With his second full-length album–SWEET SACRIFICE, out digitally in March–Jason is ready to share his exceptional and constantly evolving musical talent with the world. Sweet Sacrifice is a 14-song musical color wheel, showcasing an astounding diversity of songwriting and instrumental range, from the tender lead single, “The Stars Above,” co-written with Jason’s 15 year-old guitar student Michael Bar-Lavi, to the guitar-heavy, driving up-tempo opener “Aggravated,” the orchestrated strings and experimental guitars of “God Bless The Aliens,” and the drunken, New Orleans horns-heavy dirge that is “Government Blues.” The album is also complemented by Jason’s interpretations of two songs close to his heart: Lou Reed’s “Pale Blue Eyes” and Tom Waits’ “Hold On.”

Complimenting Jason’s extraordinary songwriting and performances, Sweet Sacrifice features some of the most talented young musicians anywhere in the world. Concord Records recording artist Jon Irabagon plays saxophone on several tracks, Jason Loughlin (Amos Lee, Nellie McKay) joins Jason on guitar, Dan Carlisle on bass, former Uprising band member Andrew Bain plays drums, Matt Kanelos contributed his impressive piano skills and a host of other musicians round out this enormous album.
