Jason Masi Live at North Gate Vineyard

Jason Masi is an American/DC based singer-songwriter.  He got his start with Richmond, VA based group, Jubeus, opening for acts like Blind Melon, Everclear, and SOJA and releasing two well received albums, “Two Tone Circles” 2004 and “Natural Mood” 2007, respectively.  The latter was named as a top DIY (Do-It-Yourself) release by Performing Songwriter Magazine (Issue 107 – January/February 2008).

He stepped out as a solo artist in 2010, trading in the band’s roots-jam driven rock for a more acoustic soul/r&b songwriter approach.  He has since released three solo albums, “Balance & Pull”, 2010, “Life Is Wonderful”, 2012 and “Power of a Woman”, 2014. His transition has led him to supporting slots for hit songwriters like Bleu and Darryl Worley, and has kept him busy on the road performing over 250 shows per year.    Masi’s freshman solo record was released to noteworthy reviews, as well as significant radio airplay, charting in the top 200 college radio charts and being included on radio host, George Graham’s, Best Albums of the Year list.  His follow up solo effort, “Life Is Wonderful”, gained additional support and was licensed for use on a number of TV networks (Discovery, MTV, Oxygen) and placed in online commercials, tutorials, E-books and game apps.

Masi cites influences that range from soul artists like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers, folk and blues icons like Van Morrison and James Taylor as well as modern songwriters in the vein of Mat Kearney, Damien Rice and James Morrison. His songs are often reflective and thought provoking, yet maintain a free spirited and light hearted tone. Masi’s songwriting explores the complexity of love and compromise from a unique, but relatable perspective.

He approaches his music in much the same way he does life. His laid back and easy going personality translates into the lyrics and tone of his music yet his performances are energetic and portray him as the hardworking musician he is.   It’s a contrast that suits Masi well, as he goes from hobnobbing with his new fans like they are old pals, and catching up with longtime fans before he takes the stage for an energetic and
passionate set.

Masi’s latest record, “Power Of A Woman”, released in October 2014, is smart, sexy, charming and reflective.  The approach revisits much of the soulful pop sensibility of prior releases, but brings a fresh clarity and edginess to his next collection of heartfelt tunes.  The tone and style of the album explores various genres, but maintains the honesty and focus that defines Masi’s sound.

Masi is currently in the studio working with producer, Mark Williams, of Sucker Punch Recording Company in Bethesda MD for a release slated for 2018.
