Jason draws inspiration for much of his original music from West Virginia’s people, culture and mountainous landscape. Some of his influences, such as Hasil Adkins, Jesco White and Bill Withers, likewise hail from West Virginia. Nevertheless, Jason has a diverse variety of influences that run the gamut from Skip James to Tiny Tim, Jimmie Rodgers to AC/DC, and Shock G to Daniel Johnston.
