Jared Halley, a 30-year-old Columbus, Ohio, native is a freelance musician and composer for film, TV, games, and multimedia. He is best known for the content that he creates on YouTube.
He expresses his love for people through his music. He has commented, “I find the best topic to write about — and one of the best others can relate to — is love. Whether it’s being in love, or fatherly or motherly love or even eternal love.” He sings and plays the piano and Fender guitar. His genres range from Country to Classical Pop.
Jared attended Ohio State University from 2008 to 2012 receiving a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in communication (general) with a minor in music. His love for music began at an early age singing with his family. He said, “Basically everyone in my family sings. We still get together to jam songs by John Mayer, Rascal Flatts, and Josh Groban … and my songs, too.” He first realized the power of music to move people when he saw the popular Broadway musical The Phantom of the Opera as a young boy. He recalls that he felt like crying and that the music “touched [his] spirit and [spoke] to his soul.
Jared is a solo artist who makes all his music with his voice and mouth. He learns and performs each individual singing part, then adds percussion elements (beatbox, stomps, claps, etc.) and mixes it all together to form an a cappella masterpiece.
He joined YouTube on 19 March 2013, and as of early March 2017, he has garnered over 11,000 subscribers and his videos have been viewed more than 770,000 times. In 2017, he plans to collaborate with several YouTube musicians and creators to expanded his loyal fan base. You can also help Jared make more videos by supporting him on Patreon.
