Jared began writing music by ear on the piano and studying the viola from a young age. Although he didn't take piano lessons until college, he writes primarily on the piano.
His debut solo album, "The Last Mile", came out in 2005. He has subsequently released four albums including "Edge of Darkness", "Synergy", "Between These Walls", "Spectrum", and culminating in his most recent release "B-Sides from the Closet" which was released in October 2015.
He draws heavily in his music from the influences of film music and he writes much of his music as a "soundtrack for life".
