There is a divine emotion that captures us when we experience pure eccentricity. Based out of Vancouver, BC singer/songwriter Fara encompasses that exact feeling. Through brilliant tones and alluring melodies, she sings the stories of her life in the most purest form. Originally from Singapore, Fara’s earliest memories were always filled with the sounds of music. Her parents
(and grandparents) had played and performed in traditional Malay bands for many years, exposing her to the world of composition at a young age. It wasn’t until high school however that Fara realized her talent for songwriting would also play a part in her overall development.
After collaborating with locals around the city, Fara instantly became known for writing catchy hooks. Her first single was used in a CBC reality show which ultimately edged her a bit closer to understanding her calling. In 2016 she shared the stage with R&B icons 112 and Ginuwine, and worked with legendary vocal coach Seth Riggs in 2018. When asked about her inspiration to
create songs, she stated: “I make music because it makes me feel good. I write as therapy for myself. I sing to make others feel inspired, and to be a voice for those who can deeply relate”.
Teaming up with Vancouver Producers Mattik and Nylez K, Fara went on to release her debut EP entitled “About Me” back in June. The project was a 6-track journey through the mind of a contemporary woman. Filled with an array of instrumentation, everything from the depth of the songs to the production quality was packaged to perfection. The single entitled “Hello Goodbye
ft. Dkay” was received with open arms from the local Vancouver community, and gave balance to such an emotional and methodical project.
Between 2018 and 2019 Fara performed in over 20+ shows in Los Angeles and Vancouver. From vocal workshops to singing the National Anthem for the BC Lions opener, she continues to outwork and out-hustle her competition. When all is said and done, Fara is a testament to the power of independent musicians. To be blessed with the gift of song and radiating as one of the most elegant human beings on the planet, Fara is undoubtedly a one-stop-shop for everything music.
