Jared & the Mill was never meant to be a band. The group was never meant to garner national attention at South by Southwest, and it was never meant to become a local darling known for its vocal harmonies and relentless gigging. And it definitely was never meant to play stadiums across the country. Here it is, however, doing all these things. The product of frontman Jared Kolesar's need for an impromptu band some years ago, the folk-pop project is now musical force with momentum. You may know the band from its doing rounds at Tempe venues or making local festival appearances, but Jared & the Mill has been forced to grow quickly. The speedy evolution has been mostly due to the group's recent stadium tour opening for Barry Gibb. Kolesar and the boys are returning to the Valley with a tight performance honed in amphitheaters and clubs alike. Jared & the Mill's homecoming show differs from most because it marks the end of a chapter for the band and a sign of bigger and better things to come. Touring musicians they may be, but it's their return to the Valley that promises their most heartfelt set yet.
