Born with six fingers and toes on each hand and foot, singer/songwriter Jarrett Dean (The Jar) was destined to become one of today's most prolific acoustic/rock/radio friendly songwriters. Jarrett has accumulated a large catalog of radio friendly songs and his most recent CD “Once Upon A Life (2011) ” has sold out at live performances and over-seas. He has become a very in-demand performer, playing six and seven days a week at various New Jersey, NYC, and Philadelphia venues. One of the shows even led to Jarrett appearing on VH1's Top 20 Video Countdown show. Jarrett has accumulated a whole catalog of radio friendly songs and regularly sells CDs at his shows, and to date, he has independently sold over 12,000 CDs at the many venues he performs.
Jarrett originally hails from the mid-west with a modern pop/rock sound comparable to artists such as Matchbox Twenty, Counting Crows, and the British Rock Movement of The Verve, Oasis, and Coldplay. Jarrett’s original work is exciting, inspirational, and refreshingly genuine. His catchy, rhythmic melodies quite simply capture your audio senses and leave you hankering for more as per the rate at which Jarrett’s independent CDs sell out at his shows! Listening to Jarrett’s music leaves no doubt whatsoever about his talents as an accomplished musician as well as the depth of feeling that is fuelling his desire to become globally recognized as a successful singer/songwriter.
Since moving to New Jersey, Jarrett quickly earned opening slots for artists such as Jewel, Bon Jovi, Duncan Sheik, Jars Of Clay, Matchbox 20, Tonic, LIVE, and many other known pop/rock artists at venues such as the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park.
