Jared and the Social Worker is much more than a man and his band. Born of struggle, sorrow, love and anger, this band of strangers quickly became musical friends, working out their worries through rock and roll. Part neo-grunge harbinger, part cathartic crooner, Jared leads the band as they weave brand new, original rock tunes with clever versions of eclectic covers in their live shows. As a well-versed veteran of the live music scene in western Canada, Jared knows how pull the crowd into his music. His tight 4-piece band keeps everybody moving with a heavy rolling rhythm section while the wicked lead guitar riffs are sure put smile on face as your head nods to beat. Like a parade on fire, Jared and the Social Worker are entertaining, captivating, heartbreaking and unforgettable.

Press Quotes


“It was bone chilling and emotional, and one could feel the pain echoing through his voice and words.“ – Harvin Bathal – UFV Cascade

It is best described as songs that cause “heart ache and heart break … with a smile.””

Carol Aun – Mission City Record


Jared Fowler jokes in his tour announcement that he’s abandoning his kids to go on the road, stay in cheap motels and eat bad food.

If only more people were as good at parenting.
– Heather Colpitts, Langley Advance



Though mid-tour he admits the roads have been just awful; he says, “you need to go where the true music lovers are, and sometimes that means travelling to the coldest, but best parts of Canada.”

This of course, includes Merritt.

Jade Swartzberg – Merritt Herald


In particular, he says he enjoyed the venue’s intimate, peaceful atmosphere, suited to Fowler’s music, which at one point included a lullaby.
