The best kept secret in music


"Julie / Pipeline Productions"

"So far everyone who has seen The Farewell has been completely blown away. In a smaller city that can sometimes seem over-saturated with similar sounding bands The farewell stands out as proof that some people still play music because they love it, and that love comes through in the songs." - (

"103.3FM KSCU"

“[The Farewell] is just a sample of what goes on in the depths of such cities as this one and we are lucky enough to have been reached by them. I find it amazing that such bands can reach us with what little means they have…They are much more talented than most quirky indie garage bands and have potential. The singer is more than decent and knows how to use emotion through his voice." - Santa Clara, CA


“It’s nice to see bands break the boundaries of what is new and hot and come off with a refreshing new sound that is still mass appeal. The Farewell has what it takes.”
- 96.5FM The Buzz

"Jake Rast"

“Carefully fused, multi-stylistic elements executed with professional precision. The Farewell weaves a refreshingly honest and colorful fabric of positive, life-full music...They play from the heart with their soul intact.”
