ジャンル:フォーク, カントリー - オルタナティブ, ポップ - アダルトコンテンポラリー
経歴: The ingredients behind northern New England’s Jason Spooner Trio
read like a bizarre musical science experiment. Start with a prolific,
singer/songwriter (Jason Spooner) with heavy roots, folk & blues
influences. Then mix in a classicly-trained bassist (Adam Frederick)
with foundations in jazz and a knack for serious pocket grooves. Lastly,
shake things up with a rock-solid drummer (Reed Chambers) with
deep-seeded roots in funk, soul & reggae and you’ve begun to scratch
the surface of this unique, energetic band.

In recent news, Jason won the 2007 Mountain Stage NewSong
contest international finals at the South Street Sea Port in New York
City. He was also a national finalist in the 2007 Starbucks Music Makers
Competition. He toured the East Coast in the Spring of 2006 as part
of the Emerging Artist Showcase at the 2005 Falcon Ridge Folk
Festival in Hillsdale, NY. Jason was chosen as a 2006 New Folk Finalist
for the renowned Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, TX. Jason’s song “Big
Black Hole” won him the title of Songwriter of the year at the Ossippee

Valley Bluegrass Festival in 2005. He was a finalist in the

prestigious 2004 John Lennon Songwriting Competition which

receives over 10,000 entrants world-wide each year. Other highlights

include Jason’s song “Pickup Truck” airing on NPR’s “Car Talk”
radio program and the recent taping of an episode of
“FoodNation with Bobby Flay” on the Food Network which

featured song clips & performances by Jason and his band
throughout the episode. On a more regional level, Jason has either won
or has been nomintated for the “Best Singer/Songwriter” title in the
Portland Phoenix’s annual “Best Music Poll” issue for the last 5 years.
The band’s sound is a unique blend of roots, folk and blues
focused around Jason’s tastefully rhythmic flat-picking style
and the band’s air-tight foundation. With laid-back vocals and
an emotive, image-rich writing style all his own, Jason is a

vsongwriter to watch. Think J.J. Cale meets Neil Young meets

G. Love with dashes of Paul Simon and Kelly Joe Phelps.

Sound bizarre? Hearing is believing.
