A performer from a very young age, singer, dancer and model Farrah Washington is making her musical debut with the release of her first official EP, Neoteric, in October 2014. Even though she is rather shy, Farah is no stranger to the spotlight and she comes alive when she sings – opening her heart and letting her fans in.
Farah started singing when she was just six years old and by middle school she began to compete in talent shows. Even though she did not win, Farah was not discouraged. She joined the high school dance team, built her confidence as a performer, began to write songs and worked hard to develop her own sound in the recording studio.
To gain a following, Farah took to the Internet and began posting mini-projects on MySpace. In 2008 and 2009, she uploaded her first collection of songs, which she titled Rebirth Nation. As she began to acquire a fan base for her music, Farah fell into a successful modeling career.
“I got into modeling by accident,” says Farah. “I was working with a photographer to take some professional pictures for my music and he suggested that I get into modeling. So at the age of 18, I did, and it’s my primary job right now.”
Farah’s modeling, along with other small jobs, pay the bills so she can work on her new album, scheduled to launch in October. Her EP Neoteric features a unique sound, which Farah describes as a combination of urban pop, experimental and R&B. This album is close to her heart – it tells the story of her first love and she wrote every word from the soul.
The song "5.3.1." is slow and sultry, placing the listener in Farah’s heart and mind. The song expresses Farah’s feelings towards her first love. When she originally heard the music for this song, she struggled to come up with the lyrics, but once she focused on him, the song simply came to her. It has quickly become everyone’s favorite song on the album.
Another favorite, "I Don’t Wanna (Leave)" is unique, featuring an experimental beat. It is dark – there is more bass, and more upbeat than "5.3.1.". Inspired by the end of her relationship, Farah reflects on how her relationship began to fall apart, how she wished it were different and how she simply does not want to leave.
The talented California singer and model known as Farah has announced the release of her brand new single “Stay In.” Her latest release, the new track is classic urban pop and r&b that beautifully highlights her voice and genuine vocal ability. As previously mentioned in reference to her past releases, "Farah’s heart and soul come through in her music, leaving her listeners feeling as though they know her personally." You can pre-order “Stay In” now on iTunes.
