Raised in Canton, Ohio, Jason Farnham began playing the piano at the age of four. He studied piano with numerous teachers and was classically trained. Later in high school and his college years at Ohio University, he began crafting his own style of music. Jason and his wife Lisa moved to Los Angeles in 2006, where he has been involved in numerous projects. A diverse composer and songwriter, his song “Rock Star”, from the album “Barriers”, was placed in the feature film, “American High School”. “Morning Coffee”, from the same album, was featured on the Filter Magazine Channel on all American Airlines flights for the month of January 2009. Jason has also appeared as a pianist in an episode of “Queen Bees”, which aired Fall 2008 on Nickelodeon. Jason keeps strong ties to Northeast Ohio, and “Good Morning Cleveland” Channel 5 ABC did a feature story earlier this year about his world peace song and viral youtube video “Love Around The World”.
Always keeping busy, recent projects include composing for a BMW commercial, scoring the feature film “Hiding in the Open”, and occasionally composing music for the web series “Goon”. Through Studio 51 Music, Jason has placed a number of compositions with Harpo Sounds, which is part of Harpo Productions.
