Nashville based singer/songwriter Jared KF Jones releases his first Christian/Gospel album, 'For Your Encouragement', in October featuring the song 'Even Jesus Cried'. Earlier this year he released the single 'How About'.
Jared's music has been featured on the Hallmark produced TV Movie, "In My Dreams", the hit BET series, "The Game", NBC's "The Voice" and "Days of Our Lives", VH-1's "Run's House", the CBS Soap Opera, "The Young and The Restless", and other major TV networks such as FOX, TLC, and Bravo.
One music industry writer said of this married, father of three, “You’re forewarned to expect a little of the unexpected from this talented singer/songwriter.” He was born in New Jersey, but grew up in the suburbs of Boston, MA. Jones is the son of a preacher/author, and high school guidance counselor. From his mid- 20s to early 30s, he was a lead singer in the Boston based band, SPLASH, performing at weddings and corporate events across New England. He was also the worship leader and drummer for his home church. Recently, he completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Capella University.
Currently living in the suburbs of Nashville, Jones is currently working on his 1st Christian/Gospel album (first of what he hopes is many). “I gave my life to Christ at 8 years old. Up until this point in my life, I’ve made music to please people and honestly, I was chasing something I thought would fulfill me. But it’s time to get focused on the message. What does God want me to share through music? It’s not about me, as I once thought. What do people need to hear?”
Another music industry executive says of Jones, "He has a commercial sensibility, great craftsmanship and consistency, and a realistic understanding of the industry. He's an up and comer that people should be looking out for. He has all the qualities necessary to be a hitmaker."
