Press Release Summary: U.S. Power-pop rocker, Darren Farris, gets UK single,\"Save
Me,\"picked up by Teamtalk Broadcast, for national airplay.

Press Release Body: Los Angeles, CA , April 16, 2008 -- Awaiting an official release
in America, Darren Farris\'s current single, \"Jenna,\" has already begun to garner him
a much needed industry respect and notoriety in the United Kingdom. It is currently
the #1 single on the UK\'s Overplay pop/rock charts, as well as other esteemed
charting systems globally.

With physical CD sales diminishing globally, opportunities for upcoming musicians
run very thin, as the major labels scrounge to get into the digital markets they
once shunned. GRM Records announced today that Teamtalk, a market leader in
producing in-store radio stations throughout the United Kingdom, has picked up the
upcoming Darren Farris single, \"Save Me,\" for broadcast. Teamtalk\'s clients include
several top national retailers, plus hundreds of pubs, bars and cafés around the UK.
Teamtalk Broadcast\'s flagship in-store radio station, Asda FM Live, was nominated
for the Best Digital Network in the annual POPAI awards in 2007. This is yet another
great opportunity for the Los Angeles based singer/songwriter to be heard by
thousands of attentive listeners daily throughout the UK.

Farris says he is not surprised that \"Save Me,\" is prematurely grabbing a lot of the
limelight from his current UK hit, \"Jenna.\"

\"After I wrote it [Save Me], I instantly grew attached to the song,\" says Farris.\"It
is actually the closest thing to a ballad that I have ever written. It made me want
to write more [ballads]. If it were physically possible to kiss a song, then I would
give that track a big wet one,\" jokes Farris, as he tries to describe the only
ballad, on his new guitar-driven, pop-rocker album, \"Psychopathic Issues.\"

Farris seems to realize that the opportunities the UK music community has given him,
are to be appreciated.

\"It\'s great to know that this music is being embraced outside of our home turf,\" he
explains. \"To me as a songwriter, it validates my music, as having a universal
message- that these melodies and words can connect to all types of people on a
larger scale. We are excited about all the opportunities that broadcasting giants
like Teamtalk may open up for our music.\"

While Britons may enjoy, \"Save Me,\" gracing their ears at the check out, Farris\'s
own native land will have to wait, as the U.S. release of,\"Save Me,\" is not
scheduled until winter of 2008.
