The March Divide
The March Divide
A tireless songwriting machine (three albums and five EPs in the last five years), Jared Putnam of The March Divide is also an unlikely torch bearer of a sound that was pioneered by bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, The Promise Ring, and Mineral, and eventually exploded with artists such as Paramore, Dashboard Confessional, and Jimmy Eat World. As many of these artists make comebacks, or get discovered by young people for the first time, Putnam has been steadily building a loyal audience since breaking up The Conversation, his own band of that era.

Over the last few years, the press has discovered Putnam’s “completely clever” (Performer) songs “all about lyrics and melodies” (Babysue) that are “impressively hooky” (American Songwriter), filled with “bittersweet beauty” (Impose), “catchy hooks” (Innocent Words), and voiced by a man “gifted with a serious set of pipes” (The Aquarian). Atwood Magazine recently said, “Eloquently simple and concise, Putnam’s lyrics are immediately relatable. His experience and memory transfer directly from the song to the listener.”
