Jared & The Mill
"Being in a band, playing and traveling till your boots blow out, and recording in the studio are labors of love, often as rewarding and joyful as they are taxing, and we thank you for joining us on our journey."
When we first started Jared & The Mill in the summer of 2011 we didn't have a clue where our sound was heading. Between our six band members we had more than our fair share of musical influences that had grown throughout our lives and our time in college. In truth, we were all more or less invested in other musical projects at that time, but it was our surprising ease in working together and our almost effortless camaraderie that made the arrangement of our group so enjoyable. After one show we played another, and then another, and as things often go we were quite suddenly on the local scene, playing alongside the band's of new friends and old throughout the Phoenix area and the state of Arizona. Over that year our sound developed and molded into a sound we really can't nor intend to put a name to, and it continues to change to this day.
In 2012 and into 2013 we were some busy fellas, building our relationships with ourselves, with our music and with our fans. We started adding some new songs to our lineup, toured throughout the southwest in California and New Mexico, and continued to play with local and national acts like Flogging Molly, Cake, The Killers, Y La Bamba, Joe Pug, and Horse Feathers. We were well received in Austin Texas during South By Southwest at our showcase and had a great homecoming from Austin playing at the St. Patricks day Festival with Flogging Molly. At McDowell Mountain Music Festival we made some great memories landing a spot on the same bill as Heartless Bastards, The Roots, and The Shins. From there things continued to grow and we felt ready to record our first album in the month of June.
Western Expansion is a record that speaks for where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. A few of our oldest tunes have made it onto the album, and some that were composed only weeks before recording. If there's one common influence on an artist's work, I think it's certainly the landscape in which they live. Our music has been called, compared, and regarded in many ways, and we've been influenced and molded by many things, but I'd like to think that some shred of the southwest, of our home, can be found at the heart of our music. We're all born and raised in the state of Arizona after all, and we truly hope we can to do our state proud. Being in a band, playing and traveling till your boots blow out, and recording in the studio are labors of love, often as rewarding and joyful as they are taxing, and we thank you for joining us on our journey. With that, we hope you like the tunes, and share it with your loved ones.
We'll see you down the road,
Jared & The Mill.
Leadville Cherokee is an alternative rock band from Leadville, Colorado. Their style incorporates a variety of important musical genres and tones that range from, but are not limited to, rock, reggae, bluegrass, jam, folk, funk, hip-hop, alternative, and blues. For the members of the group, music, amongst many other adrenaline-pumping mountain activities, is not just a hobby, but a way of life. Living in the highest city in the U.S. (Leadville, Colorado), puts the band members in a unique part of the world. The music is not only extension of the outdoor lifestyle, but a way for the group to express themselves and the trials of mountain life. Most importantly, the talent always encourages audience members to boogie-down at one of their diverse-sounding, energy-driven shows.
As a strong pressence in Colorado, Jonah Wisneski has been contributing to Denver's burgeoning music scene for the last few years. After spending time as a session player, touring/recording/playing with various musical acts in Colorado, Jonah is finally letting his own voice be heard with a new band and a new record.
A guitarist/singer/composer, Jonah Wisneski spent the last few years working on his own music in between his time spent with other bands. Enlisting close friends (Colorado musical mainstays: The Fox Street All-Stars and Kinetix) to join him in the studio, it was time to work out the sound he was hearing in his head.
"I entered the studio a while back with a batch of songs, and ideas how they would be arranged. Josh Fairman (Kinetix) signed on to produce/engineer/play on the record, and he was pivotal in helping this come together. From there,Fox Street All Stars joined in, and were playing on songs until we had reached a point where everyone could feel good about the sounds we were getting. It kind of snowballed when musicians like Nate Barnes (drums) of Rose Hill Drive, and Bill McKay (Piano) of Leftover Salmon contributed. The results were exactly what I was hoping for."
Now, with a record on the way, the live band has found it's stride playing rhythm & blues soaked rock, rooted with sounds of Americana and more. The approach is to blend contemporary and classic ideas into a sound that is uniquely its own, yet newly familiar.
"I want the focus to be on the songs. I've got a great band that can put on a great live show, but I want the songs to be great in any environment, whether it's live or on your stereo."
The result, is a debut record due this summer. Hours of recording culled down to a cohesive sound that represents only the tip of the iceberg. Featuring members of Leftover Salmon, Rose Hill Drive, Kinetix and Fox Street All Stars, the record will showcase some of the country's best musicians. With numerous shows on the horizon, the future is looking bright.
