Jared Faber (also known as J-Radical) is an American musician, composer, producer and multi instrumentalist from Colombian descent. He grew up in New York City where he attended High School of Performing Arts, and later continued his music education at Berklee College of Music, studying jazz arranging and composition.

Faber is primarily known as a composer for television and film. He was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on "Clifford's Puppy Days".

Faber composed the music for the ABC show Emily's Reasons Why Not starring Heather Graham. In addition to the episodic scoring, Faber co-wrote the theme song with frequent collaborator Emily Kapnek, which was performed by Macy Gray. Kapnek and Faber also composed the theme song for "As Told by Ginger" and "Clifford's Puppy Days".

Often credited as J-Radical, Faber is half of the production team Urban Legend with partner Kool Kojak. Their first record "Tranquilidad Cubana" was partially recorded in Havana and has been featured on numerous TV shows including Dexter (Showtime), Cane (NBC). Also he is the founder of the label "Blind Lemon Music".

Faber's forays into Latin music have led to him scoring the Fox pilot "Ernesto" starring Wilmer Valderrama, which had a decidedly Mexican style as well as collaborating with Wilmer and Rosario Dawson on the viral web series, "Voto Latino".

Faber contributed music to the film The Long Shots starring Ice Cube. The film also featured a song Faber co-wrote and produced, performed by Chris Pierce and Sy Smith.

Faber resides and is established working in Los Angeles, California.
