Jason has been a musician about as long as he's been alive. His first love was singing and playing the piano, which he started learning at age 6. He grew up singing in church at an a capella church of Christ in Dallas, TX, where his dad was a deacon and song leader.
Jason sang in the choir and played in the band all through school, and he excelled at singing, playing the keyboard, and playing the trombone. He got a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Performance from Oklahoma Christian University in 2008.
Jason is now a high school band and guitar teacher in Wauchula, Florida, where he has picked up guitar playing. He started writing songs while a music major at OC, and has developed a catalog of original music ranging in style from Christian Worship to country to funky blues-rock. All of his music has a relaxed groove that matches his laid-back personality.
Since moving to Wauchula, Jason has become a familiar face performing at community events, festivals, restaurants and parties. He also plays regularly for church praise bands in Hardee County.
He is always working on new material of his own and is planning several new releases in 2020.
Jason has been blessed with a beautiful family: his lovely wife Melody, and their three young boys (featured in the Normal Guy music video!). They live in Wauchula, Florida. They have become leaders in their local church as Melody heads several ministries, including the kids' nursery and a weekly play group for moms and small children.
Jason grew up in Carrollton, Texas and has been involved in church his whole life. After graduating from Oklahoma Christian University, he took a brief 7-year hiatus from performing and teaching music, during which he and Melody got married, moved to Florida for Melody's work, and had their first baby. Jason then returned to first love, music, by getting his Florida teacher's certification and starting to teach music at Hardee Senior High School in Wauchula.
Jason loves teaching high school students (most days), and tries to have as big an impact on his students' lives as his band directors have had on his. He also loves writing music and performing, so he does both of those as often as he has the chance!
Jason's desire is to support his family and to do good in the world through writing and performing music while partnering with Christian charities and missions organizations in Florida. He has begun partnering with SendMeMissions in Wauchula to help raise money for local and international missions, and part of the revenue from his musical endeavors also goes to supporting Rapha International, the Annunciation House, and Care Portal.
