Born in East Troy, Wisconsin and raised near Waukesha (hometown of Les Paul), JARED was influenced by the classic playing of Son House, Freddy King, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton. As a teen JARED worked at a resort and would sneak onstage in off hours and mimic the licks and moves of his hero, Stevie Ray Vaughn. Honing his craft and performing since the age of 13, he began attending local Milwaukee and Chicago blues jams, learning from legends who took him under his wing and shared the stage with the young rocker. Having played well over 500+ gigs by the time he was 21, JARED had settled into his sound – what he describes as “Blues Soul Power” – melting faces with his intricate guitar solos and causing crowds to swoon with his to-the-point lyrics and rugged vocals. In addition to playing some of the top clubs and festivals across America, JARED has opened and shared the stage with the likes of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Derek Trucks and Honey Boy Edwards, to name a few. At 20 years old he moved to Hollywood and met up with Swedish musicians Dennis Holm (drums) & Eric Sandin (bass) forming a electrifying Power Trio. Taking pieces of traditional delta blues, 70’s classic rock and a dash of modern indie garage makes up the sounds of JARED’s Flying V propelled songs. JARED won the 2010 Jerry Horton guitar contest, 2011 Les Paul Tribute Contest, as well as Musicians Institute’s 2011 “Outstanding Guitarist Award”.  JARED’s first recording entitled Live at the Viper Room EP was released in June 2012 and has been well received among music and guitar aficionados around the world garnering features in both Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines. After gaining steam with the EP and his performances around LA, JARED was invited to play onstage with rock superstars Joey Belladonna, Alex Skolnick, Marco Mendoza and Glen Sobel during D’Addario’s Artist Appreciation Party at the 2012-2013 Winter NAMM Show.  After having a very successful southwestern tour this past March, with excellent showings throughout SXSW, JARED signed with Sony/MTV’s Hype Music Publishing.  In addition, JARED has been causing a buzz with such noteworthy musicians and industry heavyweights as Steven Tyler, Joe Bonamassa, producers Eddie Kramer, Jack Douglas and Warren Huart. Expect big things from JARED JAMES NICHOLS to come.
