In an industry fueled by creativity and talent, only those who embrace their uniqueness can leave a legacy that will live on for years on end. Such is the case with Jared Harper, a singer and songwriter whose career has revolutionized the music scene in ways no one could have ever imagined. With an old soul and a remarkable talent, the artist brings the pop/rock genre to a whole new level.
Although he has already established a reputable standing in the music scene with his solo debut in 2018, Jared Harper has once again taken center stage with his amazing cover of “Dynamite” by BTS. Despite having a reputation for gravitating towards older songs, the artist gave the internet a pleasant surprise with a BTS cover that showcases his jazzy and funky groove. Sure enough, this rising star knows how to keep his fans up on their toes.
Born and raised in San Francisco, California, Jared Harper is best known for earning over 650,000 views on YouTube for his blind audition of The Voice Season 18. In the said performance, he took everyone’s breath away with his rendition of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones, where he performed his unique acoustic version of the classic hit.
Since dipping his toes into the industry, Jared Harper has garnered over 45,000 streams on his standout single “About You,” released in February 2021. Most recently, on May 14, 2021, he was able to unleash the ultimate party-rock earworm in his alt-indie-rock anthem, “All for Me,” which highlighted vintage Strokes-inspired bouncing guitars and built a tension that cut right through the song’s verses. The said song was created in collaboration with Josh Tyrrell, who recorded the instrumentals as well as mixed and mastered the single in Telstar Studios (London).
According to the singer and songwriter, “All for Me” was written as a thunder-cracking form of encouragement to never miss out on the good times nor to let others miss out on all the fun. On a mission to boost everyone’s mood in 2021, Jared Harper continues to breathe life into the song.
“It resonates today more than it did back then. I am hoping that ‘All for Me’ will inspire people to loosen up and allow themselves to break out of the moments they are stuck in,” Jared Harper explained. “I wanted an upbeat, passionate, and energetic song that anyone can rock out to. Thus, I created ‘All for Me.’ I can’t wait to get back out on the scene, perform live, and interact with a crowd,” the artist added.
Immensely fueled by his desire to merge the music of the 50s, 60s, and 70s into modern sound, Jared Harper separates himself from a sea of artists in the industry. As a matter of fact, his single, “If I Can’t Have You,” speaks volumes about his character as an artist and has created a buzz in the international music and radio scene.
As can be gleaned from his flourishing career, Jared Harper has a penchant for capturing his audience almost instantaneously with his catchy rhythms and melodies. With music that transcends diverse age groups and meaningful lyrics that are also relatable, he appeals to listeners of all ages and walks of life.
Above anything else, Jared Harper is hailed for being charming and witty on stage when performing in front of his fans. Without a doubt, it is only a matter of time before this must-watch artist becomes a household name.
