Although he was raised encircled by country music, singer/songwriter Jason James found the genre later on. A indigenous of Texas Town, Texas, James started playing acoustic guitar in his teenagers, playing in punk and alt-rock rings well into his twenties before finding a enthusiasm for classic nation and honky tonk. Changing program, he began composing country songs influenced by greats like Hank Williams and George Jones, ultimately putting a music group together and striking the Tx open-mike picture. He was ultimately found by alt-country/Americana label New Western, who arranged him up with maker John Evans and a team of Texas studio room vets. The original sessions had been such successful that New Western delivered him up to Nashville to record with Keith Gattis (Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam), who helped him total his self-titled debut. Released in the summertime of 2015, Jason Wayne’ debut includes a elegant, decidedly retro experience much like contemporaries like Sturgill Simpson and New Western labelmate Robert Ellis.
