Jared & The Mill’s SXSW Serenade Strikes a Chord with Press

Image
Arizona buzz band, Jared & the Mill, had stopped by the hospital of fan Mason Endres, 18, who was injured during the horrific SXSW tragedy which occurred last week. Endres had only been speaking to the band shortly before the accident took place that evening on the streets of Austin. Endres suffered a fractured neck, broken leg and broken nose. She had a rod placed into her leg and surgery to repair a blocked artery in the other leg.
Upon hearing the news, Jared & The Mill stopped by to see Endres in the hospital over the weekend, and brought the show to her, literally, as they performed a handful of songs around her bedside. The band played “Just for Now,” “Love to Be Found,” “Ides of Fall” and “Western Expansion.” 

Watch Jared & the Mill perform for Mason here:
“It’s been quite a rollercoaster,” Endres’ father Dan told Statesman.com. “She’s going to be fine. There are some people out there that are not as lucky as us.” Six other patients from the crash remain hospitalized, four in serious or critical condition. “She was on monitors when we told her that Jared was coming, and her heart rate jumped way up,” her father adds. I think the pure excitement of everything has gotten me through today. I felt better than I ever imagined I thought I would feel in a hospital.”
The band have recently been making headlines in Rolling Stone, People, Entertainment Weekly, Time, Huffington Post, Vice, FUSE TV, Al Jazeera, Buzzfeed, MTV, Mashable, Gawker, NME, USA Today, Billboard, Yahoo News, and many more.
