JARET CAMPISI: Pineapple SunriseHey my name is Jaret Campisi and I started playing guitar when I was 15 after listening to a Dave Matthews cd. I immediately fell in love with the acoustic guitar and haven't put it down ever since. Before I knew it I was writing my own songs and playing out around some local places. Most people seemed to like what I was doing so I decided to record my music and put it up on the web for everyone to hear.
I primarily taught myself how to play and sing so much of the chords I use are unconventional but I think that gives it an authentic feel that you won't find with to many other artists. Most of the songs I write come from things that happen in my life, or stuff I see going on in the world around me. Along with writing songs that are meaningful to me, I try to incorporate larger lessons that everyone can relate to as well. Although I'm only 22 I feel I have a different approach to offer people a fresh way of looking at life in a new light, which is why my album is titled Pineapple Sunrise. Hope you enjoy and thanks for checking out my music!
Besides playing guitar, I am finishing up my last semester at Penn Sate University where I am studying Graphic Information Systems. I also ran track for penn state where I ended up winning the Big Ten Championships in the 400 Hurdles in 2005 and ran in the USA championships that same year. When I won big tens I ran a 50.2 and was ranked 40th in the world at the time, which doesn't really mean much, but I think it sounds cool. haha Anyway, I'm still running currently to see where it takes me while trying to jumpstart my music career as well. Probably more than you needed to know, but there you have it. Take it easy and tell your friends!
