Jason is grateful to work with talented musicians in beautiful spaces and be a part of the creative alchemy that brings forth a record.

After years spent working as a musician, Jason was inspired to turn to music production and took a position as engineer at the Banff Centre in Alberta, where he worked with jazz artists Dave Douglas, Clarence Penn, Hank Roberts and Ben Monder.

Although accustomed to working with a wide range of artists, Jason is particularly versed at working with the sounds of Jazz, Americana, and World Music. The last few years have seen him engineer several albums for Grammy-nominated Jazz vocalist Kate McGarry, as well as engineer a solo album with Dom Flemons (founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops), Prospect Hill. Jason has been fortunate to work on two records with Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry.

    Jason had a really fast turnaround and absolutely nailed it on the 2nd revision. I'm confident I made the right choice going with him for this project and I'm sure you will be equally pleased and satisfied when you hire him. Jason was also very patient with my usual seemingly incomprehensible ramblings, and in spite of said ramblings managed to produce a top quality mix.

    Jason is a fantastic engineer, and I look forward to working with him again. My band ultimately chose to go a different direction in the end, but that had nothing to do with Jason's work or professionalism, both of which are top-notch. Communication with Jason about the project was easy and the most enjoyable artist/engineer exchanges I've ever had. I can't wait to work with him again.

    Working with Jason was a delight! He understood my vision and direction pretty instantly and managed to make a bunch of DI'd instruments and MIDI sound like an organic group of people playing together. He's a great communicator and was super patient with my notes and tweaks, which were few and far between because of his great work out of the gate. I'll definitely be hiring Jason for my next project!

    Great work from Jason - he is professional, prompt, and reliable, but along with that has a great sensibility and artistic view of the work. I couldn't be happier with the work he has just completed on a 16 track project. Deals with feedback and notes really well, and has done his upmost to deliver my artistic vision of the songs.
