Pop Singer-Songwriter Jared Salvatore Announces Release Of Sophomore Album Compass Out On January 15, 2013
"Helplessly Wasted," the first single from Compass Out has essences of Jason Mraz and Robin Thicke, a combination of pop/rock, fueled by Salvatore's expressive vocals and driven with a tight groove beneath layered background vocals. Stand-out track "Learned My Lesson" is reminiscent of the funkier side of John Mayer or Gavin Degraw and was included on the recent compilation Grooving Forward: Volume 1. All proceeds from the compilation will be donated to The SAMFund for Young Adult survivors of Cancer and The Andrea Coller Memorial Award.
Like many natural troubadours, Salvatore doesn't remember a time without music. By the age of 18, he realized it was his calling and began studying guitar and voice, in addition to piano which he'd played since the age of 5. Within two years, he found himself attending Berklee College of Music and playing in various Boston-based bands, as varied as progressive rock band The Zero Four, funk/jazz ensemble Flatbush Park Leisure Group, and hard rock band Lansdowne.
