Meet Jared Gelman, Pop Singer-Songwriter on the Rise, with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

Jared Gelman has recently released his emotional new single “Never Know What It’s Like” so we recently caught up with the talented rising singer-songwriter to learn more about him!

Growing up right outside of New York City, the 24-year-old noticed others’ reactions to his unconventional style from an early age—his unique appearance and at times, eccentric ensembles, were not always accepted nor understood. It was through music, however, that he finally found an outlet to express himself.

Check out the music video for “Never Know What It’s Like” and check out his 10 Fun Facts below:

  • 1. I moved to LA over a year ago. Growing up outside of NYC, I never thought I’d leave and head west!
  • 2. My background in performing is actually from being a dancer. I went to a performing arts summer camp and trained in Hip Hop.
  • 3. In 8th grade, I called the police because I thought I heard someone breaking into my house to kidnap me. The noise I heard ended up being a loud dishwasher (watching so much crime TV makes me paranoid??)
  • 4. I’ve been writing songs for almost ten years (and Lordt knows I’m grateful for my gradual improvement since back in the day!!)
  • 5. In high school, I wore veils every Wednesday and tried to make “Veil Vednesdays” a thing… it never really took off.

  • 6. I unapologetically know all of the Pussycat Dolls’ choreography.
  • 7. I have a twin sister named Shira who’s pretty amazing.
  • 8. Three summers ago, I interned for the band Linkin Park (yes, my flamboyant self worked for a badass band).
  • 9. I went to college in Philadelphia and graduated with a “Music Industry” degree… whatever that means.
  • 10. When I was in sixth grade, I got pulled onstage at a Black Eyed Peas concert. It was that night, when I looked out into the crowd of thousands of people, that I knew I wanted to spend my life performing pop music.

Never Know What It’s Like” is also available on Spotify and iTunes now!
