Born and raised in northern New Jersey, Jason Erie has spent over ten years fronting multiple bands with numerous stints on the road. After five years fronting NY-based rock band Waking Up East, Jason decided to take a break from music altogether. In 2016, after a four-year hiatus, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, newborn son, and his well-worn notebook, brimming with new material ready to be heard.
Northern Americana at its core, with explosions of unhinged emotion, Jason Erie’s sound paints a grimly beautiful picture of suburbanite America in decay. Reminiscent of early Springsteen, his music shines a redemptive light on the shadowed characters living in every corner of the country. With songs composed in a marriage of structure and chaos, Jason Erie mashes Americana storytelling with the punk-rock edge he grew up on. What results is his truly unique style.
