Jason was born to sing. His childhood was lost to hours plunking away on a small, Yamaha keyboard and recording into a toy karaoke set, all the while trying to belt it like his gospel-singing, Baptist mother. Raised in the church, he penned his first tunes at the organ, but then quickly decided that hymnody was not his style.
In his rebellious years, he met his first guitar – an old Harmony electric, straight out of the Sears’ Christmas catalogue. He taught himself a few blues licks and power chords and began to find a new voice – one born deep and straight from the soul. It was this voice that would take him away from home in pursuit of the ever-elusive Hollywood dream.
Fast forward a few years later – Jason and his band have shared the stage with artists such as Rocco Deluca, Nikka Costa, and Jonathan Foreman, as well as countless local indie favorites. His songs “Paper Roses” and “Aftermath” – from his 2008 self-titled EP – appeared on network television shows Gossip Girl and Ghost Whisperer in fall 2009.
Most recently to his acclaim, in August 2010, Jason self-released his first full-length album titled “Stomp Out the Sun.” He’ll take that record on the road in Winter 2011 for a cross-country tour.
