Last winter, New Jersey apparel brand Jetty had longtime friend Jared Hart into Jetty Headquarters. Hart, a native of Bayonne, is the frontman of The Scandals, but also has made a name for himself on his more folk-driven solo work.
Most recently, he formed Mercy Union with Nick Jorgensen, Benny Horowitz and Rocky Catanese. Hart sat down with Jetty Hall of Fam’r and New Noise contributor Jon Coen to talk about the work it takes to make your own path in music or life, common lessons of growing up in New Jersey and fishing in Bayonne storm drains. Then Hart and Catanese played an intimate show for some of our closest friends.
Jetty’s Craft & Calling is designed to highlight those who have crafted a life for themselves in a similar ethos to their own – making, working, creating. They are able to support themselves and/or their families and still follow their passion with hard work. They personify the mantra of Draw Your Own Line.
