SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Keyboard, Piano, Electronic Music.
Jared James grew up in a musical family, his father a rhythm guitarist and mother a pianist and singer. He was exposed to a wide range of musical styles and therefore developed a love of music not limited to one particular style. Growing up, Jared combined his piano playing skills and his love of technology, and started composing music using basic sequencing software.
In his early teens, he started with a portable version of the Commodore 64 (SX64) and progressed thought the Atari ST and then to PCâ??s. Over the years, he has honed his musical skills and created melodic pieces in a range of styles from smooth ballads to upbeat electronica.
He continues to create all the tracks in his music, layering different instruments together, but is always on the lookout for collaboration with other artists and ways to expand his arsenal of creative skills.
Currently looking for a production songwriting partner and vocalist to work together to complete his unfinished songs and ideas and produce more music together.

Everyone Inside Lyrics by Jared Sutherland, Music by Niki Hangman - Intro - Verse The city night, the lights so bright Walking like they owe it all to you A world so bad, an uphill fight But you raise your head and walk on through When will you listen To the voices calling out to you How can you move on Turn the world in to something new - Chorus Everyone inside Has a voice tells them what to do Everyone inside Have the strength just to follow through - Break - Verse A lonely man, out on the street Holding out a dirty palm to you A folding note won't skip a beat Would mean the world to just a few A scream breaks the cool air A woman cries out tonight Tears of emotion Hoping for the one who might - Chorus Everyone inside Has a voice tells them what to do Everyone inside Have the strength just to follow through Everyone inside, everyone inside Everyone inside has the right sense Everyone inside, everyone inside Everyone inside makes a difference - Bridge Turn around and breathe Touch a life, believe Hold your head up high Fix a broken sky Help a homeless guy Ask the question why - Chorus Everyone inside Has a voice tells them what to do Everyone inside Has the strength just to follow through Everyone inside Has the courage now to make a start Everyone inside Has the will to mend a broken heart - Outro
Always Missing You
Always Missing YouIn loving memory of Amele Williams, 1975 - 2017. Lyrics: Verse Gone are the sun's warm rays The cool of the night has come Times that we laughed together Hard times were fought not won A life that is gone too soon A love that you can't replace The closing of an open flower The loss of your smiling face Chorus Gone but we won't forget Times that we won't regret Now we are crying for the one who left Taken from this world so soon Hurts like an open wound Now we cry but have hope that we'll meet again Verse Missing the way you walk So soft in the way you talk Endured endless pain together Strong to the end you fought Your love is now what we keep In peace you will be asleep No matter how the time keeps passing Don't fear we will cry or weep Chorus Gone but we won't forget Times that we won't regret Now we are crying for the one who left Taken from this world so soon Hurts like an open wound Now we cry but have hope that we'll meet again Outro We will be Always missing you

Stay Close to Me - feat. 5aint (Presonus 3rd Place Winner)Presonus #GetYouHooksIn competition entry. Backing track produced by 5aint, lyrics and vocals by Jared James, small feature vocal by Yolanda Thomas. Competition info - http://www.presonus.com/community/blog/index.php/2014/03/12/get-your-hooks-in-and-win-big-really-big/ Lyrics I look around and see all eyes on you, You look so fine it's no surprise you knew, Everyone can see, You and I were meant to be. But I have to fight, So that you just might, Leave them all behind, and come with me. Bridge Girl, look at me, Would I lie to you, Give me your hand, And I'll make it true. Chorus If you want to be, With movie stars, In expensive bars, Just stay close to me. If you want to be, Driving supercars, Eating caviar, Just stay close to me. Bridge 2 (Female Vocal) These are the days And we are young Free from restraint Just have fun Come over boy And prove to me That you and l belong here Bridge Girl, look at me, Would I lie to you, Give me your hand, And I'll make it true. Chorus If you want to be With Movie stars In expensive bars Just stay close to me If you want to be Driving supercars Eating caviar Just stay close to me (Repeat) Break Can you see all that I’m offering, Why the need to cause my suffering. You hold the cards, Right close to your chest, And now all the guys around, Just want to be best, They all fight for the right, To be spending all night, With the girl of their dreams, And their angel of light. Chorus If you want to be With Movie stars In expensive bars Just stay close to me If you want to be Driving supercars Eating caviar Just stay close to me (Repeat x 1) If you want to see, Music superstars, With their gold guitars, Just stay close to me. If you want to see, Something so bizarre, Like you've gone to mars, Just stay close to me.
