Jared Weintraub’s music is accessible, relaxed, and bright-eyed, a collection of anthems for barefoot summers, young romances, and carefree attitudes. His debut EP, Full Band (released in September 2012), is easy on the ears and can be played again and again without losing its appeal to the casual listener. But for those who take the time to digest Jared’s music, the young artist displays creativity, soul, and natural talent typical of a musician far beyond his years.
Throughout the EP, his soulful vocals, insightful lyrics, and soothing, positive style beg comparison to John Mayer, Ray Lamontagne, Bob Dylan, the Lumineers, and The Beatles. His EP also showcases stirring melodies, accenting airy rhythms with electric guitar flourishes and showing off a range of musical styles from rock to folk to reggae.
The result is a catchy, understandable, fun, and thoughtful recording that leaves the listener with the sense that Weintraub has much more in store.
Born in the suburbs of New York City, Jared began a precocious musical career when, at the ripe age of 12, he picked up the guitar and taught himself to play in order to support his love of singing. At 14, he was playing solo shows in Manhattan. After graduating from the University of Delaware, Weintraub and his collegiate acapella group, The Deltones, made it to the top 10 on the NBC reality show, “The Sing Off.” Jared has played to audiences in excess of 5,000 people, opened for James Maddock at New York’s historic Towne Crier Café, and maintains a loyal fan base that grows every day.
His songwriting and singing skills are strong and are delivered with sincerity and passion. Jared Weintraub is clearly an artist on the rise.
