BandRockClassical

A blend of "fragile vocals" mixed with edgy guitars, industrial effects, cinematic string sections, and ghostly pianos make this project stand out like nothing else. Jared's writing was recently noted for placing top ten (out of 15,000) in the CBC Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge.

Biography

LunarTheory Concept

For Producer/Artist Jared Robinson, “LunarTheory” has been the hardest project to define since it’s creation in 2004. The project hasn’t easily fit into any of the molds created by the music industry, and has stood apart from anything visually in the design community. Jared’s love for music combined with his love for fantasy and film makes for a unique blend of sonic/visual art. Simply put, LunarTheory is a fantasy world that you are meant to get lost in. Welcome to it.

Jared Robinson’s Artist Bio

Recording artist Jared Robinson grew up in the prairies (Canada) and has always held close his love for art and music. Over the years, Jared has been involved with a number of bands, some of which were nominated for some of the country's most prestigious music awards (Sweetsalt), not to exclude winning an award for Best Independent Pop Recording in Canada. Singles from two of Sweetsalt’s recordings received major air time on radio stations across the country. The reach of Jared's (and his band mates) music extended into the USA and beyond, earning international exposure on "Dawson's Creek" and "Party of Five" DVD series. But, just when his music career seemed to be at its peek, neither Jared nor the other band members felt they were doing what they should be in their careers. For years it had been hard, each member wanting to go his own way with music styles, not having the support of the others. Seven years of playing in "one of the country's most promising pop bands" came to a close one evening when the 3 band mates decided to move on to different musical endeavors. The time had come for Jared to experiment with his own personal sound. Since Jared has been known for his "pretty" background vocals/harmonies he began playing with the idea of putting them on the front-line. Crunchy guitars, ghostly pianos and epic string sections followed and quickly formed a sound that began a buzz, not only in his home town, but across the globe. Jared's dream of a crisp new brand of Canadian pop had come together. Soon a network of like-minded musicians, promoters and fans gelled around this exciting new art form. After being captured by tracks like "Follow" and "You Talk of Angels", few would guess that Jared had composed, arranged, performed and produced all of the songs on the LunarTheory recordings. He knew that in order to get the sound he wanted, there was no room for compromise. While challenging, the course was obvious... he would have to record most of his ideas on his own. Creating and recording original sounds and styles has always been the fuel that makes Jared Robinson tick. His expanding base of loving new fans, as well as the old, has proved to be an affirmation of Jared's unquenchable quest for new sonic and rhythmic experiences, allowing him to press forward. Since the beginning of Jared’s solo career in music, he has been nominated for an award in graphic design, recognized for his compositions in independent films and television as well as receiving “honorable mention” in the top ten finalists (out of 15,000 submissions) for the nation-wide “Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge”. Jared will also be composing the theme for the Saskatchewan Games starting in 2010. Music has always been and will continue to be the driving force in his life.

Lyrics

Beautiful Dark Dreams (Little Red Hood)

Written By: Jared Robinson

Don't run before I finish talking. You need to make sure you watch where you're walking. Do you know your way? You've never gone alone...until today.

Chorus:
Where are you? You're getting lost on beautiful dark dreams. You're walking far. Don't walk too far from home.

It's too late. "What big eyes you have.""It's all the better to have a look at you."

Chorus
(Instrumental bridge)
Chorus

You Talk of Angels

Written By: Jared Robinson

You say you never sleep. Your mind goes six feet deep. You try to tell me that you're sober. It's happily ever over.

Chorus:
What do you see when you're all by yourself? You can't breath. You talk of angels. You talk of angels.

You talk like it's concret. Let's see where the story leads. The pages turning...eyes are tearing. I can't believe what I'm hearing.

Chorus
(Instrumental Bridge)
You talk of angels.
You talk of angels.
Chorus

7 That Will Miss You (The Death of Snow White)

Written By: Jared Robinson

You lay behind the glad. So beautiful it's like time won't pass.

Chorus:
You said to stand up tall. Do I have the strength to stand at all? It never feels like enough to make it through. There are seven that will miss you.

Deceived by a bite. No help to be found. No breath at all. Your knees hit the ground.

Chorus
(Instrumental bridge)
Chorus

Thimble

Written By: Jared Robinson

Tell me another story Wendy ...of a world I knew. ...of buttoned suits and grown-ups who just want the best for you. Let me tell you a story Wendy ...of family. ...of funerals and seasons lost. ...could you make a home with me? I’d come with you if you asked me to. I’d give up this for just this one kiss. I know you think I don’t understand what it means to leave neverland. I’d grow old for you. ...if you asked me to. I don’t think you know what I’m asking Wendy. I’ve never had to cry. A thimble for a kiss and then we had to say goodbye.

Fall Awake

Written By: Jared Robinson

What will she think of me? We just met once I think I must confess. ...but honestly it would have taken less. Your skin is so cold. Are you just asleep? I’ll close my eyes...one kiss is all I’d take. I hope true love will help you fall awake. Don’t be afraid. It’s me. Your waking eyes are so tender. You try to remember. The love that you thought that you lost is now holding you. She might have a hard time seeing. So much she might just sit up screaming ...but I’m here now. I have to reach her but I don’t know how?

Discography

LunarTheory - Self Titled (2005)
LunarTheory - Familiar Stories (2008)

The newest CD "Familiar Stories" (2008) proved its worth with 4 songs placed in independent films ("Season of Dreams", "Roommate Wanted", "Send in the Clowns" and "A Girl in Red"). Jared's most recent acclaim perhaps was his honorable mention for the "CBC Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge". Jared's anthem ranked in the top 10 out of 15,000 entries. Since, Jared has been approached by major video game music directors and will also be writing the theme for the 2010 Saskatchewan Games.

Singles from the self-titled debut were featured on 2 compilation albums as well as getting some television airtime on the program "Renegade Press.com". 3 singles were played on dozens of college/indie radio stations across North America/UK as well as on CBC 3 satellite radio. The independent video for "Follow" was played on several independent blog websites and I expect nothing less for the new video.
