ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jason's debut electro-pop album, 'Barriers', which took six years to record in Toronto, Canada, was released in late 2006 and continues to gain worldwide attention:

Track 2 'Morning Coffee' has been programmed on all American Airlines flights (In-Flight Listening: Filter Magazine Channel) for the month of January 2009.

Track 9 'Rock Star' has been placed in the upcoming feature film, "American High School".

Track 4 'Spin', the infectious pop song on the album, appears on the Montel William MS Foundation 2006 Compilation CD.

Track 3 'First Man on Mars', a futuristic pop-techno journey about sending future space missions to Mars, has been chosen by the 4Frontiers Corporation as their official theme song. The song also provides the musical accompaniment to the 4Frontiers 90-second animated Mars flyby video. (http://www.4frontierscorp.com/medianews/promotional_videos.php)



Collectively, 'Barriers' is a ten song album full of colorful, sonic layers, cinematic themes and lyrics that suggest both messages of despair and hope. Each song's lyrics tie into the overall theme of overcoming either a physical, mental, or communication barrier.


"At his best (e.g. 'The Magician's Life'), Jason Farnham plays the kind of gorgeous pop that explodes onto radio fully formed. 'Morning Coffee', like all the songs, bubbles over an unplugged foundation, with enough electronic flourishes to keep the mix hopping, even when the lyrics drift back to the New Age realm, as on 'First Man on Mars'."

-Cleveland Scene Magazine (August 9, 2006)


"'First Man on Mars'...That's what you'd expect from a song about a celestial planet! Very expert musicality; I'd like to hear more from the artist."

-Rosalie Howarth, writer/personality: KFOG San Francisco, The Putumayo World Music Hour

steve

need track purchase options too
I like rockstar, while the rest of your cd may be great, I both don't want to plop down for an entire cd and i don't want to have to wait to have a cd mailed to me.

Some on here have set up tunes as cheap as $0.77/track on one site, that person made a sale and sadly, this is one sale you could have made.

Again, I love rockstar.

Jem

Totally different, a great sound and a wonderful album
There isn't a weak song on this album, but my favourites are: the magician's life and morning coffee. Each song is fresh and it's a CD you'll play again and again.

So yeah - go buy!
