Biography

Jared mesmerizes listeners by capturing the feel of an entire rhythm section with his style of solo piano arrangements. His energetic delivery has attracted thousands of listeners since the late 1990's. He is widely known for his ability to capture the raw emotions of events in our lives. This is never more apparent than on his holiday CD, Christmas in the Key of J, which was a poignant response to the sudden death of his brother-in-law less than a year prior to recording. Rather than wallowing in
sorrow, Jared was able to deal with the difficult loss by finding renewed joy in daily living. Christmas in the Key of J portrays that joy and combines the warmth of the holidays, offering a path to healing for everyone who has suffered a personal loss.

Jared developed a heightened sense of rhythm from studying percussion in high school and college. A frequent performer, he has
developed a technique of drumming on the piano and has been clocked playing blindfolded at lightning speed.

Christmas in the Key of J follows Jared’s debut album of original piano compositions, Piano Pop, which proved popular among critics and college students. Piano Pop musically conveys what was in his heart as he fell in love, got married, and became a father for the first time. His music gained quick notoriety, leading to a performance in conjunction with the Opening Ceremonies of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and other opportunities.

**Note: this is a different artist than the Jared Johnson who is lead singer for the roots-rock band the Jack Pines. Last.FM has mistakenly combined their pages, so some of the music on this site does not belong to Jared Johnson, the solo pianist.
