Fighting to Be Me
Born in Brooklyn NY, Jared Matthew Kessler grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey, living a very unique story between doing what is impossible and doing what is necessary. Raised with middle income values, his passions always faced the opposite direction by communicating through the written word and his music. Originally wanting to go to art-college, his dad was more concerned with having him earn a living like everyone else in the family. Having grown up in the early 80's when divorce wasn't too popular and musicians were a figment of the imagination, Jared escaped to college 6 hours away from any distractions between who he is and what his parents tried to sell him. A highly creative and intelligent individual, Jared Matthew Kessler constantly raises the bar as a writer, musician and entrepreneur. Receiving national press recognition for some of the accomplishments he made happen (with appearances on CBS playing a musician in, 'The Education of Max Bickford' as well as the hit series, 'Providence' on NBC and various commercials/music videos for Joseph Arthur and Anastacia). Jared's music, literature and expanding product line are both raw and spontaneous with thoughtful details and attention to building a memorable tale. Kessler's current work reflects a colorful song and eclectic taste of what he observes through a filter of personal experiences between a cup of green tea, a beat up journal, a laptop, a guitar, a keyboard and a microphone (longest green tea sipping time: 5 hours 4 minutes and 27 seconds).
