[ BIO ]
Within today’s musical diaspora, an exceptional talent is a rare find. Emerging from the suburban town of Maplewood NJ, Jared Hines is a true singer/songwriter/musician practicing pure musicianship. Having an avid record collector and DJ for a father, as a youth Jared was surrounded by a consistent mix of eclectic and obscure music from every genre imaginable.
At 14, they received their first bass guitar from a friend. Solely concentrating on the bass, Jared started making music, practicing little riffs and chords, staying up until dawn until they mastered the instrument. From there, they quickly acquired the skill for playing the guitar, drums and keyboards. While attending Hofstra University, Jared became interested in songwriting and becoming proficient utilizing music software.
Currently stepping out on a solo journey, Jared is about to set the electronic dance music world off its heels. Combining early 80’s electro funk and the synth-pop/punk sounds of the era with their own music sensibilities, Jared is creating some of the most refreshingly eclectic, modern electronic dance music.
Deep House renegade, DJ/Producer, Ron Trent released Jared’s first EP produced under the pseudonym, A Band Called Flash on his Future Vision label. Asked to create something akin to the UK jazz funk outfit Atmosfear, Jared's end result was five forthright dance floor-grabbing tracks, the Mother Confessor EP.
Jared Hines continues to expand the Future Funk sound with the release of their second EP Phantom, on their own record label, J4J Records. The Phantom EP presents five tantalizing tracks that will keep you groovin' from start to finish. This release also showcases Jared's vocal skills alongside their incredible musicianship. Following up on the success of the Mother Confessor EP, Phantom shows that this artist has a lot more music to share with the world.
