Stretching Towards the Sun
Jason is a Chicago based singer songwriter with a poetic and engaging lyrical style. His song's catchy melodies evoke the radio friendly pop of his youth; while his guitar playing and singing are influenced by his contemporary heroes like David Wilcox, Michael McDermott and Peter Mayer. After working for years in Chicago radio Jason decided to dedicate more time to his family, leaving his career to become a full time stay at home dad. Jason soon discovered that spending time at home with his two children afforded him the opportunity to also devote himself to writing and playing music more fully. Stretching Towards the Sun marks Jason's first recording. Produced with the help of friends; Lou Carlozo, Dave Bowling and John Vaeth. The arrangements are sparse, relying only on Jason's vocals and guitar, except for 4 tracks, that Vaeth provides bass for.
