Friday Night Music: Jason Masi
Join us for a BIG Friday night.
Jason Masi is an American/DC based singer-songwriter. He got his start with Richmond, VA based group, Jubeus, opening for acts like Blind Melon, Everclear, and SOJA and releasing two well received albums, “Two Tone Circles” 2004 and “Natural Mood” 2007, respectively. The latter was named as a top DIY (Do-It-Yourself) release by Performing Songwriter Magazine (Issue 107 – January/February 2008).
He stepped out as a solo artist in 2010, trading in the band’s roots-jam driven rock for a more acoustic soul/r&b songwriter approach. He has since released three solo albums, “Balance & Pull”, 2010, “Life Is Wonderful”, 2012 and “Power of a Woman”, 2014. His transition has led him to supporting slots for hit songwriters like Bleu and Darryl Worley, and has kept him busy on the road performing over 250 shows per year. Masi’s freshman solo record was released to noteworthy reviews, as well as significant radio airplay, charting in the top 200 college radio charts and being included on radio host, George Graham’s, Best Albums of the Year list. His follow up solo effort, “Life Is Wonderful”, gained additional support and was licensed for use on a number of TV networks (Discovery, MTV, Oxygen) and placed in online commercials, tutorials, E-books and game apps.
