Jason Robbin, the self-professed singer/songwriter of the band is the glue that holds it all together. From the very beginning Jason took a special interest in seeing to it that the music he took part in succeeded. Jason has never lost sight of the dream of seeing his music reach the masses. Although originally a self-trained guitarist, he has recently returned from an intense study period in New York City. Armed with a renewed knowledge of guitar technique and song arrangement, Jason has not wasted any time incorporating his new skills into his collection of deeply personal lyrics and ballads. When you hear a Madison Basement song that tells a story, you can be sure that Jason is the man behind it, sharing his personal experiences with you as if you had known him all your life.
Jason Robbin plays Fender, Gibson and Guild guitars and uses Fender amps.
With a hard edge as well as a superb sense of melody, Jay McDermott is a driving force in all of The Madison Basement's endeavors. Always ready to go that extra mile whether it means a lack of sleep or money, when Jay has a goal he sees it through. As a self-trained musician, Jay’s style represents his only teachers; the musicians he listens to, and he listens to a lot. With metal in his veins and poetry in his heart, if your listening to a Madison Basement song and find yourself confused as to whether you want a hug or a punch in the face Jay is most likely behind it, so just enjoy.
