Jared & The Mill
Jared & The Mill
Jared & The Mill is a southwestern indie rock band, formed in 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona. A collection of 5 childhood friends who met up in college, Jared & The Mill has spent the past few years touring extensively through the dive bars, venues, theaters, music festivals, and even arenas of the U.S. and Canada, playing alongside burgeoning bands and established acts, and developing a strong and rooted fan base along the way. The band has multiple and successful independent releases, the most recent 2016 release, Orme Dugas was produced by Ryan Hewitt and recorded in Nashville, Tennessee hitting #46 overall iTunes and #9 Billboard Heatseeker Mountain Region.
“Orme Dugas blurs lines to the point where the ambiguity becomes an asset unto itself, a record that sounds exactly like Jared & The Mill to the returning listener but a little more gray to a newcomer. It’s not rock, it’s not country, it’s not folk, but it’s not quite pop. So where do they fit? They’ve opened for the Zac Brown Band, the War on Drugs, Allen Stone, and the Killers, to name a few, and while it’s an impressive list, it’s a still a grab bag. Their undefinable nature is also their strongest weapon. It’s why soccer moms, hipsters, rednecks, white-collar workers, critics, families, and virtually anyone who’s cool or uncool can be a fan in equal measure.” - K.C. Libman Phoenix New Times
As Jared & The Mill has stated, “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.” It’s a blend of cultures that gives the southwest it’s identity, and it certainly does the same for Jared & The Mill. In their words, “From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening.”

Champagne Sunday
Powerful, honest, edgy, and refreshingly original, Champagne Sunday attacks the stage with a show that is heartfelt, engaging, and performed with a desperate enthusiasm and chemistry seldom seen in today’s bands. Champagne Sunday transcends genre enough to create their own, coalescing the multi-genre tastes of today’s fickle audiences into a catalog that defies traditional definition.

Their 2006 release "Make It Mine" garnered some radio play from local and college stations and won the group three MAVRIC awards (including Best Rock Song and Best Overall Song of 2007) out of five nominations. The band toured nationally twice in 2007 in support of the album and expanded their fan base to New York and Seattle.

With the release of their follow-up album "North" in 2008, the band won three more MAVRIC awards and landed an endorsement deal with Dean Markley. From Sept. ‘09 to Feb. ’10, after recording their five-song EP “Random Acts of Blindness”, the band toured relentlessly in the Pacific Northwest and California, promoting their music and perfecting their live show.

2012 brought about a lot of changes for Champagne Sunday. Having played more often as a duo, Jessi and Jared decided to make their fourth album "Heaven Knows" on their own. With the brief addition of Evan Rohar on trumpet, the duo recorded and mixed the entire thing in their living room on Garageband. The tour that followed led them back up to the Pacific Northwest, where the two-piece show was met with such enthusiasm from crowds that the band decided to relocate there permanently.
