Jason Edwards

"The Comeback Kid"

     “Real Music from the pages of real life”. That is how many have described the music of Singer/Songwriter Jason Edwards. There's no question that Some parts of Jason's story touch on the darker themes of a troubled life. But that alone doesn't begin to tell the complete story of Jason Edwards. Much of Jason's music is grounded in hope and faith. Some would call it the “good and bad” or “the dark vs the light” , but like many great songwriters and storytellers before him, Jason isn't afraid to use his own life and experiences to draw from in his music.  Jason says “ for me music is as essential as food, water, and oxygen. Music is at the very center of who I am.” 

     Known by many as “The Comeback Kid”, or “CBK” which is a nickname given to him in 2008, by friends and former band mates following a near brush with death. Overcoming adversity is a common theme in his lyrics. Edwards says “in most cases my songs come straight from the pages of real life. Most of my music is based on events or circumstances I have lived through, or someone I know has gone through." It has been said that “art imitates life”, and For Jason Edwards that is a fact.  He says “for me, I draw from life. From the good and from the not so good. Because with music, even the most painful stories or circumstances we go through can sound so beautiful with the right melody. That's a powerful thing.”
