As a forerunner of the Midwest "garage soul" movement, Jared Mahone fills out singer/songwriter tunes as a dynamic, live looping solo performer or with a full band.
Jared Mahone has patiently turned hometown open mic night glory into a humble career as a nationally touring independent musician. His raw, acoustic songs and storytelling are inspired by Jared's upbringing in a touring family band who fed his musical appetite with the writing of Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Sting.
Despite regional recognition as the 2013 Verizon Indie Icon, national recognition from his appearance as musical guest on Katie Couric's ABC daytime talk show, or being named Best Male Artist in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, Jared dismisses fame chasing. Instead, he favors a troubadour-style trudge across the country meeting new supporters one handshake at a time.
Jared pursues his version of success crafting inspired moments into original, palatable pop art that speaks on and to the human condition. He creates a sense of intimacy no matter how large the stage wrapping crowds into a narrative of which they ultimately become the subject.
Jared is currently writing, recording, and on tour full-time performing concerts around the country.
