Chad Farran is an accomplished performer and producer creating music for TV shows, independent films, album projects, bands and musicians. He has won several San Diego music awards for both his solo and band accomplishments, and nominated for Best World Music Album at the Independent Music Awards (IMA) for his On Surfari Sessions Vol 1.
For years he has been involved in the production of music for the popular surf/travel show On Surfari that airs domestically on FOX network’s Fuel TV, and internationally on National Geographic. He has managed to capture the essence of foreign countries that the show travels to by studying the traditions and instruments from each place, incorporating them into musical pieces, and creating a contemporary and refreshing soundtrack.
In addition to his On Surfari instrumental work, Farran has also released CD’s from the original compositions he had written as a singer/songwriter. “Another Ride” uses the same techniques as his soundtrack work to fuse Latin sounds and rhythms with the acoustic pop melodies that were inspired by influential recording artists both in the U.S. and abroad. “The Crowded Train” is an eclectic mix of music created with the addition of other extraordinary musicians he’s had the pleasure to work with.
