Jason Wells Bio
Jason Wells dove into music at a very young age. He started banging on the piano at age two, and gradually rose to become an extremely mediocre player by the time he was 14 years old. During his high school years, dedication was redirected to a different instrument: the guitar. It was more forgiving, more portable and brown (all good qualities).
As he became more comfortable with his voice and his musical abilities improved, Jason began showing up in public with his instrument, eager to entertain. He drove a dusty, white 1977 Volkswagen Rabbit, and wired the hatchback flaps so that home stereo speakers (discovered in his parent's basement) could be placed on the ground and plugged directly into his car. A very primitive amp and cheap microphone was added to the mix to create an ambience that couldn't be matched. And if it could have been, nobody really wanted to.
It was obvious listening to his first song, which was written when he was 16 years old, that he spent a great deal of time listening to The Doors. In fact, most nights, if you looked hard enough, you could find him cruising backroads, sporting his Lennon-esque sunglasses with his head wired to his headphones, pumping Jim Morrison directly into his brain.
With years of experience and an overwhelming amount of original material (almost thirty songs [yes, we're talkin' THIRTY]), you'll be sure to find Jason's sound both interesting and appealing. His songs have been compared to The Doors, Nirvana and Radiohead; along with The Beatles, these bands have all been an influence.
A fan of Wells has dubbed his sound an "alternative version of The Doors." That's about as good of a description as any.
Jason usually performs acoustically, choosing either small, intimate venues, or busy walkways on the streets of downtown areas. Most nights, if you look hard enough, you'll find him, sporting his Lennon-esque sunglasses, wailing on his guitar and singing at the top of his lungs.
"When you get a chance, listen to some stuff. It makes me feel good about myself."
