Jared Evan‘s latest project, Pieces, finds the multitalented Brooklynite reflecting on the course of his career to date—from his obscure beginnings, to his stint as a major-label signee, to his current independent status. While his journey’s been anything but a smooth ride to the top, Evan has myriad reasons to be Proud when he reflects on his accomplishments. On a new single, he summarizes his trajectory in a few poignant lines: “Growin up I remember when I used to be alone in the world I was livin’ in. / Now I’m on the road, a different city every day, and the whole world’s listening.” Frequent collaborator !llmind provides a pensive, piano-led backdrop for his verses, and another loyal colleague, Rik Cordero, directs the accompanying visuals. In addition to being available for free streaming/download in the Booth, Jared Evan’s Pieces EP can now be purchased via iTunes.
