Jaron Strom: "Grenade"
Hometown: Shelby, North Carolina
Resident: Charlotte, North Carolina
Jaron is a web designer by profession, but he spends all of his extra effort making his own music. Even though Jaron's parents sang together in a duo when they were younger, it was his grandfather that instilled in him a love of music. It wasn't until college that he began performing in church and singing at open mic nights. Eventually he joined a band. He even landed a publishing deal with Colbie Caillat's publishing company. While Jaron has a local following, he is ready for a big breakthrough.
