Indie Music Stop Review of "Several Shots at Redemption" pre-release by writer C.W. Ross ...


"8.4 out of 10 ... Jared Young is back with his latest release, Several Shots at Redemption. This 12-song release offers up a blend of singer-songwriter, acoustic, and rock styles.

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.

My favorite tracks were: "More Than Perfect" - I liked the clean crisp sound found on it, "Meant to Be" - one of the more rock edged songs found on the release, and "People R Strange", which is the most unique song on the CD that puts forth a good message with the lyrics, "...do your own thing and you'll never regret it..."

Jared Young's music will appeal to fans of artist like Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, and Coldplay.
