About Jared Sagal
Los Angeles, CA
Singer-songwriter Jared Sagal has emerged from the competitive Los Angeles club circuit with a debut album bound to distinguish him from his peers. Raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Sagal split his time playing pro soccer in Germany and Sweden and singing his songs in underground stations and town squares. With an unerring ear for a pop hook and a way with a telling detail Sagal returned to the states playing the local Dallas music scene eventually getting nominated by The Dallas Observer for "Best Band." He later moved to Los Angeles where he assembled a talented group of musicians (many of whom played on Alanis Morrisette's "Jagged Little Pill") to record his album Say It. Engineered and mixed by Grammy award winner Tom Weir, fans of Howie Day,The Fray and Gavin DeGraw are sure to fall in love with Sagal's thoughtful recent release.The album's honesty and refreshing commitment to forthright expression are rare commodities in contemporary singer-songwriter music.The title track is an undeniable high point. “Say It” is directed at a playgirl – a plea from a big-hearted boyfriend tired of being on the receiving end of the booty calls. Sagal and his band build to a huge chorus with a singalong melody worthy of vintage Tom Petty. His songs are romantic, steeped in heartache, but often hopeful; in “Walking At 5AM”, the album’s ruminative track, the madness of the world falls away at the sight of his lover’s face. Other tracks are more conflicted – “The Scarf” is a poignant offering to a young woman in need, undercut by a strain of desperate insecurity. Sensitively produced by Steve Plunkett of cult-rockers Autograph, Say It supports Jared Sagal’s everyman voice with music that is rich, powerful, and occasionally even glorious. -The title track "Say It " has reached 3 on the Hot AC 40/NMW chart and 12 on the AC Hot 100 chart and is still in rotation. -The video "SAY IT " has been added to over 30 music video stations including Fuel TV, EATV, and Music Mix USA and has reached over 30 Million homes. -Sagal was featured on the Fender Records/ Rhino "Emerging Stars" CD with his song " Over Me " selected as the opening track. -Jared's music can be heard in a number of independentf films including Flash,Sweetwater and 100mpg ( by Tony Award winning director Mark Medoff ) which recently debuted at the Beverly Hills Film Festival.
