Singer/songwriter Jared Mahone has been touring nationally from the inside out for nearly a decade impressing audiences with a wide-range of talents drawing from Ohio soul, story-teller poets, pop melodies, and even classic hip hop. He unexpectedly hands an audience a sound they didn’t realized they would love, coupling transparent venerability with his Midwest “garage soul” sonics. Jared’s everyman persona connects in a deep and lasting way across a wide spectrum of what are often disconnected cultures within America. His latest album, Mixtape, was created from a crowd-focused and crowd-inspired song-a-week writing project where his fan base chose the track listing from the completed catalog. It was produced by Jerry DePizzo of multi-platinum jam-rock band O.A.R., mixed by Grammy winner Mike Landolt (Maroon 5) and mastered by Grammy winner Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Dr. John, Beck), all who work from Jared’s hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
