Memphis-based rock trio Ingram Hill would probably love to have it look as if their latest album, "Look Your Best," was as easy-breezy to create as the lyrics suggest, but lead singer/guitarist Justin Moore says it was made with a great deal of hard work, determination, and grit. "I think it felt like we were in a place in our career where we really were going through a stressful time," says Moore of the period after parting ways with their former major label home, Hollywood Records. "We were trying to get our stuff together, and we spent a lot of time and effort trying to make this as great as possible. It's not like we haven't done that with all of our records, but this one felt like there was a lot more weight on it, on the process of making it. We gave it everything we had. It seemed like an appropriate title. We were putting on our best for our audience, for our fans."

Jared McCloud
Jared McCloud
Jared McCloud's natural, earthy tone and thought provoking lyrics showcase his talent and ability to draw his audiences into his story. Starting his musical career in "Hard Rock/Metal" bands, Jared decided to go solo, and released a self produced record while playing all over his native Connecticut to promote it. Honing his skill in small venues and coffee houses alike, Jared grew his fan base and wowed large music halls with his live performances.

A mix of influences from Tom Waits to Chris Whitley, Springsteen to Motown, crowds started to take notice of McCloud's unique brand of songwriting. Picked up by Sling Slang Records in 2008, McCloud recorded a new record in a different direction than his hard rock past. "Romance Of The Atlantic" was released in May of 2009 and was immediately embraced by critics and fans alike. McCloud began actively touring all over, from the Northeast to the Midwest, as well as performing on radio and television, and shared stages with national acts like Candlebox, Vertical Horizon, Griffin House, and Civil Twilight, His "Indie Label debut" found success on college and nation radio, as well as gained attention from national critics and secured him endorsement deals with Alvarez guitars (McCloud's favorite acoustic) and Steve Clayton pics.

With this arsenal of heartfelt, passionate songs, his "anytime-anywhere" gigging attitude, and a new record, recorded with Jason Rubal (Dresden Dolls) of Seventh Wave Studios and released in early 2011, expect to hear a lot more from Jared McCloud.
