Cover Songs!

I don’t often play cover songs, not really my thing. But when I do, I always try to play Bruce Springsteen. Occasionally we play a cover song at shows. We have covered Arctic Monkeys, Neil Young, Citzen Cope, and maybe a couple others I can’t remember. However, I have never actually recorded a cover song and released it publicly before now. Below is a link to my new single of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire”. I’ve always loved this song (reminds me of a very young Courtney Cox….though I know that was a video for a different song). I tried to take it, jumble it around, and create my own take on this iconic classic. I hope you take the time to give it a listen (cause it wasn’t easy to get a good take of this song in one run!).

Take care,

JSB....back at it, in a freshly remodeled studio....

Hey yo…..I haven’t written an update on here for a while. As a band we have been going through some significant changes and though they took a time to sort, I feel we are finally ready to get back on the proverbial musical chair.

Musically I felt we needed a hiatus, the music was getting bogged down, enthusiasm and creativity was waning, and I felt like I was simply writing the same song over and over. In addition I have a new employer which required a fairly intensive training program, and Alex (lead guitar) has moved forward into a different phase of life which has required him to step back from “banding” with us. All this came together coincidentally with the end of the summer festival season which made me feel it was a ripe time for a hiatus.

Now, the rain has come, us in the PNW are inside a lot, and my creative juices are flowing! I took the opportunity of a hiatus to remodel my studio so I have a fresh and inspiring create space. I love my new space and I find myself down their every moment I can afford.

Tonight is our first band practice in 2 months +, down one member and still searching for a lead guitar player, but back at it and ready to make noise. I’m excited for what lays ahead for us.

You can expect new music from us starting in 2019, so stay tuned…….Play Your Hand EP is in route.

Thank you!

I wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who made our show at Conor Byrne Pub in Ballard WA on Mar 23 a success.  The turnout was overwhelming and we had a terrific time playing music (despite the struggles I was having with my equipment).  Thank you Runaway Symphony for allowing us to play on your bill, it is always an honor.  Your music continues to be mind blowing.  

We play out much less frequently than in days passed, and I must say, it makes each time more special.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making the effort to trod down to Ballard and pack the place, we had a blast.

Ballard WA, we are on our way.......

I love playing live!  Its so much fun to build setlist, tweek your tones, get in that last practice with the band.  For a long time we played live as much as possible.  We were tailoring our live set, perfecting it, making it something we could be proud of.  Now we play much less frequently, essentially placing quality over quantity.  I believe it is paying off and I hope you can join us tomorrow night, Friday 3.23 9pm, Conor Byrne Pub in Ballard WA.  

We will be joined by Runaway Symphony and Brian Stai.  It is going to be a fantastic evening of music.  IN ADDITION, we will be releasing our newest EP, Robot Dance EP.  We are super excited about this album.  Here is what the Old School Project said about our latest album.

"A light hearted, electric guitar driven, rock collection. It sharply contradict Jason's usual themes of solace and introspection. Troubadour roots be dammed, Jason rocks here and Seattle's indie music community is finally showing signs of coming to life."

We will be showcasing all the songs of this album plus many more.  Hope to see you there!
