Jared is an award winning singer/songwriter from upstate New York and has toured the country speaking at hundreds of schools and conferences. He's shared the stage with national acts such as Jason Mraz, Gavin Degraw and even Journey! He sold over 20,000 cd’s independently and had his music featured on hit TV shows such as MTV’s “the Real World” and “Road Rules”. His main focus is allowing his music to impact the lives of his listeners by experiencing joy, finding comfort through pain, and looking past obstacles towards living a better life.
His songs are said to be uplifting, thought provoking and emotionally heartfelt. Jared mixes humor, stories of life on road and personal experience to relate to the audience set before him. Young people have walked away with life changing experiences such as finding their true passion in life, appreciating others around them and ceasing to bully those that are different, stopping their attempts at suicide and forming life lasting relationships with the friends and family surrounding them.
Jared Campbell's presentation is unlike any other assembly you will bring in to your high school, middle school or elementary school. He reaches students through the power of music with songs he's written about some of the most crucial elements to living out your life with purpose. His message focuses on overcoming obstacles, anti-bullying, respect, leadership and having an amazing outlook on life.
Students are captivated not only by the music and lyrics but also by the videos that are projected to bring the listener into the songs. Students continually walk into the show saying "I thought this was going to be just another dumb assembly" and have left the show routinely saying "In all four years of high school... this has been the best assembly ever!" - Maria 12th grade. There's plenty of humor as Jared constantly gets compared to the likes of Jack Black and you could say Jared's conducting a "School of Rock" but this school is meant to rock your life! Jared's heart is to reach the young people of today and encourage them to never stop dreaming and continue pushing forward to living out your purpose with passion!

“Once on stage, Jared found his way into the hearts and minds of our students through powerful music and thoughtful lyrics. Many of our teachers left the performance stating that it was one of the best assemblies they’d ever seen.”
Bryan Noaker – Principal, Milton High School
