In an industry of overproduced, sales-driven musical icons, Jason's work leaps out at you as being different - as being driven simply by art. The lyrics of his songs are poetry, his melodies grab you with a sly aggressiveness, and his driving guitar skills lay the groundwork for each masterpiece. While he is unquestioningly a blues/rock artist, each of his songs surprise you with the breadth of thrilling, unexpected, and chain-banging ways in which the two elements are fused. Some dive down to the minimalistic roots of blues music, while others – like Pleasure in Pain - could break a stage with their powerful drums and soulful guitar screams. Close your eyes and the ghosts of Buckley and Hendrix will appear; open your eyes and you may recognize a young Michael Jackson. But by the end of a live show or a listen through his record, you’ll forget all connotations, as his original tunes take you on a journey not into another world, but down into the heartbreak, anger, and joy that are at the root of great music.
