Jason Price, Artist of the Week
Runs Aug. 22-26th.
Jason Price is a performing singer/songwriter from Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. Jason’s “True Roots” brand of Country Music brings the flavour of current country with hints and honest tones of classic country music.
Jason bought a second hand guitar in December of 2011 to teach his kids a life lesson that if you stick to what you start, you will get better, and it will reward you in many ways.
In less than a year, Jason played his first live public performance, wrote his first song, performed in a sold out soft seater show put on by a local promoter, and made his television debut on CTV’s Christmas Daddies.
Jason followed that up in year two by hosting a weekly acoustic open mic where he continued honing his skills as a performing songwriter. He became the front man of his own band, and began to amass a local fan base in multiple venues and festivals. In addition, he began working with a local music producer and publisher to start planning and preparing his music for a Nashville produced CD.
In May of 2015, Jason recorded his debut CD, “Grit, Guts and Country Pride” at Oceanway and OMNI Studios in Nashville, TN with some of Nashville’s finest musicians. As the road to CCMA week approached in Halifax, NS, Jason showcased his song writing abilities in a Songwriters Circle hosted by Michelle Wright. Jason released his CD in August, and followed it up with a very busy CCMA week, with support of his new label Song City Canada. Jason also earned a showcase opportunity from Music Nova Scotia at Music Nova Scotia Week.
As of late, Jason has been actively playing inter-provincially, and on 29 Feb 16, he released his debut single “Pour Favor” from the album through CCMA Hall of Fame member Mr. Paul Kennedy.
It is Jason’s baritone voice, his easy going demeanour, and a confident stage presence that immediately captivates his audience.
Jason played at the Main Event on Aug. 19th and at the Doryman in Cheticamp on Aug. 20th . You can also see him on Aug 26 & 27th at White Point Beach Resort, South Shore, NS
