About Building Blocks: At Building Blocks we aim to cultivate entrepreneurship through creative conversations. We aim to teach and inspire local entrepreneurs. In understanding the obstacles of starting a business in NOLA we are able to identify problems and form solutions. Since taking the industry by storm in 2014, the electric New Orleans native, born Jared Pellerin, has continued to expand his sound and musicality. His stellar Floating While Dreaming mixtape garnered attention and praise from press across the board, including FADER, Billboard, XXL, Complex, among others, yet he never settled. After touring with G-Eazy, in 2015 he released LIMBO, an EP produced by TV on The Radio’s Dave Sitek, developing his "experimental soul" sound to set him apart from his peers. After supporting Kehlani on a nationwide tour, Pell launched his first headlining run, spanning 28 cities and music festivals across the country including Hangout, Firefly, and Pemberton. Before his new project drops in 2019, Pell plans to release four new loose singles that he will begin to roll out to preview his new melodic direction to fans. “Fallback” — one of the four singles being released — is an excellent example of Pell’s ever evolving sound. With over 90M streams to his name and being one of the new faces of NOLA, Pell is turning his dreams into his reality. Audience members will be encouraged to engage in the conversation with questions targeting business hurdles. Together let's listen, learn, and most importantly BUILD!
