Fahren J is known by fans and fellow musicians as a songwriter, a singer, a worshipper, an advocate, a wife, a mother, a sister, and a friend–– but she is possibly best known for the inspiration of her voice and music that has inspired and motivated people from all walks of life. The sassy and soulful Washington native has successfully integrated Soul, Rock, Gospel, and R&B into rich tenor/alto tones with lyrics that speak Faith, Love, and Life.
“Her music is so smooth and soulful, it makes you want to close your eyes and enjoy the ride!”
~Shaun Alexander, Former Seattle Seahawks Running Back
Her Freshman Album, Fahren – My Story, released in 2007, gave voice and song to the testimonies of life and how she was able to navigate through challenges and overcome them. Fahren’s sound is truly unique and unlike any artist you have heard to date. She casts a refreshing mood, a unique sound and a positive message, which leaves any listener encouraged and inspired. Her eclectic-soul and rich R&B sound embody many musical influences of old and new. Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Fahren spent her youth listening to Eurythmics, Human League, Billy Joel, Talking Heads, Chaka Khan & Rufus, Earth Wind and Fire, P-Funk, and Evelyn Champagne King. She projects a mature, yet laid-back vocal style that delivers music that will transcend time, gender, and genre.
Fahren received two honors at the 2007 Northwest Music Awards hosted by ITM (In the Music), as the Best Female R&B Album and Best Crossover album of her locally released Independent solo project Fahren- My Story. She will be attending the YGEA Awards in Atlanta at Morehouse College, as well as the Arizona Gospel Music Convention in Glendale, Arizona. Fahren has also been featured on Her Past is Not Her Future CD, which features many other artists, including Darlene Zschech of Hillsong and Chris Tomlin of the Passion Worship Band, who sing to inspire & encourage women who have gone through abuse in their past. It released this October in Australia.
Fahren is an advocate for many issues going on in her community, as well as the world at large. She works with World Vision US Programs, serving the Pacific Northwest. Fahren administers and coordinates for the entire program staff, Distribution Center, and storehouse. US Programs works domestically in the PNW providing partnership, training, and resources to children, youth, and families in underprivileged areas, and offers resources and support to other non-profit groups that have the same focus. They have worked on projects such as Relief for Haiti, Backpacks for Children, Food Drives, and other such community outreaches. Fahren supports local benefits such as The Sickle Cell Foundation and Sisters Against Lupus where she has performed her music as well.
Fahren is not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and has a testimony that will encourage the hearts of all who hear. While her mother was institutionalized in a Mental Hospital, she was raped. Fahren was conceived from that rape and entered into the Foster Care System as a Ward of the State at 6 months old. Her journey of identity and purpose took her through challenges that should have destroyed her, yet her decision to Choose Life in Christ has helped her to become the woman that she is today. Her life is her song; her passion and mission is to see people understand who they are and walk strong in their purpose. Her new album: Life Changing Music: Faith, Love, Life was just released and is available at www.fahrenj.com. With songs like “This Way to Love” and “Angel”, she encourages her listeners to not only love self, but to love others. She has written her first book entitled A View of Redemption: My Story, published by Hunter Heart Publishing, which is available for purchase with the album, off of the Christ Hu Nterz Productions Label.
“I believe while God was speaking forth the heavens and the earth, He created music in the midst of His creating. I imagine Him humming a sound, as He’s creating the galaxy, placing the stars and the planets in place and forming the world and the fullness of all that grows and lives in it. Because we are created in His image, that same influence of music is in us. Some gifted in it more than others. Some are to deliver the sound, some are to write for the sound, and all of us are drawn to listen to the sounds of music. I don’t know one person on this earth that is not moved by music…It’s completely universal, and that can only be accomplished by the One who created it for everyone. If God Almighty found it important enough to create music as He framed the foundations for the universe and the world, this means music encompasses a significant power that is not to be misused or abused. I could spend my time writing and singing music that speaks anger and all that comes from it, or I can spend my time writing and singing music that will speak life. I’d rather do the latter.”
Fahren J is truly a unique and one-of-a-kind artist. She brings to the industry a confidence and maturity that can inspire the youngest to the oldest. You will love her music and the positive, fresh presence she brings.
