The Describers Jason wants to sing you songs and is trying hard not to overthink it…just like he overthinks most things. Just like he's totally overthinking this bio.
Leaning on his Americana, singer-songwriterly and offbeat influences, Jason is equally comfortable alone with an acoustic guitar as he is drowning in a sea of electric guitars and drums. He just wants to sing you songs - raw, wry and honest songs.
