“Jared never ceases to amaze me with his diligence and attention to minute detail. He is always “on the ball” and even one step ahead of me in his work. To have someone like this on your team is priceless, because such persons are so few and far between. With Jared’s help and knowhow concerning internet promotion, I climbed from my status as a “local musician” to being a nationally recognized artist in my genre. His skill as a booking agent is also invaluable. If you could only afford to have one person on your team, Jared Ingersol would be that one.”

“After several years of working with Jared, it’s hard for me to imagine how I ever managed without him. In the first year that we worked together Jared boosted my online presence and streamlined my workflow. He encouraged me to try “Kickstarter” to fund my most recent CD, and organized and ran the campaign which was a huge success! He takes the initiative, coming up with new ways to help me take care of all the time-consuming administrative and promotional work that a 21st century musician has to do. He operates quickly and efficiently, sometimes carrying out tasks before I have even asked him to, leaving me more time to focus on recording and performing. His enthusiasm for music and his great attitude are pretty rare in this business of music. I consider myself very lucky to have him on my team!”
– Dave Nachmanoff
“It has been a pleasure to work with Jared Ingersol on the radio promotion of my recent recording, Brooks’ Blues. He was professional and thorough, spreading the word to the DJs about what I was doing and getting them the recording right away. The response has been great. I’ll be back!”
– Brooks Williams
“Jared Ingersol released our debut Carpenter & May CD to folk radio on September 1st. When the September Folk Radio charts were announced Oct. 4th, I was simply amazed to see that Carpenter & May are the #1 artists, #1 album, and have 5 songs charted in the top 15 including a #3. While we were confident that we had made a solid project, without the tenacious, thorough efforts of Jared Ingersol, this simply would not have happened. There is no doubt, Jared can get it done!”
– Fred Carpenter
“Jared Ingersol has done web work for Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, Flatpicking Mercantile, The Flatpick Network, FGM Records, and Brad Davis Music for over ten years. He not only has an impressive knowledge and high level of competency concerning programming, web design, and social media, he also gets the job done on time. I have never been disappointed in Jared’s ability to complete a job that he was assigned and I was always impressed that he could it done faster than I ever expected. Not only did everything that I asked him to do get done efficiently, but he typically showed great initiative by completing tasks without being told they needed to be done. He knew what needed to be done and he did it before he was asked so that I didn’t have to worry about it. I could not have asked for a more trustworthy person to do my web work for me. In the fast changing world of the internet and social media, having someone who you can rely on to get a job done quickly and do it very well is a godsend. Jared was that person for me for over a decade.”

“Any musician looking for someone to present their group in a professional and effective way should hire Jared Ingersol. As a busy librarian I appreciate performers and/or their representatives who approach me without the high-pressure tactics giving me enough information to make an informed decision. Jared was wonderful to work with in booking a music group for my library and was extremely responsive in all of his interactions with me. When you are a spending a limited budget on an unknown group it helps to have confidence in the service provider and Jared delivers just that.”
– Beth Crowley, Director, E.C. Scranton Memorial Library

We were honored to have a #1 song and #2 album in February 2010 and the #1 song and #1 album for October 2010 on the Folk DJ chart all because Jared provided the backbone and support the music needed. He successfully finds the right audience for your music and he does it in the most efficient and organized of ways. He will be dedicated to your cause just like he was for ours. Thanks Jared!”
