Check it out: I peaked at #13 nationally and #17 globally on ReverbNations Christian Rock charts on Feb. 17th. Gotta say I'm pretty pleased with that although when I got that close I was really hoping to crack the top 10. Hey that could come yet. I appreciate everyone who listens. I work hard to share my music with as many as will listen and be blessed by it. This is what God has given me to voice my faith.

So far in 2015 I've added one new song, "I'm Calling" and reworked "Walk Along" Both can be heard in the player at left on this page. Also finishing up a rework of "Gonna Be a Wonder." After that it must be time for something new. I've have a few things waiting for further attention.

The Depression Tool Kit has received a lot of good feed back, some public & some private. I'm thankful for any help it gives anyone. So far I've had a new post daily on Facebook since I began writing it. I also eventually get them moved over to the link above. I'm sure sooner or later the well will begin to run dry but it you haven't already checked it out there are plenty of posts to catch up on. When the new thoughts slow down I will probably repost from the beginning at a slower pace and add new as they come up.

This Sunday night I'm excited to see Carmen at my home church. He was a big as it gets in Christian music a few decades ago and is now back on tour after a bout with cancer. If you're in the Crystal River Fl area you can join us. For details click here. I understand that tickets are beginning to get low so act now if you want to attend.

In the meantime I hope God is blessing you and life is good.     Jared

Holidays are over and things revert to the normal. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year.

I've added something new. It's called the Depression Tool Kit. This is a collection of brief commentary on depression related issues. This is an area I've had some personal experience with. This is not professional advise. This is me sharing my thoughts on things I've learned in dealing with the challenging disorder. Hope that what I have to share is beneficial to others. If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, hang in there. Better days are coming. Hope this small contribution is of some help. My prayer for you're increasing well being accompany these posts.

Latest songs are In The Sanctuary and Gonna Be a Wonder. Both are in the player on the left of the page. There's a short blog relating to In the Sanctuary here.

I want to thank everyone for the tremendous response I've gotten for my new song, Love, Love. It's drawn a bundle of compliments and lots of plays. If you haven't heard it yet, it's in the player on the left of the page.

This is new... I've just added my testimony to this site. It's something I'd wanted to do from the start but for many reasons had not done. Well, now it's done. It's pretty frank and somewhat in depth. I've broken it down into parts for convenience sake. You can read it, listen to it or both as you prefer at this link: www.jwalnum.com/testimony.htm

So far I've tracked drum sequences, bass, acoustic guitars and synth orchestrations on my cover of Neil Morse's “We all Need Some Light.” It's such a tremendous song going in. I hope I do it some justice.

      So that previously unnamed song I mentioned in my July 23rd update wound up being my newest song, “Love, Love,” That's currently in the player at left to be played for free. It has a hint of a prog influence. I think you'll enjoy it.      Meanwhile I'm working on a cover of a song called “We All Need Some Light Now.” This is originally by one of my favorite musicians and I wanted to cover it for a long time. In it's original state it's not a flat out Christian song. It actually predates the composer, Neal Morse's, public confession of Jesus. Never-the-less the context is pertinent and I have kept all the verses and chorus as written. I have added a third verse and a 2nd chorus of my own. This is still in the early tracking stages.
      Today I'm at 25 in the world on ReveerbNation's chart for Christian Rock. 23 is the highest I've ever been. Will the current climb on the charts continue? I don't know. We'll just have to stay posted. Later.

    So what do think of the new site? It's taken a while to get it done with so many irons in the fire but now at last here it is. Hope you enjoy it and find it easy to navigate.

     Projects include just completed remix of a song I originally wrote in 2008. It's the first time I re-wrote a secular song into a Christian song. I call these Born Again Covers but at that time I had not yet coined the expression. This ones called "Ain't No Sonshine" and can be heard in the player at left.

     Also in the player is "Alone & Pray" a brand new recording of a song writen sometime ago.

     Otherwise, I'm working on a new song as yet untitled. Just started arranging the music and the lyric is still pending.

     Appreciate all you who are following and listening. Hope the Lord is blessing you greatly. If my music blesses you please be sure to share it with others.

     Otherwise, continuing to play with the praise team at Crystal River Church of God . If you're in the area stop in and say hello. Be ready to get your praise on.

In Christ,
