Record Label: None
Jaron Micah: Thank you so much for those kind words! Well I have played piano since the age of five, but I picked up guitar and started singing around 11 years old.
Jaron: Yes, so as I picked up the guitar my creative side started to blossom and I was writing songs by the age of 13. That next year going into high school I started learning about the world of production with my laptop and a cheap studio setup. Through my high school years I grew a passion for arranging music, recording, mixing and mastering it - the whole process of music production! Thank you, yes I believe I definitely found a lot about my artistic style in the making of this EP as every sound was produced in my bedroom studio.
Jaron: Yes, my brother is always an inspiration for my music and often the purpose for which I draw from the heart to write songs. I wrote the last song "Clarity" in the last week of my scheduled recording... I had this prayerful idea one night that in this time of incredible uncertainty we needed 'clarity.' Well that next morning I woke up with the chorus hook and a few lyrics in my head. I grabbed my guitar, found the key and chords, and began to write the main chorus and fill out the song with some verses. I truly believe God gave me this song, most certainly He gave me the spark to create the chorus, which turns into an anthem later in the song with a choir singing it aloud together!
Jaron: I have a ton of musical influences which have impacted my path as a musician and music-lover growing up. The Christian music influences of mine that are most relevant to my EP include Steven Curtis Chapman and Pat Barrett. In terms of secular music, I love Bon Iver, John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Ben Howard, and many other artists with folk / indie flavors.
Jaron: Most definitely - amidst the many challenges this season has brought, one of the biggest blessings was it gave me the time and opportunity to stick my head down and creatively work releasing an EP in essentially two months. Now, it was a lot of hard work and I stayed very busy because I did everything for the project even beyond the music as I published and released it (also created a website to put EP content on - jaronmicahmusic.com).
Jaron: Yes, I do. I don't know exactly what the future holds in terms of a specific job in the industry, but my dream is to make money and support myself doing music professionally. My vision is to produce music cutting records for artists being a part of the music creation process. My college plans include going to a college with a commercial music major to give me experience and knowledge of the music business, while improving my musicianship. My dream university as of now is Belmont in Nashville, Tennessee!
Jaron: Great question!... Throughout the journey of creating "Hold Fast", the predominant theme of hope became more and more clear to me through my writing of songs like "Clarity" and the situation in which I was releasing the EP. My hope was for God to use it to encourage people and point people to him during this pandemic of Covid-19. I hope this to be especially true in my surrounding community of Ventura County as my music has been shared in local newspapers as well as on my local country radio station.
