ABOUT

Hi. I'm Jason, and I'm happy to play a variety of styles. I've played in jazz, rock, acoustic, funk and metal bands. I've been generously described by band mates as excellent, and that’s very humbling. I'm highly professional in my ethic. I hold myself to high standards performing music. I produce the live game presentation for one of our four major sports teams so I am used to crowds, pressure, and performing. Timing is everything in drumming, my work, and life. I enjoy competing with myself and forming musical relationships.

Influences

Jimmy Chamberlin's speed, power, nuance and jazz inspired depth drove me to begin playing. I owe thousands of hours of joy playing the drums to him.

Danny Carey's impact, emphasis, and drive is inspiring. His odd time signatures bumfuzzle and amuse.

Tony Williams' communication is key. It doesn't matter what you're playing, how cool/fast/innovative, if the audience can't hear or perceive your intention, you've lost.
