In his March interview with DJ Z, the ever-creative Jared Evan listed off a few surprising musical influences; in addition to reigning rock gods Radiohead, the Interscope/Zone 4 signee cited Led Zeppelin and The Doors as providing inspiration for his sound. Well, turns out he wasn’t blowing smoke – Evan’s latest single, In Love With You, is absolutely drenched in bluesy classic-rock grit. Over the electric guitar-driven boardwork of label boss Polow da Don, the artist lets loose with some reedy, Robert Plant-esque sung vocals – and, never one to keep his genres neatly separated, the exclusive freestyle series alumnus tops it all off with some equally impassioned rapped bars. It’s an attention-grabbing joint, to be sure, but is its eclectically raw style a good look for the buzzmaking singer/songwriter/emcee? I’ll leave that for you, the readers, to decide. Jared Evan’s debut studio album has yet to receive either a title or a release date, but the Booth will keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes!
