Jared Mees and Finn Riggins Split - S/T


  • The members of Finn Riggins met Jared Mees on New Year's Eve 2007 during a raucous house show in Jared's hometown of Pagosa Springs, CO. They fell in love with one another’s music and passion for life. By the summer of 2007 Mees and the Finn Riggins were tour buddies, endeavoring on the sweltering "No AC Tour" through the American west wherein FR served as JM's band - The JimSox. In the fall of the same year, Mees' fledgling label Tender Loving Empire released Finn Riggins first full length "A Soldier, A Saint, An Ocean Explorer" produced by Jared. 8 years and a whole lot of music, tours and kids later Jared Mees and Finn Riggins are still best of buds. The single is printed on 7 inch colored wax.

It's only fitting they should share space on one delicious 7" record.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Constant lineup changes and infrequent rehearsals would cause many bands to suffer, but they’ve become the lifeblood of Jared Mees &amp; 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 &amp; The Grown Children have come to be known for.</p>
