The tour follows the release of Jared’s latest studio album Black Magic and his UK tour with Stone Broken & The Bad Flowers in February/March 2018.

Over the past four years Jared has built up a solid reputation as a stunning heavy edged blues rock act and stage beast, having shared stages with the likes of ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zaak Wylde, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout, Blue Oyster Cult, UFO and Saxon. 

All those tours were executed within a short period of time in support of his highly acclaimed debut album “Old Glory & The Wild Revival”. Jared has quickly reached international status and has continued to deliver crashing propulsive blues tones with soulfully insane guitar solos.  It’s raw, raucous, and righteously real. 

Hi Jared, is everything OK, are you keeping alright?

Yeah, everything is great, everything is cool, just busy and all great stuff.  I am just making sure I seize every opportunity.

You have a massive tour coming up very soon with L A Guns

Yes we are going on be on the road after our local Los Angeles show and then we leave here on 29th and I will get back to Los Angeles on 26th September, so yeah we have a bunch of shows, all over the UK, all over France, Netherlands, all of Europe with L A Guns and top of that we have some headlining shows happening.  We have a headline show in Wales, Spain and also on top of that I am doing guitar clinics along the way because it seems really cool and a lot of people are into it.  I am doing guitar clinics in Guildford and Manchester.  It is cool to do these too and so we will be really busy!  It will be a fun month, although I think it will go really fast.  The busier it gets, the quicker it goes.

Yeah, absolutely, it will be gone in the blink of an eye really, if you are packing all of that into a month

I think you are right, its going to be jam packed.  I like it like that on tour because it is so much to get over to Europe, it’s a massive undertaking and so whilst we are there I am so happy that we can fill it up with stuff to do and so it feels that by the end of the tour it has been an accomplishment.

Are the guitar clinics a new thing for you?

It is starting to be so.  It is funny with me and my guitar stuff I didn’t think, I would hope but I didn’t think it would grow as fast as it has.  We have so many cool things happening with the companies I work with like Gibson and Epipone
