The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


I do not have an album out yet because I have never been able to afford a decent enough quality sounding recording I want to represent my sound. But the title of my first LP will be Madhouse on Castle St. I hope to get that recorded and produced in the first half of this year.


Feeling a bit camera shy


My name is Jared and I was born and raised in San Francisco. I am a folk singer/songwriter, with influences such as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and John Lennon. I began writing my own material in the summer of 2005 and quickly started playing open mics. As soon as that happened I was getting showcases all over the city.I feel what made me stand out so fast was my passion on stage and my politically based lyrics. After a year of that I felt that I needed new experiences and fresh music scenes. So I bought a van and started driving south. I played open mics all over southern California, Arizona(even playing a folk festival in Flagstaff) and Nevada. Getting great responses everywhere I went I thought I was ready for yet another change. So I sold the van in Reno and flew to New York to experience the music scene there. I have been living here for a few months and playing almost every single night that I can. I have continued to get feedback and landed a few showcases out here. I am ready for more experiences and will be taking bus and train across the country, back to the west coast but stopping in a few great music cities along the way. My top priority is to pass through Austin during the week of South by Southwest and hoping to play for some people and meet some great musicians. I have to keep living my dream.
