Pop artist Jared Sagal, who combines the driving sounds of alternative rock with the storytelling slant of a classic singer-songwriter, has announced his debut EP is available March 1, 2008.
From the irresistible jangle and hook of the opener "Over Me" to the emotional build and retrospection of "Holding Pattern," Jared Sagal is a extraordinarily talented songwriter, musician and performer who has the unique ability to meld music, word and meaning in a way that captures every element of his passion for music. From sensitive guitar lines to anthemic and powerful rock choruses, Jared Sagal delivers a sound that is original and recognizeable, yet void of any common formula.
The EP was recorded with the same lineup of musician's that backed Alannis Morisette on "Jagged Little Pill," and was mixed and engineered by Grammy Award-winner Tom Weir. Steve Plunkett, formerly of the supergroup Autograph, produced the album.
Raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Jared Sagal played professional soccer in Sweden and Germany, where he spent his downtime singing and playing guitar in underground stations and town squares. He moved to Dallas in 1997, where he quickly became a top local act and earned opening spots for national touring bands like Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Toadies, The Nixons and the Rollins Band.
In 2002 he was nominated for "Best Band" by the Dallas Observer Music Awards. In February 2004 Jared was featured on the Fender Records/Rhino Records/Ocean Pacific "Emerging Stars" CD -- a worldwide sampling of up-and-coming artists.
Jared currently lives in Los Angeles, where he performs at notable venues like the Whisky-a-Go-Go, The Roxy and The Cat Club. Recently, Jared's music video for his single "SAY IT " was inducted into the EATV video music Hall of Fame after appearing in the top 5 for more than 13 weeks in a row. Jared also just finished his second video for the song " OVER ME " shot and directed by Toni award winner Mark Meadoff. This could be your last chance to say you were into Jared Sagal before anybody!
