Though musical all his life, starting on accordion at age 3, it wasn't until recently that Jason started seriously pursuing musical performance and recording.
A busy and sought after cancer doctor by day, it wasn't until one of Jason's patients inspired him to write and play her a farewell song (It's So Hard To Say Goodbye) on the palliative care ward that his musical talents again became known to others. This lead to Jason's first gig and a chance hookup with now producer Dave Ward that quickly led to the recording and release of his debut album "Life Between Pings" in October 2012.
Jason has been connected with some amazing musicians in the Toronto music scene - many of whom collaborated on the recording of "Life Between Pings" and performed in the major CD release party (Opera House, Toronto) and video release party (Revival, Toronto) that followed. He is currently performing mainly smaller gigs in solo or duet format and working on album number two - planned for recording this fall - though always looking for opportunities to perform in bigger shows with his rocking band!
Jason's musical influences are varied - ranging from Adele, Billy Joel, Phil Collins to Blue Rodeo - and anything 80s!! Clearly enjoying varied music has led to his success in writing and performing music within many genres (Pop, Country, Jazz, Blues) that makes it exciting for performers and audiences alike when he takes to the stage - whether just solo with his piano - or jamming with up to a 12-piece band (check out his hot cover of "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins that recently went viral on YouTube!).
Jason's goal is simply to share my music with as many people as possible – hoping that it will bring to them the same sense of passion, peace and fulfillment it has brought to his own life.
