You may know Jason Ringenberg for his band known to have “singlehandedly rewrote the history of rock ’n roll in the South” according to Rolling Stone.
Jason & The Scorchers have the instinctive ability to combine traditional country music with high-energy punk rock has not been surpassed to this day. In 2008, they were honored with the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance. Since then, the “Godfather of Americana” (Mojo) has released five solo albums, with everyone from the BBC to USA Today lauding his songwriting. Jason’s high octane one-man show prompted The Times (UK) to call him, “one of the most exciting performers of his generation.” His new album - “STAND TALL” - was written while participating in the Artist in Residence Program for the National Park Service at Sequoia National Park. It is not hard to imagine him writing songs whilst climbing a 10,000 foot Sierra Nevada mountain! That restless spirit will not be stilled. “Jason Ringenberg is Nashville’s most electrifying performer, but his most enduring attribute, his songwriting, is also his most criminally overlooked.” (USA TODAY)
