Evan Mitchell Lowenstein and Jaron David Lowenstein (born March 18, 1974)[1] are American musicians and identical twin brothers who performed as Evan and Jaron. Evan and Jaron have recorded three studio albums and charted three singles on the Pop Songs charts. The duo's highest-peaking single is "Crazy for This Girl," which peaked at 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2000.

Life and career[edit]

The Lowensteins grew up in Tucker, Georgia. Their parents are Leslie (Diamond) and Charles Lowenstein. The duo were raised in an Orthodox Jewish family, and attended Greenfield Hebrew Academy and Yeshiva High School.[2][3] Through their mother, they are related (by marriage) to actor Logan Lerman.[4] They began performing in the folk-pop genre in coffee houses in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. In 1994, their live album, Live at KaLo's Coffee House, was released, and drew some attention. After touring for a year, in 1996 they released a second independent album, Not from Concentrate and performed at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. While touring they were noticed by Jimmy Buffett, who signed them to Island Records, the label on which they released We've Never Heard Of You, Either in 1998.[5]

In 2000, the duo released Evan and Jaron for Columbia Records.[6] The album included hit singles "Crazy for This Girl", "From My Head to My Heart", and "The Distance."[6] At the height of their success, Evan started a family and the touring ceased. Their most recent album, Half Dozen, offered more of an Americana/country sound and included six songs as well as three additional bonus tracks.

In March 2006, the pair appeared on ABC's reality TV show, American Inventor, showcasing their Pit Port, a container for discarded seeds and pits in various fruits and nuts.[7]

Jaron and the Long Road to Love[edit]

Jaron released a solo single, "Pray for You", credited to Jaron and the Long Road to Love, to country radio in November 2009.[8] The song reached the top 20 on the Hot Country Songs charts, and the top 40 of the Hot 100. Jaron released his debut album, Getting Dressed in the Dark, on June 22, 2010. The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart selling 23,916 copies in its first week.[9]
