Jared Putnam of The March Divide is a prolific songwriter, and has developed his style in public by releasing material at a non-stop pace. A deeper, more personal, and risk-taking approach to his lyrics took hold with Putnam’s most recent full-length, 2018’s Anticipation Pops, and continues with the “Distractions” series of singles that is now up to its just-released fourth volume.

The two-song “Distractions: Vol. 4” features the song “All I Wanna Do Is Laugh,” which Putnam has now shared a fun music video for. See it here.

‘Distractions’ is something I came up with as a way to continue to release the music I’m working on, between albums,” Putnam explains. “The name refers to the fact that when I’m writing and recording these songs, it’s usually a distraction from the things that I feel like I should be doing, like the business part of what I do. But at the end of the day, writing and recording is all I ever want to do anyway.”

Showing audiences more and more of what he’s about has helped The March Divide build a loyal following in the markets that Putnam frequently visits, and he’s not only a good showman on stage, he takes the time in-between songs and after the gig to connect with fans. It’s a personal touch that’s keeping him in business.

It’s Putnam’s affable way of grinding it out and hustling that has allowed him to do the thing most touring songwriters are unable to do, which is to keep on doing it at all. His growing fanbase funds the tour and their belief and appreciation of Putnam’s work has pushed him to his best songwriting to date.

The new two-song single “Distractions Vol. 4” by The March Divide is out now. “Distractions Vol. 3,” “Distractions Vol. 2,” “Distractions Vol. 1,” and Anticipation Pops, the fourth full-length album by The March Divide, are also all available now via Slow Start Records. Look for Jared Putnam out on the road throughout 2019.
