Evan and Jaron, the handsome identical twin brothers who had a knack for musical hits, have recorded six albums since 1994. They’re best known for their breakout album Evan and Jaron, which produced three Top 40 hits: “Crazy for This Girl” (U.S. Hot 100 #3, Mainstream Top 40 #1), “From My Head to My Heart” (U.S. Mainstream Top 40 #28 and film soundtrack Runaway Bride), and “The Distance” (U.S. Mainstream Top 40 #29 and film soundtrack Serendipity).
Why mention this blast from the past? Because Jaron Lowenstein is now the present. He currently is finishing a national set of shows playing solo spots all over. After going out west alone but living in Nashville to “get away,” Jaron was able to meet up with a country duo named Halfway to Hazard whose self-titled debut album Halfway to Hazard reached #14 on the Billboard country charts.
Early reviews thus far for Jaron, who has played from Los Angeles to the Deep South to the Midwest, have been classified as “a shot of musical virtuosity tangled up with wickedly sly humor and raucous fun.”
During these recent live performances Jaron has shown a knack for self-deprecating humor and a ginsu sharp wit during interactions with the crowd. However, the most noticeable part of the shows is Jaron’s virtuosity on piano and guitar while synchronizing it with a vocal and lyrical acuity that is the truest diamond behind this attractive rough.
Jaron’s live shows offer the kind of “something” that begs the question, what’s next? When asked what the future holds since the chart-topping days he told me, “I am working on a new project, but nothing tangible and so nothing really to discuss on that front [chuckle], so come and find out what’s going on.”
Future dates TBD.
