jaredjames, full name Jared James Sutherland, grew up in a musical family, his father a rhythm guitarist and mother a pianist and singer. He was exposed to a wide range of musical styles and therefore developed a love of music not limited to one particular style. Growing up, Jared combined his piano playing skills and his love of technology, and started composing music using basic sequencing software.
In his early teens, he started with a portable version of the Commodore 64 (SX64) and progressed thought the Atari ST and then to PC’s. Over the years, he has honed his musical skills and created melodic pieces in a range of styles from smooth ballads to upbeat electronica.
He continues to create all the tracks in his music, layering different instruments together, but is always on the lookout for collaboration with other artists and ways to expand his arsenal of creative skills.
