Jaron and the Long Road To Love Biography
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Jaron Lowenstein recorded with his identical twin brother, Evan, in the pop duo Evan and Jaron. Evan and Jaron charted three singles, including "Crazy for This Girl," which reached #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 2000. The duo split up in 2003 so that Evan could focus on raising his family.
Jaron co-wrote and recorded his first solo single, "Pray for You," as Jaron and the Long Road to Love in late 2009. Starting in February 2010, Big Machine Records assumed promotion of the single and a forthcoming album, which will be distributed through a partnership of Jaron's Jaronwood label and Universal Republic. The song has reached Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and the Billboard Hot 100.
Jaron told Technorati that the song "wasn't started or pushed by some major label or organization. I would love to take the credit for its success, but honestly this is something fans want and they are the ones calling radio to have them play it." Hank Friedmann directed a music video for the song, which has aired on CMT Pure Country (CMT Pure) and Great American Country (GAC). A second video, which includes Jamie Pressly, debuted in April 2010.
His debut album, Getting Dressed in the Dark, was released on June 22, 2010.
