He now lives 7 miles West of Plentywood when he is not on tour, and is surrounded by the inspiration for his music: the hardworking folks and rugged landscape that belong to Eastern Montana. Blessed with a superb voice, Jason began his singing career while attending Carroll, and soon began to play sold-out engagements in the Helena area, including an acclaimed concert at the Myrna Loy Center. Having received favorable coverage by the Montana media, he performed across the State of Montana the following summer. In 2004, Jason embarked on musical adventures spanning from Canada to North Carolina. He has entertained at colleges and county fairs throughout the West and MidWest and will be playing down South this spring. Jason has produced a 14-song CD of original music, entitled "The Country Way," which sold out by the hundreds upon its release.
Asked about his music, he puts it simply: "It's people and places that inspire me. There are things I cannot leave unsaid or unsung." In 2004, he recorded and released a new album of originals entitled "Ten Miles 2 Go." When asked about the success of this CD, Jason smilingly said, "Well it hasn�t gone platinum yet, but it�s gone aluminum." It's all about "Livin,' Lovin,' and Leavin'" as Jason blends traditional country with his own new sound. With a back home feeling and a natural stage presence, Jason's music and personality draw in the crowd for a rollicking good time. Whether country fan or not, you will be amazed by the song and show of Jason DeShaw.
