Jared Mees’ fourth album employs many of the poet’s traditional tools: metaphor and simile, alliteration and euphony, rhyme and aphorism, variation in voice and point of view. But these are only devices by which Jared the Poet treats his diverse subject matters: Loss of faith, love, legacy, suicide, to name a few contained in Life is Long. Jared wrote all the songs and recorded them in a small cabin along Oregon’s mighty Santiam river. While supplying the vocals and compositions, Jared had members of Typhoon, Radiation City, The Domestics, New Move and Yeah Great Fine play the music. For many days, they all went about the cabin in pajamas and bathrobes, eating sandwiches and ingesting cannabis. After many days of this they came to call themselves The Comfy Boyz.
LP and CD purchases include full digital download.
