Chad Farran is a singer/songwriter based out of San Diego, CA who blends contemporary American music with Brazilian rythms. Over the past 3 years he has been involved in the production of music for the popular surf/travel show On "Surfari" that airs on FOX network’s Fuel TV, and has managed to capture the essence of foreign countries that the show travels to by studying the traditions and instruments from each place, incorporating them into musical pieces, and creating a contemporary and refreshing soundtrack. His debut album, "The Crowded Train" was released in 2000 on his own record label, Superunloader. Prior to his solo career, he was a the band Bad Mood Zeus. In 2006 Farran released a CD from the original compositions he had written as a singer/songwriter entitled "Another Ride".

The album uses the same techniques as his soundtrack work to fuse Latin sounds and rhythms with the acoustic pop melodies that were inspired by influential recording artists both in the U.S. and abroad Farran's interest in Brazilian culture makes an impressive influence on Another Ride, as he weaves stories of love found and love lost with the rhythms that enchanted him on his travels throughout that country. The Brazilian styles of Samba, Bossa Nova, Reggae, Forro, and Maracatu can all be heard in his songs, as he showcases his talents on the instruments he collected and brought back. The live shows can range from a mellow solo performance to the energy of a full band, but always captivate audiences with diverse instrumentation and lyrical content sung in both English and Portuguese. Chad now begins the task of opening the minds of the music lover and enticing them with the infectious rhythms and melodies he has captured so well on his new CD. Read more on Last.fm.
