About

Jason started performing as a solo acoustic musician in the summer of 2006 in a smoky hookah bar near the University of Toledo. Using live looping technology, an acoustic guitar, microphone, and some God-given musical talent, Jason makes music that has been labeled as "organic-acoustic-roots-music." His vocals are bright, clear and bellowing over layers of soulful, jammy acoustic guitar rhythms. In a live setting, Jason records guitar, beat boxes, and other percussive sounds, then loops them back while playing and singing over top of the looped sounds to create a one man band show.

Jason has just over 100 cover songs he performs. Ranging from a plethora of decades and genres, he performs songs from artists including The Beatles, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Tom Petty, Bill Withers, The Temptations, Michael Jackson, Johnny Cash, Buffalo Springfield, Foster the People, and many more. Jason has received feedback from members of his audience that say they love how he adds his own flavor to every song while keeping the integrity of the original artist rendition noticeable.

Jason also has a handful of original songs that he mixes amongst the cover songs. His original music draws influence from the genres of rock, folk, reggae, blues and hip hop. His songs are very groove-driven behind vocals that draw their influence from every day situations and observations of his faith in God, being a husband and father, cultural contexts, and stories from the vast amount of people Jason meets at his shows.

Jason tries to keep every show interesting by attempting new angles at musical styles and approaches. Every emotion seems to be incorporated at some point of every show, though Jason’s laid-back and uplifting demeanor is portrayed through his skillful guitar playing and shimmering vocals.
