Originally from Oklahoma City, OK, Jason was born into a family that loved music & encouraged him to follow my passion. Well, at a young age, it seemed that he was pretty hooked on music, though he wasn’t yet that excited about practicing piano.

In jr. high & throughout high school he became increasingly intrigued by Fingerstyle Guitar, and began composing his own songs and arrangements. In 2009 he began studying Music Technology at Oral Roberts University and was given opportunities to play in front of the student body as well as Television audiences. Whenever he was asked to play a solo, this pushed him to arrange & write songs that eventually became part of his depute album “Escape”.

In August 2011 he announced the release of Escape at ORU by performing a new arrangement of Amazing Grace & Coldplay’s Viva La Vida played on two guitars at the same time. In part because of this, he was asked to open for his ultimate guitar hero Tommy Emmanuel. Since then, playing two guitars at once has been an increasingly important aspect of my music.

Since graduating from Oral Roberts University in Dec 2011, he has played countless concerts, weddings, and other events as a full time job. In November, 2013, he put his Music Technology degree to full use and entirely self produced his Christmas Album “Perfect Light”. With the help of the studios at Oral Roberts University and wonderful resources from Pensadosplace.tv he was able to release a solo guitar album with the highest level of sound quality.

Since then he has been creating new music for himself and others, as well as continuing to perform on a regular basis.
