By 20, he was recording his own compositions, while being his own sound engineer. Unable to perform freely and openly in his own country, Fariman found audiences wherever he could. Thinking out of the box, he found new audiences at local embassies, playing for ambassadors from countries such as Brazil, Spain, Germany, and Austria. In the summer of 2008, he was invited to Finland to perform at the Jakobstagger concert, playing to crowds of up to 2,000 over the six day event.
He soon became an instant hit which lead to an interview for the local newspaper "Pietarsaaren Sanomat". In the Summer of 2010, Fariman added video producer and director to his list of titles with the release of his first music video, "They Won't Understand", which by Iranian standards, represents a revolutionary jump in production quality. With a budget of $10,000, this video incorporates professional make-up artists and imported costumes, and was broadcast on the International Music Network, IMNWorld.com. This lead to airings on radio stations such as AF Radio, UCLA Radio, and Air Radio, where the solo quickly landed in the top 10 chart for several weeks. Three months later, he released another music video, "LoveSick", which was featured on the program HOT seen on the International Tv Network "Channel 4".
