"Farees is a Mega Talent and a disciple of Jimi Hendrix. He has combined that spirit and soul with his own style. For sure, Farees may help usher in a new era of Music. The road he has taken, could very well lead him to sit alongside the Music Masters."
BILLY COX - THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE, THE BAND OF GYPSYS
"Farees reminds me of the greats. He's got that Stevie Wonder/Jimi Hendrix vibe yet he's doing his very own thing. Ain't nobody around playing and grooving like him. He's unique and he's a superstar! I'm really glad to be a part of this project."
LEO NOCENTELLI - THE METERS
“This is the most amazing movement to happen with this great music! The welcome return home to Africa! Farees is amazing! The new record is nothing short of outstanding!!"
“Brother Farees carries ancient spirits direct from the Black pool of genius. This story is true Black 'ourstory'. Farees has taken the old wisdom and has come up with new music that puts you in a trance while it bids you to dance.”
“Mississippi to Sahara is a great record. I love it, and I love how it sounds. I can only imagine the wonderful songs to come from Farees in the future”
"Border Patrol is an important album at a crucial time. It is filled with soulful riffs and straight up vocals from the heart. This is an essential album. Get it now!"

Farees has a rich heritage of many cultures and a fertile and robust background in music. With Farees mom being of Tuareg (Black and Berber) ancestry, and his dad being of Italian and German heritage – all of this gives meaning to his embracing of the planet and call to make a difference through his music.
