In The Field : Jared Mahone : 12/17 “Wrap Up”

“Wrap Up”

Well, this fall tour came to an end on December 1st and I thought it would be fitting to at least wrap things up for now as I can’t see how continuing entries to a journal called “In The Field” would make much sense from home. I covered 15 states on either side of my hometown in Columbus, Ohio, playing over 40 different concerts as a solo acoustic performer and as the front man for my garage soul band. This tour was accomplished all as an unsigned, self-made, independent, original songwriter. I performed in some of the smallest American towns as well as appeared on national TV for the first time ever. This was not my first tour, and it will definitely not be my last. I have a ton of work to do in my time off the road including some recording projects, moving my project studio to a new location, shooting and self-producing my first music video, planning the next big tour, and loving my family whom I haven’t seen in a long while. I’m excited for what’s to come, and, if Fieldhouse is cool with it, I will pick up with these road stories when the road becomes life once again after the holidays.

Touring allows me to meet a lot of people and get to know them not much deeper than surface level. This forces my eyes to be a constant observer of the social environment and subsequently forces my brain, in a very natural way, to create categories in which people seem to fit. Pointing out these categories is as old as time and yet, somehow, still fascinating. With the many special people I have had the privilege of meeting while traveling around the country, I hope I have done their humanity justice and avoided the pitfall of over generalizing as much as possible. Although, as a writer, I will continue to see human beings as archetypes, stereotypes, and characters, as well as shed light on the many unique exceptions to these rules. After all, I am also only human.

Please consider supporting what I do as a touring artist, writer, storyteller, and American journeyman. You can purchase and own any of my albums digitally on iTunes, Amazon or other digital distribution outlets. We have released a brand new, self-produced single for the holiday called Come December, that captures one of the many feelings of working hard while looking forward to a much needed holiday break. You can also support me on the road by following my tour dates to a venue close to you and coming out to see a concert in person. Hope to see someone, somewhere, sometime. Jared Mahone

Come December
