Jared Rabin's first all acoustic record, "Cold Rain and Snow" came out to critical acclaim in July 2021, and reached #4 on the Folk Alliance radio charts. Lee Zimmerman at Bluegrass Today said, "Like others of his ilk — Chris Thile, New Grass Revival, and the Punch Brothers in particular — Rabin commands attention and elevates interest through his playing and performances alone."


Jared started learning music at age five from his grandfather, who was the first chair violinist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Jared became a proficient multi-instrumentalist, went on to study jazz composition and has traveled the world performing an array of music. His songwriting has been recognized by international competitions, and his albums have been praised by American Songwriter, NPR and more. He is a long time fixture on the Chicago music scene. He can be found performing often there, as well as across the US.
