Did you notice the top of the website was moving and being drawn?… That’s one of the many Art Music Videos that were made for my latest Album, The Best We Can. If you check back on it, it’s further along. Or you can watch an art music video, complete with music! Check out a handful below, and visit my YouTube channel to see them all. It’s a unique way to experience music!
Crawling To You: one of my favorites from my album, The Best We Can. It has a similar theme to many of my songs – recognizing my weakness and deep need for God’s strength and mercy.
Dream: along with being the lead track on The Best We Can, it’s also the most guaranteed to get your head bobbin. It’s got a classic 90’s hip hop style drum beat, and the electric piano makes me feel like I’m on a cloud… Or maybe… In a DREAM!
I love being outside, and feel fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places. This was taken about 20 mins from where I live, just outside of Auburn, California.
Shoutout to my man David Thuman! Amazing photographer!
Ever More is my first music album. At the time of release in November 2019, I had been making music for 10+ years. I hadn’t released music because I was crippled by fear: fear of judgement, fear of failure, and the biggest fear of them all – the fear of being myself… A lot has changed since releasing this album!
Since up-and-moving with my wife to California in 2014 with no plan, no jobs lined up, no real clue of what we were going to do, I’ve regularly beat my “most uncomfortable” life moments… Filming Ever More (my first music video) is probably still at the top of my list.
We filmed this video at Grouse Ridge in Northern California (the trail head is 1.5 hrs from my house). An old high school friend from NW Arkansas (gotta represent Bentonville haha!) happened to be in the Bay Area doing videography for musicians. It was awesome to connect with him and shoot this video. What an experience of stepping outside of your comfort zone… It’s true that what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.
Hi I’m Jason. I’m an entrepreneur and musician in Auburn CA. (Watching the above video is a good way to learn about me.)
Releasing my music was the HARDEST thing I’ve ever done! Why? Because it required overcoming fear – fear of judgement, fear of failure, fear of rejection. But you know what, all those fears boil down to the BIGGEST FEAR of them all… The fear of being myself…
I know I’m not alone in this struggle, and that is why I seek to inspire others to OVERCOME that fear! In overcoming fears and rising from brokenness, we find purpose. Aren’t we all looking for purpose in our life?
Living a life of purpose requires two things (one easy and one hard):
Recognizing your dreams and passions – we all know deep down our true passions and dreams, but we often don’t vocalize them or cover them up for so long they’re dusty; I know I did!
Pursuing your dreams and passions – this is the hard one, because it requires casting aside fear (often-times fear that has been crippling us a long time)
In a fearless pursuit of our passions we find PURPOSE, and we’re all looking for that… A life filled with purpose… Joy… Meaning… Lives filled with love.
Here is a question that I started asking myself every morning, and it has changed the course of my life: what is my next ACTION in pursuit of my passion?
Write this down EVERY DAY!! I promise it will change your life…
If you have a dream… If you have a passion… Please strongly consider acting on it. I believe in a God that blesses EACH OF US with unique gifts and passions, and that we’re meant to act on those.
So write down that next action (no matter how small), and go do it! Hundreds of baby steps go a long way…
What you’ve just read is, basically, what you can expect if you connect with me. I’m a regular guy, married to love of my life, a dog-father (no kids yet) and am active in my local community. I’m on a journey (maybe more of a race!) of living a life filled with purpose and meaning, and I want to inspire others to join with me.
Please subscribe to my YouTube channel here. It’s the best way to connect with me.
I’ll be sharing new music, videos to uplift and inspire, interviewing friends/mentors I’ve met through my experiences, and other good stuff to lift the hearts of whoever will listen.
If you’ve made it this far then you surely won’t mind if I close with a blessing, because let’s face, we can all use a blessing…
May God BLESS YOU, and keep you, and make His face SHINE upon you, and in all your ways. Go and BE GREAT!
Important note: here are a few verses that inspired me to make major life changes, and continue to change my heart: 1 Peter 4:10, Mark 10:45, 1 Corinthians 10:31. As these soaked into my daily thoughts, my life started changing. I started saying what I needed to say, doing what I needed to do, and living a life that was true to myself and the gifts I’ve been given.
