Born and raised in the Midwest, Jered grew up working on his grandparents farm where the transistor radio hanging in the barn was tuned to the local country station. The inspiring voices of George Strait, Alan Jackson, Joe Diffie, and many more echoed off the walls every day. One of his earliest memories is sitting next to his grandmother at the piano while she taught him the notes. Guitar, drums, and singing naturally followed and he started his first band in high school. Jered’s musical endeavors progressed professionally once he moved to Chicago for college. While obtaining his bachelor’s degree, he moonlighted in various bands around the city. Over the years the genres of the groups he played with spanned from rock to country. In 2015, the decision was made to move to Nashville. Before boxes were even unpacked he was hired by ‘The World Famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge’ where he soon was playing 5 nights a week with a band of players that he hand picked. Drummer, Robert Blair (Kellie Pickler, Clay Walker, Aaron Tippin), guitarist Aaron Currie (Josh Turner, Craig Campbell), and Grammy nominated bassist Jeremy Middleton (Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen). Today, they have been playing 200+ shows a year in Nashville as well as private engagements around the US. His debut single "Rearview" was released May 2021 and he will be releasing more music throughout the year that will echo the 90's country icons he was inspired by growing up.
