Jared LutesJared Lutes and his band to perform at car show

UPDATE: Due to the weather conditions of Hurricane Arthur, Thunder on the River events have been cancelled.

With the 2012 release of his full-length solo record ‘When We Grow Younger’, Jared Lutes has finally emerged as a full-time artist who has found his musical center.

A veteran of both stage and studio, Lutes has enjoyed consistent airplay on CBC Radio, earned live performances on local TV, appeared at many festival showcases, and has sold thousands of CDs from the stage. Far from being a weekend-warrior musician, Lutes puts full-time attention into recording, performing, and behind-the-scenes promotion.

Born and raised in Moncton, NB, and learning the ropes in the local live circuit, Jared Lutes performs his marathon sets with an infectious enthusiasm for the music. This coupled with a penchant for songwriting and full-time ambition means that this Power-Pop troubadour and Master of Arts graduate is prepped to take on the world. Taking a cue from such alt-country folk-rockers as Blue Rodeo, Wilco, Bob Seger, The Tragically Hip, Bruce Springsteen, and The Band, Jared Lutes blends classic roots-rock rawness with modern adult-contemporary sophistication.

Now after ten years, 1,000 gigs, and several band CD’s later, Jared Lutes has emerged as an experienced and driven solo artist. His first solo offering, ‘Waiting on You’, has been often featured on CBC Radio, earned him a live performance on ATV’s ‘Breakfast Television’, a ‘Discovery’ showcase at the East Coast Music Awards, as well as opening for Quebec’s ‘Les Respectables’.

Catch Jared performing live at Thunder on the River, Friday night, July 4 from 8pm to 10pm, Saturday from 9pm to 12am and Sunday 1pm to 3pm!
