Through the throngs of young singer-songwriters emerges Jared Strock. There is something distinctly likeable, instantly contagious, and tastefully simple about him and his music. Original and pure, unbridled talent gives the idea that this 23 year old is going to be doing this for a long while.
Jared has called Omaha home for the past 5 years, but still remains intimately connected to a ranch outside a small Wyoming town where he was born and raised. The down-to-earth, million dollar smile, boy next door shines through in Jared's music as well as his infectious personality. Strock's live show is a beautiful blend of musicianship, charisma, and talent. If you are lucky, you might even hear his jaw-dropping beatboxing skills that will make the rowdiest crowd drop silent.
The the debut release of Searching for Julie, Jared Strock enters the scene looking like a seasoned veteran. Since graduating college as a math teacher in 2006, Jared has effortlessly captured his songs about loving, losing, and moving on. Jared's blend of acoustic, pop, and folk rock holds a broad range of fans and listeners. His lyrics have been described as the shy, quiet kid in the corner supported by music that more fits the confident lady-killer with a turned up collar.
Jared is one artist you simply cannot miss. He may very well be one of the MidWest's best kept secrets. It seems this secret may not be hid much longer. The quiet kid in the corner has something to say…and we all better listen.
