Toledo, OH area native Jason knew at the age of 6, when he first heard Led Zeppelin's “What Is and What Should Never Be” that music would forever be a part of his life.
He began at the age of 12 studying and learning the tenor banjo – entirely by ear. With the uncanny ability to also play songs by ear with little or no practice, he decided to pick up the guitar at 19 to see if he could accomplish the same thing. With the help of his good friend (teaching him just the 7 basic open chords), he did.
With a Synsonics guitar and the entire Led Zeppelin catalog, he got to work. Spending upwards of 4 hours a day between college classes, Jason was determined to learn every Jimmy Page lick in the book… all by ear.
Over the years, he honed in and developed his own unique melodic playing style and after living in several locations around the country, he found a home in Las Vegas.
"Music is something that is meant to be experienced with the mind, body, and soul, no matter what type of music it is." That statement pretty much sums up Jason's attitude and approach to music.
Jason's musical influences include: Jimmy Page, Ty Tabor, David Gilmour, Josh Zee, Nuno Bettencourt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jerry Cantrell, Adam Jones, Audley Freed, Zakk Wylde, and Frank Hannon to name a few.
