New ReleasesFollow Playlist to Hear the New Songs
The song “It’s Okay to Rock With Him” releases January 1st
Stan Farrell makes music under Wizbe. With over 18 years of music from Wizbe with well over 200 songs, and some of Wizbe Songs may possibly be good. Some songs are eclectic, motivating, joking, contemplative, alternative, with some story telling. The music is a mixture of acoustic and electric, direct vocals, keyboard, and sounds that are raw and full of energy.
Why Wizbe? Wizbe is a worm. The worm was a smart worm who first worked in a Chinese restaurant before becoming an inventor. The worm worked on a spaceship, a remote controlled boomerang, and a robot. He lived happily ever after. Listen to the worm.
Stan Farrell is Wizbe. Stan has traveled through the United States and Europe, with small excursions to Canada and Mexico. Sometimes people listened to Wizbe songs, sometimes they cheered.
Wizbe continues to create in the songwriting studio carpeted room before taking the sounds to the world. Influences include Grateful Dead, Metallica, Meatloaf, Phil Collins, and The Phantom of the Opera. Listen. See what you think. Tell Wizbe what you think.

Music Magic. It starts with a note. This is Stan of Wizbe.
Because more people are playing now than the rest of history combined, and a larger percentage of people are making music, the music magic is returning. Music is coming back to the people. And when music comes back to the people the magic will begin to flow to make the world more amazing than ever.
The Magic of Music
Magic comes from the combination of things that become greater than the parts. Music is magic, and humans knew that music could be used to do magical things. Everyone was a musician and with that everyone was connected.
The ability to use that magic was lost as the power of the music has been usurped by the powerful; first the church, then the nations and the dictators (kings), and now corporations who run the mega-bands that push us to believe that only “musicians” should make music, and the rest of the world should just listen to what their selling. But that is beginning to change through the democratization of the way music is recorded, distributed, found, and listened to. Anyone can participate. And everyone is. Music is the hope for everyone to create something bigger than themselves.
What first got you into music?
Playing music was with me forever. And that’s the case with almost everybody. Music is the concept that you are aware of the universe around you. At first I was told that I was terrible. Who the duck tells anyone that!? It happens….like “don’t quit your day job.” I bet the insults even happens when you’re Joe Strummer. But. like Joe, I have to make music. I do have to make. I still can’t figure out why. I don’t have any idea why I have to make music. I can make other stuff for a while, but I always come back to it. Music is what I make when I’m sitting at an airport or bus terminal. It’s what I do that keeps me up at night. It drives me crazy. I’m laying in bed in up pops some lyrics or a melody. It’s there until I write it down. It took a long time before I decided to see where the music would take me. I was spending a lot of time on this music stuff anyway, so why not learn to be better at it? So I started learning for real. And that’s when my music started to improve. And that’s when I started sharing with the world. I strummed. I hummed. It wasn’t until years had gone by that I said to myself. Let’s do this for real.
