The Neuro Farm is a dark wave indie rock band based in Washington DC. Brian Wolff and Rebekah Feng started the concept in October 2010, combining vocal harmony with soaring violin melodies and driving rhythm guitar. They were later joined by bassist Christopher Willett and drummer Colin Diemer, who added a powerful rhythm section to the dark and dreamy sound.
Their music has been described as ethereal and hauntingly beautiful. The Neuro Farm draw on influences like Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Muse, Sigur Ros, Blonde Redhead, Joy Division, Chelsea Wolfe, and Rammstein. They have produced three albums so far: Blissful Isolation (2011), Ghosts (2014), and The Descent (2019).
The Neuro Farm puts on a dreamy yet delightfully dark and energetic performance. Their shows have been covered by the Washington Post Going Out guide, Brightest Young Things, DC Music Reviews, Hometown Sounds, and Metro Music. The Neuro Farm's music has also been featured on Takoma Radio 94.3FM in Washington DC, as well as Asalto Mata Radio Rock, Spain's alternative rock radio station.
Brian S. Wolff
Guitar / vocal
Brian Wolff has long been fascinated by neuropharmacology, and has even longer been fascinated by music. After several years of playing guitar in the California rock band Honey White, he started writing, playing, and producing music for the The Neuro Farm. His goal is to blend the musical sensibilities of his early guitar heroes, Dave Gilmour and Neil Young, with elements from a wide range of styles including psychedelia/prog, industrial, gothic, electronic, and film score.
Electric violin / vocal
Rebekah Feng is a neuroscientist by day and musician by night. Before joining the Neuro Farm, she was a solo artist in Lia, an instrumental new age project. Rebekah started the Neuro Farm with Brian Wolff in October 2010. She is a vocalist and electric violinist in the band. Her passions include science, music, photography, rescuing dogs, and poems by e. e. cummings. Her signature musical style is dark, theatrical, and full of reverb.
Chris is a graduate of the University of Virginia, where he first started performing as a bassist at frat parties and local bars. Since then, he has been a member in multiple bands of various styles and recorded on a number of albums and EPs for local artists in the DC and Northern Virginia area. Chris thrives off adding his bass stylings to whatever project comes his way and takes pride in being able to contribute to rock, pop, metal, blues, country or jazz whenever necessary. Beyond the band jobs, he has worked as the bass pit musician in several local musical productions including The Rocky Horror Show and Rock of Ages.
Colin came into The Neuro Farm camp in 2017 after a self-induced performing hiatus of several years. A native of St. Louis and with additional roots in the Philadelphia area, his drumming experience over the years has afforded rich opportunities to record, tour, and collaborate in a multitude of settings and musical genres. With diverse and eclectic musical influences ranging from jazz, salsa, rockabilly, electronica, metal, and even the classical symphony orchestra, Colin strives to create music that stands up over time and warrants repeated listening. When not playing with the band, Colin actively works on expanding his hat collection.
