In 2014, Nashville-born singer/songwriter Joseph Jared traded his acoustic guitar for a Telecaster and joined forces with friends to form The Dangerous Method. They created a sound which fused the confessional melodicism of music from the ‘70s with the quirky intensity of alternative and punk bands from the ‘90s, resulting in a potent blend of raw, power-pop tinged alt rock. The band began crafting material for their debut record, a concept album entitled Cinema Junkie, featuring 10 songs exploring movies, love, obsession and addiction. They released the album in April 2016. The band then began playing regularly around Nashville. "Travels," a new EP, was released in July 2017. After an extensive run of local shows entitled How Many Times Can We Play in One Year While Still Holding Down Day Jobs they took a break to work on a new, full-length album. It will be released in late 2019.
