Jaron And The Long Road To Love
Jaron And The Long Road To Love
"It", made its way from the tiny websites, social networks, instant messages to word of mouth. "It", became that little train, the “girl not hot and cool enough for him”. “It” was not a record label or TV station with their videos, this was a mandate by the people - they wanted change this year all right, but little did anyone suspect it would be a guy named Jaron. People started telling people, they started not asking, but demanding radio play the song and with a few coins spent, a ton of hard work and a fanbase that is more like a friendbase his hit "Pray for You" is one of the hottest songs of 2010.
"Pray for You" is honest, humorous and something most people can relate to either in their lives now, from the past or yet to be. "Pray for You" is simply a take on 'being in the moment' as instead of calling his ex-500 times or writing twenty sappy letters, emails and sending flowers, he goes to Church. The pastor says pray for her, pray for anyone who does you wrong, just pray for them. So what does he do? His heart is an oversized jigsaw puzzle that is so not getting put together, all he does is just what the Pastor says, he prays.
You know the rest. The song is merely an honest emotion, one that has resonated from Bluefield, WV to Tacoma, WA and everywhere in between. We have all felt at one time or another after being hurt, a word that doesn’t do the pain justice, by someone we cared often forever and a day. It can even be a company or whatever that has done us wrong. The song is meant to show how we feel in the moment and move on to bigger, better and brighter things with no real harm coming to person who harmed us.
We let John Lennon's words about "instant karma is gonna get you..." do the work and we heal ourselves. All of Jaron's songs revolve around a man who is part Clark Kent, a middle management, hard working, but barely noticed guy. The guy who is just doing his job, going home and fixing dinner for one. He is the guy or woman that goes through life hoping someone will notice. Then there is also the brazen, bold, sarcastic, witty Superman version of Jaron that has all the confidence to go with the fast cars and faster women. Every day there is a daytime and there is a nighttime, every day.
Jaron’s lyrics and songs ebb and flow, because love is just that way, like Clark and Superman a journey that has the highest highs that you trust you can fly and the lows so deep you feel like there truly is “nothing left to lose” and during those rainy, cold, solitary mornings you chuckle about whether it would be less painful to get hit by the subway than to ride it to work. Jaron and his new album “Getting Dressed in The Dark” is his journey, an honest account of real love, loss, redemption, hope and all the emotions in between because Jaron is just another guy looking for someone to faithfully return the sentiment. This is his journey, one that relies on interaction with people and finally being honest with himself in a way a novelist would. Who is the girl that caused this inspiration? Jaron, like a great fiction writer telling his story, there is always a thinly veiled disguise that blurs the lines between the whole story and slippery imaginations.
With “Pray for You” and this new album “Getting Dressed In The Dark” Jaron is doing the exact same thing as Hemingway would only using a piano, a guitar and words so real you sometimes feel like they are your own. If you enjoy “Pray for You”, I mean really love it, you will certainly like this new album and the bonus track for early buyers. Also if this is your first taste of Jaron’s music and enjoy this debut solo album and think of it like that first sip of a bled red leaf meant to add something to your wine, this album means to add something to you. It will play like a diary, opened and strung together in a way where you can love something madly and madly is what you get.
Enjoy the ride because we are ALL Superman/Superwoman and Clark Kent in our lives at different times so buckle up and don’t watch – listen. This album is a gift that breaks the mold, gets over the “genre” typecast that pretty soon technology will put us in a “genre”. This album wasn’t made to conform, it was made to be sincere, to be for you. Thank you and If you can handle the dichotomy that is Jaron, along with his snappy wit and band of merry friends, suit up, become a long roader and come meet the man on Facebook daily, as it is really him day after day working his donkey kong off!
