I came across Jason Silver this morning, via a couple of sites and was quite impressed by his sound and his songs.
Here he is working on "A runaway train". I wanted to use the video he has on LastFM, but as usual their HTML is beyond me. Blogger doesn't seem to like it.
So if you get the time check out his video for Lost on LastFM.
Jason Silver is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, specializing in piano, but also skilled in guitar, bass, drums, and other instruments. He's been a full-time professional musician since 1993, working with a range of highly-regarded studio session players, Canadian artists like Johnannes Linstead and Night Sun, Broadway musicians in New York city, and even arranged and written music for the Kingston Symphony Orchestra, in Kingston, Ontario.
Jason was influenced as a child by the musihttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifc of his parents; bands like Blood, Sweat and Tears, Harry Chapin, and Tom T. Hall. He continued to grow musically as a young man by listening to Billy Joel, Simon & Garfunkle, The Eagles, Chicago, and tacky, eighties synth-pop groups.
