News from Jared Lutes

Hey folks. Just another overdue update from your friendly, neighbourhood singer-songwriter! But before I dig in, I want to remind you all that my entire musical catalog is available on the major streaming services (Spotify, Apple Music) - so add me to your playlists! And of course, music sales keep me going, so ask me about that too!

once again charting at the ISC

For the third year in a row, at least one of my tunes has reached the top 10% semi-final round at the International Songwriting Competition! "Wherever You May Go" and "This Kind of Love" reached this level last year, and "I Am Overcome" actually made it to the Final 1% a couple years ago. Hopefully "Make it Up to You" will continue its climb at the competition this year. I'll let you know!

ECMA after-party

Out of the blue, I was an artist recommended to entertain at Matt Anderson's ECMA after-party, as part of that conference in Saint John this year! If you're planning on taking in the sights and sounds in the city, I'll be at the AleHouse on April 29th, 11pm. It should be a doozy!

Ontario in the summer

I had such a rewarding time last summer, I'm once again planning a solo tour to Ontario and back. I'm still reaching out to organizers, and planning my route, but I'll be visiting much of the province during the second half of August. I'm already thrilled to have bookings with the City of Oshawa, Ajax, Midland, and Bonnechere Provincial Park, with leads in Timmins and farther west. And as always, I'm open and appreciative of any recommendations in your area!
