Jared Adams

Acoustic Alternative Folk Rock


Jared Adams describes his music as heavy folk, a mixture of soft, gentle acoustic guitars leading into soaring, distorted choruses laden in reverb. Often drawing on past experiences, his lyrics are a memoir of his life entombed in a shell of pop music. It’s this eclectic mix of sweet, poppy goodness and grandiose, acoustic epics that has Jared’s music subverting expectations.

Hailing from the often freezing depths of Winnipeg, MB, Jared has seen success playing in numerous bands including touring act, Colour By Numbers. This summer, he made his debut performance with his new band at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival.

Recently he began releasing a series of live videos consisting of covers and acoustic renditions of original music which also showcase his award winning cinematography. Currently he is working on his first album, which he's set to record at Private Ear in October 2019 entitled “Tragic Nostalgia” which explores the theme of growing old and still trying to hold on to the things you knew when you were younger.
