Jason Suthern

Jason SuthernBorn and raised in Dallas, Texas, Jason Suthern and his mother made the move to Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1996, his freshman year in high school. Jason and his mom wanted to leave the big city life and settle in a smaller town. In 2000, he graduated from W.B Ray High School in Corpus Christi. Music has always been a part of Jason’s life and his mother reflected, “He started singing when he was in diapers”. Jason has fond memories of entertaining his friends in day care. When Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” came out, his family often caught him standing on top of his bed singing his heart out to “Billie Jean”. Pop music and R & B were his early musical influences. At the age of 18, a girlfriend introduced him to country music and he soon found himself singing along to Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, John Michael Montgomery, Tim McGraw, and many others.
One day he realized he had a talent for writing music. He was singing in the shower and started coming up with lyrics that surprised him. The first song he wrote was “Focus My Love”. Jason soon started going to every Karaoke bar he could find to help him gain aJason Suthern stronger singing voice and to help with his stage presence.
Jason eventually took a break from singing in order to follow his dream of becoming a radio personality. Although he was hoping to work for a Country station, he met the Program Director of a local Tejano station, CLUB 98.3 KLHB, who gave him the opportunity to work as a part time weekend DJ. His radio name, given to him by the Program Director, was “Jammin’ J.V., the Weekend Warrior”. Jason knew then that his heart was in country music and he would eventually take his singing career to the next level. After 3 years in the radio business, he left to do just that. In 2007, he began recording a promotional CD at Hacienda Records with studio engineer R.D. Garza, who took his time to make sure this CD was just right.
Jason never turned down an opportunity to take the stage when it was offered to him. He soon met the best musicians in Corpus Christ, Texas, who were willing to stand by his side and they became “The Jason Suthern Band”. In November 2009, Jason teamed Jason Suthernup with songwriters Lee Mack, Luke Hales, and studio producer Jason Burt in Austin,Texas to record “I’ll Still Be There” and “Dear Nanny”, which have been featured on local Country stations. Jason has performed for local community events in the Coastal Bend area, such as the San Patricio SPCA Denim & Diamonds Casino Night (which he has done every year since 2009), Aransas Pass Civic Center Grand Opening (April 2009), Aransas Pass Chamber Annual Banquet (January 2010), and for the C.E.O’s No Excuses Annual BBQ, opening for Rick Trevino (March 2010). In October 2010, Jason, along with the help of Cricket Wireless, organized a fundraiser, benefiting the American Red Cross for the Los Colonias Subdivision flood victims.
The event featured local bands, including The Jason Suthern Band and was held at Brewster Street Ice House in Corpus Christi. The event raised an impressive $4,000 due to the generosity of the Corpus Christi community. Since 2011, Jason has had theJason Suthern privilege of sharing a stage with many different artists, including Wade Bowen, Kyle Park, Cody Canada, Pear Ratz, Bart Crow, Granger Smith, Max Stalling, Dirty River Boys, Fred Andrews (Honey Browne), and Paul Eason. Jason’s goal is to have the best Country cover band in the Coastal Bend and to play at all the honkytonks in Texas. He plans on completing his first full length CD, “Suthern Hospitality”, in the near future.
