“Jason Maynard has just released his debut album reflecting an impressive body of work dating back to 1999. The album is a rich tapestry of well-crafted songs. With his great vocal talents and song writing abilities, how he has managed to slip back under the radar remains a mystery. The songs are full of structural surprises and shifts, comprising both great musical composition and impressive lyrics. The build from slow acoustic to full on rock is pure genius. Brilliant harmonising, pretty elements and clever lyric analogies only add to the magic. Jason is a master of the rock ballad and has discovered how to craft great songs. It is hard to pick a favourite. ‘Spider’ builds to a complete rock anthem, ‘Those Were The Days’ will have you reflecting, while the lyrics in ‘Treading Water’ – “So hold on, hold on, can you throw yourself a lifeline?” are hard to beat for their raw and honest beauty. Order a copy of Jason Maynard’s debut album and enjoy! Lyn Leedham Vice-Pre”
