Jared Evan Has No Regrets of Leaving Interscope

Growing Up

I was born in Great Neck, New York. It’s a small town right outside of New York City. I never really liked school. I’m just an artist-kid that never cared about that stuff.

My parents had a rough time raising me, and I didn’t care about school or homework, and I didn’t behave properly like all the other kids. I just cared about music. They could tell that I had an interest in music, and they supported that and were happy but my academics had always struggled.

I showed an interest in playing drums and that was one thing I did that my parents supported. They always thought that was the thing for me.

I don’t play sports; I ski a little bit. [Laughs.] To be honest, music is what it is. That’s me all day. I never really had any other hobby. Early on, my hobbies were playing the drums and as I grew older, it evolved into songwriting, producing, singing, and rapping.
