World traveler and singer-songwriter Jarid Rother has previously call Portland, Oregon his home, but is currently based in Madrid. His inviting style of music incorporates elements of indie guitar pop, emotional, organic folk, and lo-fi rock. Every new release is meant as a meaningful step forward for an artist that is discovering his sound in real-time, while capturing an authentic experience with the universal sonic palette of acoustic guitar, a driving beat, and touches of cinematic, discordant strings.
"Bite" is his latest release, written for those moments when it feels like the world is ending—and all you can do is appreciate the moments of peace wherever they are found. With an enigmatic mix of melancholy and boundless hope, Jared merges the sardonic essence of Elliott Smith against the eclectic, carefree feels of a band like Hippo Campus. "Bite" delivers an endearing sense of pause as we explore the gratifying sense of connection with another person that is so often a rare and precious salvation when life spins out of control.
