Jason's live show incorporates elements of techno, electro pop, and rock, and is best described as a mixture of Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, and modern Peter Gabriel. These elements can be heard in Jason's epic song 'First Man on Mars'. It is an "eclectic mix of piano, synthesizer, electric guitars, drums, and a megaphone. Thanks to Jason's keen musical ear, he avoids the telescope altogether, packs you up on his spaceship of sound and transports you to Mr. Big Red Planet himself. By the time you're half way through the song, you're ready to kiss Mrs. Earth goodbye and start learning the ways of a Martian. That's how good Farnham's songs are; they make you want to go alien! With his complex intricate music patterns it's easy to overlook Jason's true gift: songwriting." -Deron Wade, Ijamr.com magazine (7/07). The band plays to a sequence including techno loops and sound effects, resulting in a hard-hitting and danceable live performance. Both his techno pop and instrumental piano music have been used as a soundtrack for ballet productions, independent films, and professional magic productions. His debut electro pop album, ‘Barriers’, which was produced in Toronto, Canada, is quickly gaining national attention. Track 3 ‘First Man on Mars’ is the official theme song for the 4Frontiers Corporation’s Mars exploration campaign. It is also the musical track for the 30-second animated Mars flyby video, which can be seen on the official 4Frontiers website: www.4frontierscorp.com. Track 4 ‘Spin’ was featured on the Montel Williams Multiple Sclerosis Music Fest 2006 Compilation CD for the Pop/Rock/Alternative genre.

JASON FARNHAM: 'BARRIERS'
Music Connection Magazine, L.A. (4/8/07)
"Songs from this L.A.-based artist are well-crafted, deftly produced and, thanks to Farnham’s nasally vocal delivery, convey a hopeful optimism. “Spin”is the out-and-out winner here; a radio-friendly song with a big hook that’s perfectly teed up and whacked over the fence."
JASON FARNHAM: ‘FIRST MAN ON MARS’ (FROM ‘BARRIERS’)
The Big Ugly Review, San Francisco (7/17/06)
"...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."

JASON FARNHAM: ‘BARRIERS’
Cleveland Scene (8/9/06)
"At his best (e.g. 'The Magician's Life'), Canton's 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'. "
