Dude was quite an artisan. But later he would get an ass-whooping from his parents for going through the trash and messing things up. So much for family support! He would sing songs during his classes and would occasionally get thrown out of the class for singing. He was famous for getting thrown out of the class because of his signing throughout his school years.
During his college days, he started learning guitar by himself. After a while he started learning piano by himself. At first, it was a bloody torture for everyone to listen to his music and nobody had any kind words to say about his music. Slowly and gradually he started recording his own songs.
He did a sound editing course so he could record his own songs. In the beginning, the lyrics of his songs could be described as 'total shit' but they were 'catchy as hell' and people were drawn toward his music. OK, let's just admit it, the dude has charisma, that's the reason why people were drawn towards whatever he did. But somewhere in the middle of all that chaos, he matured as a musician and started making some really unorthodox and soul-searching music.
He gave soundtrack for a movie called 'Heavenly Bodies' which he himself was a part of as a producer and assistant director. Unfortunately the movie never got made. According to the film crew the movie got shut down because the actors refused to be treated like slaves. One of the actors stated that "everyone was being a real dick on the set." But the score successfully portrayed a warm and fuzzy picture of some distant world.
He had been the front-man and guitarist for a hard rock band called "The Scumdawgs". It was quite a wild ride. It was pretty much like a mutual admiration club where they found solace in each other's words when the outside world rejected them and everyone was being a total dick to them. Later, Faraz started playing jazz music and started covering Norah Jones' songs.
His band mates didn't take too kindly to it and started accusing him of being a "Faggoty-Ass" because according to them he was playing some "gay-ass" music. Faraz ahmed didn't take too kindly to it because he is a big supporter of LGBT community and his best friend was gay. He realised that those guys were just a bunch of immature idiots and it was time to part ways. He broke up with them and decided to go solo.
He is a music composer/arranger/producer. He has a diverse style of production skills in--but not limited to, Rock, Pop, R&B, Blues, ELectronica, Jazz and Classical music. http://www.myspace.com/theunparalleled123 Read more on Last.fm.
