Zul Faden's upcoming public gig:
-Late April at Airport Mall.

Widely known as Zul F, and affectionately called Zul by his friends, Zul Faden is a well-known singer in the little oil-rich country of Brunei Darussalam. Once a part of the local group Pneumatic Soulz, he is now arguably the most successful Bruneian solo artist.
The road to musical passion was neither easy nor straight-forward. At age 7 Zul Faden’s father brought him to the Brunei stadium where, unbeknownst to him, he was expected to perform with his Kindergarten friends in front of an audience. The revelation so shocked Zul Faden that he ran back to the car in tears.
But music was always in his blood. As a child, Zul Faden could be found humming to himself. His aunt would ask him to record the English radio shows broadcast on Brunei’s airwaves and the two would happily enjoy the music into the night.
An opportune time came during his high school years at St. Andrews. Zul Faden and his friends auditioned for the school’s talent competition. Ironically, they won not for singing but for dancing. The stage, however, was set and Zul Faden found himself performing in front and audience during the school’s Teacher’s Day celebration.
It seemed that Zul Faden was on his way to singing under the spotlight. More encouragement arrived while he was studying in Jerudong International School. While studying at JIS, another talent competition presented itself in Talent Quest and Zul Faden jumped at the chance to compete. This time he emerged as champion and discovered the draw of being an entertainer.
Time came to pursue higher education and Zul Faden opted to study in Perth. The Land Down Under provided him with yet another opportunity for the star-in-the-making to shine. Zul Faden enrolled in an Artist Development Program and once again passed the auditions. But tragic news would arrive at his door step within the first year of his studies: his parents divorced. Being the ever-responsible eldest son Zul Faden chose to give up his place in the program and return home to be by his mother’s side.
Enrolling in the local University of Brunei Darussalam Zul Faden began preparing for a career in education. But it was 2005 that marked the turning point for the enthusiastic singer. Zul Faden passed the auditions for Bakat, a local talent search competition. But fate decided to throw a curve ball forcing Bakat to cancel further concerts. Fortunately Passport 2 Fame, Brunei’s First Reality Talent Show, crowned Zul Faden as their first champion. In that same year, Zul Faden recorded “Engkau Adalah Cinta” in Kuala Lumpur and performed the song in Malaysia’s Selayang Stadium. Zul Faden also sang for His Majesty The Sultan of Brunei’s 60th Birthday.
The next 2 years was an over-whelming time for Zul Faden as he was whisked away to live the life of a celebrity. Not only did he launch his first single, “Bersama Bintang” in Brunei, he became Brunei’s first artist to debut a music video, “Dari Mata” on MTV Asia.
2011 marks the year that Zul Faden will release his first full album. A collaboration with Lily Chiam & Hans Anwar, the album will feature 10 songs. The songs range from ballads to pop, R&B and soul. The album is slated for release on October 22nd.Despite having a foot in the high-flying life, Zul Faden is an easy-going person with a good sense of humour. He realizes that he has been blessed and stresses a connection to God as guide.
What does the future hold for Zul Faden? He hopes to one day collaborate with Malaysia’s Dayang Nurfaizah, Indonesia’s Afgan, Philippines’ Jay-R and Roselle Nova and the fabulous Mariah Carey.

As a composer
Zul Faden continues to display his love for music by writing songs, either by himself or in collaboration with other artists.
Zul Faden actually started writing as a teenager but had not built confidence to sing his own songs. Early in his career he relied on producers from Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore to write songs for him. After translating “Where Can I Go?” (a song by Lily Chiam) into “Manaku Pergi”, he started believing in his own abilities. He continues to write songs and has a collection for future projects.
Below are some of the songs he has written to date.
  1. Hadirmu Disisi (co-written by Zul Faden & Pneumatic Soulz)
  2. Will I Ever (co-written by Zul Faden & Brian Idris)
  3. Takkan Lagi Ku Tangisi (co-written by Zul Faden & Mirul)
  4. I Don’t Want Love songs (co-written by Zul Faden & Hans Anuar)
  5. Selamanya
  6. Kasih
  7. Melodi Cinta Kita
  8. Don’t Wanna
  9. Jangan Sesali
  10. Speechless
  11. Manaku Pergi
