Jason Wells was born and raised in Frankfort, and small town in central IN. With music all around at home, his dad being a huge music fan and record collector, he wanted nothing more that to be able to play guitar, and make a living from it. Like many other teenage kids into music and guitar, Jason spent most of his spare time getting bad grades and learning to play the guitar. Playing in small garage bands and doing what he could through the years, Jason performed for audiences every chance he could. Life in central IN wasn’t too conducive for being a musician so Jason settled down and started a family, and went along with the daily grind of working in factories and raising a family.
In 2008, when the economy went bad and everyone was loosing their jobs, Jason didn’t escape the trouble. He was laid off work for a year and a half and turned that opportunity into his chance to start a music career. A year and a half later Jason had a chance to back to work, and he caved in to the pressure of what seemed sensible. But Four months later, Jason’s Father passed away from cancer. This was the moment he realized that he was in the wrong place. Many thought he was not handling the loss very well but to Jason, it was fuel to the fire to start living. Starting from basically nothing, using old worn out sound equipment, Jason was making waves and fans everywhere he went. He had never stopped playing guitar and dreaming about being a full time musician through the years. Now he had his chance, and it was not to be wasted.
With many long hour days, and a lot of hard work, Jason’s career is growing every year. he has released three full length CDs, has radio airplay on FM Commercial stations, College radio, and internet radio. Jason has opened for Candlebox, Jimmie Van Zant, and Tantric. he has performed at the side stage at Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN. Jason now tours with his band, The Jason Wells Band, all throughout the midwest and keeps growing.
Jason had his Debut CD out in 2010, "Stepping Out" which was an acoustic album named after his crazy step out into the full-time music career. His song "Cancer" was an emotionally charged song touching on the effects of cancer and honest emotions it brings dealing with this terrible disease. His song "Right Back Where I've Been" is a down right grooving tune that received regular airplay on X103.3 in Indianapolis, the major commercial radio station for all new rock. Also many other stations including online streaming radio.
Jason's brand new CD "Inside" is packed full of electric guitar riff driven rock and roll. Recorded with some of the best musicians around, which Jason hand picked. The songs in this CD all have very significant meaning and deal with issues that Jason and many other people deal with in this crazy life.
Jason's new video "Friend or Foe", which features some sick and dirty slide guitar, was an instant success and an overnight hit.
Jason likes to keep in touch with his fans:
Jason is a person and musician that you won't forget, a real person with real music.
