Jared M.

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

I have my antennas perked and set to receive the strongest frequencies. What comes out is simply my conversion into words and melody of how I may feel about a particular situation. The song is the most important part of my performance. Each has a different perspective and something to say.

Biography

Giving Pop music a fresh, thinking face, Jared Menane sets out to delicately fabricate melody as a springboard for intelligent lyric. His humor and heart present two contrasts on the stage as a performer, yet work together to grab the audiences attention. His lanky 6 ft frame stands poised, feet together, eyes closed, neck cranked back while he absorbs the moment. You might forget you're actually there until he finishes the song, because at any point within the performance Jared seems to escape reality, and invites the rest of the audience to join him. One can appreciate his passion and his hunger to include everyone in his escape. Indie, pop, soul, whatever you call it...it's music with genuine desire.

Influences include:
John Mayer
Ben Gibbard
Justin Vernon
Ray LaMontagne
Chris Martin
Matt Wertz
Dallas Green
John, Paul, George, and Ringo.

Lyrics

Redemption Song of a Love Gone Wrong

Written By: Jared Menane

Verse
Boy: Lead me towards the light, stand me before the sun

Girl: I ain’t letting go til what’s done is done is done

B: Find me in the yard, laying in the grass

G: I’ll find you in the yard, where your ship is sinking fast

B: Write it on the walls, this is my mourner’s song

G: I wont write it on the walls ‘til your gone your gone your gone

Chorus (Boy and Girl together)
I aint got no substitute, my faiths in you
I wont believe this love is through, ‘til you do too
I aint got no substitute, my faiths in you
I’ll believe this love is true when you do too

Verse
B: I messed up, I know it shows; this shame is all I wear

G: When you messed up I cried so hard I had no tears to spare

B: I cant imagine what you felt when you found my sin

G: My heart broke and all I felt were tears roll down my chin

Chorus

Verse
B: learn from my mistakes by this time you should know

G: That these were ones you were bound to make I know I know I know

B: I have no words to express how sorry that I am

G: I knew that you were when I turned and ran…I ran…I ran

B: You took off down the street I followed in pursuit

G: When you made your choice, how could you not, know this would ensue?

Chorus

Verse
B: What’s said is done, what’s done is gone; no more will we pretend

G: We learned our lesson, sang our song this is the end, the end, the end

B: So you forgive and I accept, what now should we do

Both: Lets lay our heads down to rest I just want to be with you…

G: ...Lay your head on my chest, I just wanna be with you

Obsessed

Written By: Jared Menane

Somehow, I hope that maybe
we'll be together one day baby.
And you can be my little lady
I can be your Warren Beatty...

Your lover on the silver screen
The king of aces to your queen.

Yes, I'm obsessed with you
I'm so obsessed with you
yes, I'm obsessed,
oh I'm so obsessed
I'm so obsessed with you.

But until then i sit here with my pen
pad of paper, play pretend.
Just wishing you would be my friend
just wishing you would be my friend
And, yes I've acted quite the fool
never saw my glass so full.
Together 'gainst the world we'd rule
together 'gainst the world we'd rule.

Yes, I know you're careless,
but you're scared as can be
But you got two eyes
that say they're feeling me.

Yes, I'm obsessed with you
I'm so obsessed with you
yes, I'm obsessed,
oh I'm so obsessed
I'm so obsessed with you.

Yes, I'm obsessed with you
Oh, I'm so obsessed with you
yes, I'm obsessed,
oh I'm so obsessed
I'm so obsessed with you.

Take my hand, we'll fly
to the deepest part of the night
C'mon, take my hand we'll fly
to the deepest part of the night

Yes, I'm obsessed with you
Oh, I'm so obsessed with you
yes, I'm obsessed,
oh I'm so obsessed
I'm so obsessed with you.

Tongue Tied

Written By: Jared Menane

I'm avant-garde like the 60's
I've got room to move about
'Cus with you I can improvise almost everything around

Your little imperfections are what I admire most
Your beat up boots, that old flower dress and
The freckles on your nose

Chorus:

Tongue tied and terrified and words cannot express
How much I love you lady, darling you’re the best
Tongue tied and terrified, weak at the knees
I would do most anything if you only you say please

Verse

You’re worth waiting on forever times two
And I would walk grave-yards at night, to be next to you
Oh you take me as I am, that’s why I’m head and heels over
I’m the luck’est boy in town, and you’re my four-leaf clover

Chorus:

Tongue tied and terrified and words just cant express
How much I love you baby, you’re the best
Tongue tied and terrified, weak at the knees
I would do most anything if you only you say please
Baby, say please

Repeat Chorus
