Passionate and Powerful--two words that describe Jared Blake and his music. He brings his deep vocals and emotional delivery to every performance, and he has the same passion for his fans that he has for his music.
He is known to the world as a father of six kids, and he sees it as a natural extension to take care of his fans as well. He doesn't separate his life from his music; it is a blend of family, fans, and friends, whom he has nicknamed “frands.”
Jared Blake was raised on watermelons and Rock N’ Roll. Growing up in the small town of Star City, Arkansas, he always had dreams of performing on the big stage. That didn’t stop him from taking his time growing up and learning everything he could about the music business, including songwriting and playing multiple instruments. He realizes that the music industry is forever changing, and he likes to change and grow with it.
Jared would be the first one to tell you, “The second I think I know what’s going on, it all turns upside down again.” He also says that’s what keeps him writing, dreaming, working, and just being himself. That same willingness to keep going, even into the unknown, is what landed him on national television.
In 2011, Jared found himself on a new adventure, appearing on what turned out to be a #1 rated show on NBC, “The Voice.” With Blake Shelton to guide him, he did what any regular ol’ country boy would do--he rocked it. He was just as happy on stage alone with his acoustic guitar, with 14 million viewers watching him sing “Not Ready To Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks, as he was performing the rock tune “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon, in a guitarthrowing, fullout passionate display.
