Born in Brooklyn, NY, Jason got into music at an early age. The first record he ever bought was Depeche Mode's Violator, and within days he was rocking Enjoy the Silence on his Korg X2 synthesizer. His love of music continued to grow, and soon encompassed genres across the musical spectrum. After a road trip to the Cleveland Coliseum to see U2's Zoo TV tour, he knew his life would never be the same.
While attending Ohio University, he began performing at pubs and university events in Athens with Pinker Than Pale, an experimental rock trio he formed with fellow musicians Bryan Murphy and Lara Wallace. It was during this time he wrote and recorded his first demo single, Octagon.
Farnham's first solo album, Barriers, was produced in Toronto by Doug Romanow. The album included a re-recorded version of Octagon, and featured First Man on Mars, a 7-minute rock anthem about traveling to the red planet. Barriers received positive industry reviews from the likes of Music Connection Magazine and Cleveland Scene Magazine.
Since the release of Barriers, Farnham has been composing for independent films, the YouTube Audio Library, and working on new, original material.
Now, he's excited to be releasing a string of new, self-produced singles. The first, a cover of Leonard Cohen's iconic Hallelujah, is available now.
