His EP also showcases stirring melodies, accenting airy rhythms with electric guitar flourishes and showing off a range of musical styles from rock to folk to reggae. From “Angel/Devil” and “Why Won’t it Rain,” instant classics in which his laid-back style gives way to awe-stricken love, to “Positivity,” a reggae-tinted testament to the optimistic outlook he carries in his day-to-day life, the Full Band EP is an easy, feel-good listen time and time again. Before it can be reduced to nonchalant beach tunes, though, the EP expands its horizons with “Stand Up,” a call to attention for this generation to open its eyes and take action to change a world that often seems out of our control. The result is a catchy, understandable, fun, and thoughtful recording that leaves the listener with the sense that Weintraub has much more in store. Born in the suburbs of New York City, Jared began a precocious musical career when, at the ripe age of 12, he picked up the guitar and taught himself to play in order to support his love of singing. At 14, he was playing solo shows in Manhattan.
By 2009, he had recorded his first single, “Why Won’t it Rain,” at Art “Ski” Halperin’s Top of the World Studios in New York. After graduating from the University of Delaware, Weintraub and his collegiate acapella group, The Deltones, made it to the top 10 on the NBC reality show, “The Sing Off.” Jared has played to audiences in excess of 5,000 people, performed at major venues such as the Bitter End and Sullivan Hall, opened for James Maddock at New York’s historic Towne Crier Café, has been featured on over 120 radio stations nationwide, and maintains a loyal fan base that grows every day. The EP, recorded at Top of the World Studios, debuted on September 15th, with a release party at the legendary Bitter End in Manhattan (proud home of some of the earliest performances of Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, and many more). All of Jared’s music is available on iTunes and all other major digital music distributors. Read more on Last.fm.
