As a songwriter, Jared Young combines his ear for fresh melodies with a poet’s hand for inventive lyric writing. His live shows are intense and energetic, and his genuine emotional involvement in his performances draws his listeners into the experience with him. Young’s heartland songs, packed with pop hooks, poetic lyrics and American sentiments, are delivered with tremendous enthusiasm and sincerity.

Of Jared's music IndieMusicStop.com writes “The main thread that ties all of the songs together is Young’s vocals, they’re powerful, passionate, crisp, and take ownership of each of the songs. Jared’s music will appeal to fans of artist like Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, and Coldplay.”

At 14, Jared discovered The Police. At 15, Live Aid changed his life’s direction. At 17, he got his first paying gig, culminating in a performance a few years later at Little Rock's Riverfest Music Festival - a closing spot on the main stage, playing to 30,000 people.

Originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, Jared now lives in Los Angeles and has garnered a steady following through live shows and the internet.  “Uncomfortable Skin” was the second single released from the  So Many Miles, and Jared donated the proceeds from I-Tunes sales to the non- profit Global Scholarship Fund, which helps underprivileged women around the world receive a college education.

Jared’s highlights from recent performances include a 12-date tour in the UK with appearances in London, Newcastle, Sunderland, Tyne, as well as at Amity Fletcher’s famous “Big Secret” night at Ginglik, and the “CORE Industry Showcase at Storm” in the heart of Leicester Square.

In North America, Jared’s Montreal fan club prepared the setlist for a great show at “The Vault” when Jared toured Quebec, and memorable crowds came out for the Harper County 4th of July Festival in Kansas and the Riverwalk Ampitheater show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Jared also performed at the Temecula Valley Song and Film Festival, and the “First Friday’s Festival” in Las Vegas, Nevada.  You can also check out Jared in his hometown residency gig every Thursday night at the Shore in Hermosa Beach (check calendar for details).

As Jared's popularity grows, so does his fan base. Jared Young Street Teams have been formed in over seven US states and two cities in Quebec, CA (Montreal and Jonquierre).

Jared's music can be heard in a number of independent films including Life, Death, and Mini- Golf; Gone But Not Forgotten; and Speed Trap. Most recently, Jared's song, "Push" was placed in Four Winds Pictures' short feature, Animus Road.

Brian Lush, of RockWired.com says, "[Young's new album is] is a gritty collection of earnest and heartfelt rockers. Yes, Young is a troubadour with his heart on his sleeve and a wide yet modest grin."

CD Baby raves, “Welcome back, middle America, you have a new champion. Jared Young takes acoustic rock to a new level with his Stickman Music debut So Many Miles. For everyone that misses the honesty and hooks of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen - listen up.”
