    ​Pell Shares How L.A. Is Changing His Sound

    From Louisiana to Mississippi to Southern California, the rapper introduces a matured sound influenced by his latest destination

    Jared Pellerin is an eclectic, dream rapper whose existential rumination provides a foundation for his lyrics as he seamlessly flips from affectionate wordsmith to hook-smashing crooner. He gleaned emotion from his pain when Hurricane Katrina forced his family to move to Jackson, Mississippi, when Pell was only 14. In this clip, we see a live performance with Sofar Sounds and get a taste of what life is like for Pell after his recent move to Los Angeles—the city that heavily influenced the maturing sound on his newest album, Limbo.
