JARED & THE MILL
Jared & The Mill is a southwestern indie rock band, formed in 2011 in Phoenix, AZ. The band has spent the past few years touring extensively through the venues, dives, theaters, festivals, and arenas of the U.S. and Canada, playing alongside new burgeoning bands and established acts, and developing a strong and rooted fan base along the way. The band has multiple and successful independent releases, the most recent 2016, Orme Dugas was recorded and produced by Ryan Hewitt in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Orme Dugas blurs lines to the point where the ambiguity becomes an asset unto itself, a record that sounds exactly like Jared & The Mill to the returning listener but a little more gray to a newcomer. It’s not rock, it’s not country, it’s not folk, but it’s not quite pop. So where do they fit? They’ve opened for the Zac Brown Band, the War on Drugs, Allen Stone, & the Killers, to name a few, and while it’s an impressive list, it’s a still a grab bag. Their undefinable nature is also their strongest weapon.” – K.C. Libman Phoenix New Times
As the band has stated, “Our music has been called, compared and regarded by a number of different names and genres, and we’ve been influenced and shaped by many different events and people, but more than anything, we’d like to think that some shred of the Southwest — of our home — can be found in the heart of our music.”
