The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical and creative influence. As the rebel in a family full of professionals, it was evident thatJARROD marched to the beat of his own drum from the time he took his first steps. His family encouraged his wild child nature and individuality. Even while tucked away at North Carolina A&T, JARROD knew that music was his true calling. After performing in local shows, his buzz began to grow and JARROD decided to totally devote himself to his music.

JARROD is keen on pointing out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. He counts N.E.R.D., Kid Rock, David Bowie, Bob Marley, Destiny's Child and Lil' Jon as some of his biggest influences. The songs on his first album, Confessions of a Parti Animal, are a combination of electrifying guitar playing and rhythmic vocals. It's a non-stop party anthem punctuated throughout with elements of reggae, hip-hop, punk, rock, pop and Soul.  

JARROD has opened for Wale, The Clipse, and the Grammy Winning R&B group, Boyz II Men. He has been featured on multiple albums and recorded the team roster song for the WNBA Atlanta Dream (2005-2007).

His schedule is increasing relentlessly, and he is finding himself more in demand than ever in venues and festivals across the country. Music lovers everywhere are building an appreciation for his sound and talent, and he is steadily growing a loyal army of fans wherever he goes.

JARROD will release his anticipated follow-up CD, ROADTRIP this year. With the album expected to be a success and fame imminent, the exciting, innovative sound that he has made his own is certain to propel him to a mainstream audience. JARROD really does ROCK.
