Since the John Denver classic Annie’s Song launched him as a contestant on the X Factor in 2012, Jason has planned for this album. His pop, the much-loved patriarch of his family asked him to do a tribute album. With his pop’s health on the decline and the 20th anniversary of the legend’s passing, Jason knew there was no better time for this album.
The album is packed with songs that made John Denver a household name including Annie’s Song, Take Me Home. Jason’s exceptional vocals shine on the album perfectly capturing the soul of Denver’s music.
Born in the small town of Albert 150 kilometres west of Dubbo, Jason was raised on country music. As runner up X Factor in 2012 he has continued to grow into a genuine country artist. A national tour with Amber Lawrence, an appearance by Indigenous entertainer Christine Anu on his single Proud and his nomination for New Oz Artist of the Year at the 2017 CMC Awards have cemented his place in the industry he loves. The year continues with the release of his John Denver tribute album and trialling for the Australian clay trap shooting team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
