This Weeks #VegasArtistSpotlight: Jared & The Mill

Howdy, We are Jared & The Mill. All of us were born and raised in Phoenix,
Arizona, and we still call it home today. When we first got started in the summer
of 2011 we just wanted to play some music with our best buds, play a few shows,
and have a good time. Jared and Michael had been buddies and playing music
together since they were kids, and after they met up with another childhood duo
Josh Morin and Larry Gast III, and connected with Chuck Morris III and Gabe
Hall Rodriguez through mutual friends, the band was born. As things go we were
soon hammering along in the local scene, playing alongside the bands of new
friends and old throughout Arizona.
The wheels kept turning, and before we knew it we had over three years of touring
under our boots; playing in the living rooms, dive bars, venues, theaters, music
festivals, and even arenas of this big ol’country of ours alongside fellow upcoming
bands, and with some of the biggest acts we had always looked up to. Playing for
fifty people one night in a smokey bar, and the very next night opening up and
playing for eighteen thousand in an arena was inspiring, humbling, and eye
opening to say the least. Opening up and sharing stages with the likes of Zac
Brown Band, Barry Gibb, Boy & Bear, War on Drugs, The Wildfeathers, Cake,
Flogging Molly, The Killers, Allen Stone, and others, while touring alongside
growing bands just getting their start like us was a real honor. We certainly gained
invaluable experience from all those shows and all those trials. Being out there
changed our lives, it changed how we thought about things, and it changed how
we wrote about things. Life gives to you and it takes from you, and we have
written about that give, and that take. We’ve written about getting older, about
those friends those loved ones, those things that never leave you, and we’ve
written about those people and those things that do; the sweet and the bitter, and
that struggle to keep the course as you try your best to carve yourself into what
you hope is a good person. We have written about our desert home we so very
often miss, and we’ve written about the stories of others we’ve heard along the
way. Our music has been called, compared and regarded by a number of different
names and genres, and we’ve been influenced and shaped by many different events
and people, but more than anything, we’d like to think that some shred of the
Southwest – of our home – can be found in the heart of our music.
