    Tender Loving Empire co-founder Jared Mees' second album Caffeine, Alcohol, Sunshine, Money is a meandering aural journey through multiple genres, time periods and perspectives. From the sci-fi themed orchestral epic "Trampling Daisies" to hoedown barn burner "In The Fall" to feel good pop gem "The Tallest Building in Hell", Jared Mees & The Grown Children deliver a diverse yet cohesive group of lyric-heavy power folk jams.

  • Jared Mees & The Grown Children Jared Mees and the Grown Children Constant lineup changes and infrequent rehearsals would cause many bands to suffer, but they’ve become the lifeblood of Jared Mees & The Grown Children, giving the group’s live shows a devil-may-care energy and keeping the songs honest and raw. The band’s first incarnation was born on a Panamanian Island, where Mees, his wife Brianne—the co-founders of Tender Loving Empire—and two friends wrote the bulk of the songs that would eventually become If You Wanna Swim With The Sharks. After recording Sharks in L.A. with Brianne’s father, Bill Forbes, the couple moved to Portland, Oregon, and launched the fledgling Tender Loving Empire empire. Many more Grown Children incarnations would follow, each contributing to the full of the sprawling epic soundscapes and lucid lyrical imagery that Jared Mees & The Grown Children have come to be known for.
