About Jason
"My Dad is an analytical thinker and has an enormous--- vocabulary. My Mom is very creative and an avid music lover. When I was a kid, I found my Mother's old acoustic, hidden away in the closet. At 15, I started writing my first "real" (verse-chorus...structure) songs. I Loved Her, She Didn't Love Me... The Church Song. I wrote 'cause I had something to say. Like any other craft, songwriting gets better with time. Build enough tables, eventually you get good at it. I like the sounds and the images created by the sounds. Any songwriter will tell you, making something out of thin air, and seeing it reach fruition, is an extreme high." Jason Davis has been playing professionally since 1992. In '98-'99, he recorded two albums with legendary producer Rodney Mills (.38 Special, Gregg Allman, Lynyrd Skynyrd) and engineer John Nielsen (Drivin''N Cryin', John Norum) with his band, Jonas Ridge. In 2001, Jason moved from North Carolina to Nashville, Tennessee. He worked with producer Buzz Stone and recorded several songs with David Northrup (Travis Tritt's drummer), Bob Minner (Tim McGraw), Shane Theriot (The Meters, Willie Nelson), and Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers Band, Gov.Mule). In 2002 he toured nationally with Johnny Cash's (ex) son-in-law, Daylon Wear. That rythym section branched off into what eventually came to be, the JDB. 2005- Jason's debut CD, "Fire Flower", is true Americana - Modern Country stories played with Alternative Country and Southern Rock n' Roll grooves. 2008- Jason's latest CD, "Art For Sale", is a bare, real piece of soul. Jason strips down to the essentials- his powerful voice backed by acoustic guitar, tender piano and colorful electrics, creating a cool, earthy vibe. 2009- Recording a new LP, and writing songs. Jason is currently residing in the mountains of North Carolina with his beautiful wife, two young boys and (three fish, a hound dog, and an adopted cat). "Just living the dream man."
