Jason Scott

[adrotate banner=”5″]

Jason ScottAmericana artist Jason Scott was raised in the land of boots, bolo ties, and burial grounds; bred on the Bible and shielded from most secular entertainment. His seemingly distant memory of that Oklahoma City childhood is a mosaic of tattered song books, equal parts fire and brimstone, and sneaking off to his uncle’s ‘79 Ford Bronco to listen to Conway Twitty tapes. Back then, an outside observer might have predicted Scott would grow up to be a preacher. But, Scott himself knew better: he was meant to make music, and a lot of it. Scott, now 33, has an enviable knack for earworm melodies that wrap warmly around his life-pondering lyrics. He’s a skilled multi-instrumentalist quickly becoming known for his unrelenting, sweat-soaked performances.
Scott is a producer, an engineer, and an in-demand session musician who in 2018 produced albums for Americana artists Carter Sampson, Ken Pomeroy, and Nellie Clay. In 2017 he co-produced his own 5-song debut EP Living Rooms with fellow Americana Okie Travis Linville. Scott is currently on tour with his fiery four-piece band delivering songs from Living Rooms and showcasing new material that will be on his long awaited first full-length album to be released in 2019. Scott self-released Living Rooms on his personal ON studios label and does most of his recording at ON studios, the home workspace he built. It’s pronounced “Owen” studios, named after the eldest of Scott’sJason Scott two sons. He is a member of the Americana Music Association and a BMI-licensed writer.
Scott recently earned a global tip of the hat from NPR Music when they spotlighted his song “She Good To Me” on World Cafe’s Heavy Rotation: 10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing alongside cuts by MGMT, Moby, and Jade Bird. The breezy mandolin-and-brushes gem is a tribute to Scott’s wife of nine years and is part of the Living Rooms EP. Scott’s brag-worthy band features legendary Oklahoma percussionist Michael Byars, Kangwa Mundende on stand-up and bass guitar, and guitarist Gabriel Mor.
