Jared Colby is a producer, engineer/mix engineer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and arranger - as well as a touring member of Alanna Royale, Mount Worcester, and Second Spirit. He has been making records since 2004 between Nashville, New York, California, and Boston, ranging in genres from Soul, to Rock, to Hardcore, to Hip-Hop.
Jared Colby grew up in Worcester, Massachusetts and from a very early age, fell in love with making records. He got his first electric bass and Tascam 414 Portastudio at the age of 12, immediately formed a band and also started recording and mixing other hardcore bands from the Worcester area at his home studio, Trapdoor Studios. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts from 2004-2008, where he furthered his study of the electric bass, focusing on Latin and Soul techniques. During that time, he also worked at New Alliance Audio in Cambridge, MA, Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY, while continuing to work at Trapdoor Studios. Fast-forward to 2012, Jared relocated to Nashville, TN. He moved the home studio with him to be able to offer affordable studio time to independent artists. He also joined soul/R&B band Alanna Royale that same year, started writing songs and touring full time. Today, he is still touring with Royale, and has formed two side projects - Mount Worcester, an instrumental soul band and Second Spirit, a hardcore band. He also does freelance engineering and mix work at multiple studios in Nashville, and does tracking, mixing and remote session work from his home studio as well.
