Jared Mahone named Best Male Artist in the 11th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards

Columbus independent singer/songwriter Jared Mahone was just named Best Male Artist in the 11th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA). Mahone’s original song, “From: Joe To: Betsy” was submitted for the competition and won him the recognition, topping entries from more than six different countries along with an entry featuring Michael Buble. Pop artist Meghan Trainor is also a past IAMA recipient.

“I am honored to represent my Columbus music scene in an international competition,” Mahone said. “Receiving this award just makes for a bigger celebration in releasing this new acoustic EP in a few months. I can’t wait to get these new songs out to our crowd.”

Mahone has just finished recording his third album of his independent music career, a 5-song EP entitled “Content”. The EP is scheduled to release in April 2015. His latest full-length release, “Mixtape” also received national recognition as its original songs helped name Jared Mahone as Verizon’s Indie Icon, and got the attention of producers of the Katie Couric show who invited him to perform live on national network television.

Now, Mahone has partnered with PledgeMusic in New York City to launch a Web site where people can pre-order the new EP, as well as take part in special exclusives for a limited time. He believes that the music he creates should also support his local community, so he has decided to donate five percent of the pre-order sales to benefit Music Loves Ohio, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for children of all backgrounds in Central Ohio to learn, perform, and record music. Matt Crumpton, founder of Music Loves Ohio, also co-wrote one of the songs appearing on the new EP.

The IAMA reviews music from across the globe to recognize excellence in acoustic music performance and artistry. Along with Mahone receiving Best Male Artist, they also announced top winners in the following categories: Best Female Artist, Best Group/Duo, Folk/Americana, Instrumental, Alternative and Country/Bluegrass.

Back to the Recording Studio

After touring this summer from NYC all the way down to Gainesville, Florida with some stops for a few hometown shows right here in Columbus, I am proud to announce that I will be heading back into the recording studio for the remaining of the season. I will still be performing mostly local shows this August, but I have enough time in between gigs to breathe life into this next project. My plan is to have a new acoustic release this fall/winter, and I am very excited to share it with you all. These songs are long-time favorites leftover from The Mixtape Project, and I am excited to capture them in a new, unique way that I have never attempted before in the studio. Once this EP is completed, I will set sail on a national house concert tour, and I hope to be able to share these songs that are coming to a living room near you.
