Jared Evan is an American singer-songwriter, producer, and rapper from New York. Jared is the strong, silent type, with lyrical prowess, a creative mind, and vast musical talent. His laid-back, gentle nature gives off the impression he's somewhat of an introvert, though his vibe tells another story of a cool guy without trying to be. He started by playing the drums, inspired by Keith Moon. His strong desire to be a professional drummer evolved into learning several other instruments. Eventually, Jared focused on production and singing, incorporating rap while introducing melodic undertones to his productions. In 2008 at the age of 18, Jared won the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival's Spit 16 competition curated by The Source Magazine.

In 2012, Jared released his debut EP titled "The 4th Chapter". Jared helped write and produced a large portion of Hoodie Allen's mixtape, "Crew Cuts," before releasing his collaboration album with Statik Selektah entitled "Boom Bap & Blues" on February 26, 2013. "Boom Bap & Blues" features artists like Joey Badass, Action Bronson, and several others. Originally released as a free album through Jared's website, days later, Jared's massive cult fan following caused the album to debut at No. 29 on the Top R&B/Soul charts, and within a couple of hours, it shot to No. 8. "Boom Bap & Blues" is said to be some of Jared's best work and has become critically acclaimed.‚Äč Evan's musical style combines Soul, Hip Hop, and Pop with Alternative Rock and Alternative R&B influences. He is known for an introspective songwriting style, often citing Bradley Nowell, The Beatles, Radiohead, Mos Def, Stevie Wonder, Rza, DJ Premier, and early Coldplay as his main influences.
