Touring for their full length record “This Story Is No Longer Available” album Jared & the Mill spoke to The Prelude Press and said the following of the album:
"It's a textured mosaic of seemingly unrelated stories and songs, but upon zooming out and looking at it as a whole I hope the listeners see a little bit of themselves in the collage," frontman Jared Kolesar shares on the album. "There are soft introspective tunes about spirituality, big sounding tunes with broad statements about love, and everything in between.”
He continues, "I think the overall idea is that everybody is at least a little broken, we all have regrets and anxieties, and all anybody really wants in this world is to find the parts of themselves that they like and care about. This record is that idea, and we hope with everything in us that it's received as such, but we also hope the listener enjoys themselves and finds their feet moving a little bit, because you gotta learn to dance through the chaos."
Jared & the Mill bio:
We’re 5 best friends from AZ. We love the desert, we love our city, its people, and we love each other. We love long drives, early mornings, late nights, dive bars, carne asada Tacos at 3 am, dirty jokes, and asking each other what we think about things. We’re just as likely to get down on Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan as we are Van Halen, and Kendrick Lamar. We love dogs, we love our van, we love playing together, and we love you – it’s true. For the past few years, we’ve pretty much always been on tour, hitting the road on our own, with fellow bands, and have been lucky enough to open for a few heroes. From living rooms and basement clubs, to theaters and arenas, we just love playing shows, and being on the road.
Our fans are our greatest priority – we love them, we really do, and we do our best to insure them that we can’t do this without them. Our message is one of acceptance, not in a circle sitting kum-baya bullshit way, but in a way of acknowledging that we all have shit we regret, we all have passions and opinions, and it’s up to all of us to filter through our flaws and our regrets to find ourselves and love one another. Don’t judge other people, and care about everybody, like EVERYBODY everybody. Our shows are rowdy, you’ll break down your walls and realize you’re not in this alone. We hope you come to a show, make our songs apart of your story, and live the best fucking life you can.

Blackwater Railroad Company Bio:
Like good moonshine, Blackwater Railroad Company was formed in the small town of Seward, Alaska in 2012, and consistently delivers warm, cheery evenings. The band adds new original music with every passing show, mainly culled from the prolific songwriting capacities of its frontman, Tyson Davis. The music can be defined in many ways, but the overarching themes include folk, bluegrass, rhythm and blues and country songwriters from the late 60s and 70s. Regardless of the genre, BWRR specializes in upbeat, unique covers and catchy, danceable originals that never fail to get the crowd dancing and smiling.
