Bob wanted to focus more on songwriting and producing. Now living in Nashville, Tennessee.
