Columbus, Ohio independent singer/songwriter Jared Mahone was just named Best Male Artist in the 11th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA). Mahone’s original song, “From: Joe To: Betsy” was submitted for the competition and won him the recognition, topping entries from more than six different countries along with an entry featuring Michael Buble. Pop artist Meghan Trainor is also a past IAMA recipient.
I grew up in a family that had a band, had a bus and toured the country. It was normal to sit and write songs and play instruments.”
Jared and his garage soul 6-piece band will perform tonight at the Rathskeller Grand Ballroom from 9pm to midnight. $5 cover and this show is for all ages.
