Produced by Gelman’s go-to-collaborator, Sam Welch, “Impulsive” was co-written with
pop artists Will Jay and Sam Creighton. The dark-pop track reflects Gelman’s penchant
for spontaneous decision making, and the consequences that follow. The production
seamlessly blends the emotional storytelling of the lyrics with infectious melodies.
Gelman says, “The song is about the self-destructive part of me that acts without
restraint. When everything else is in the world is out of our control, it’s okay to change
what IS in your hands... these choices liberate me because they’re MINE.”
Amidst the pandemic, Gelman has been hard at work finishing new music. After this
release, listeners can expect more singles throughout 2021— including a collaboration
with Maty Noyes.
The track has already been recognized by notable industry figures Adam Lambert,
Tyler Oakley, Leland, Parson James, and Vincint on social media. Nicole
Scherzinger tweeted a link to the song as well, adding “you’re such a hard working,
creative soul and this is such a bop.“
Pop singer, rapper, and subversive performer Jared Gelman has never been shy about
standing up for what he believes in. From a generation enamored with excess and
narcissism, the power of Gelman's artistry is in the message and genuine intention
behind it. Between his catchy hooks and in your face visuals, it's Gelman's
unapologetic sense of self that will continue to propel his career to new heights.
Gelman grew up in a New Jersey suburb, located right outside of New York City. It was
growing up in such proximity to the metropolitan area that helped transform him into
the person he is today. From an early age, Gelman noticed others’ reactions to his
unconventional presentation—his unique style and at times, eccentric ensembles, were
not always accepted nor understood. Coming to terms with his queer identity (and his
relationship to the world around him) directly inspired his desire to get into music. Now
residing in Los Angeles, Gelman’s work will certainly move his career to the forefront of
those in his realm and continue to entertain all those watching.
