By Nikki, 1039 The Planet, Grand Junction | We are thrilled to introduce you to our latest Colorado Grown artist Jason Abbott! We did a quick Q&A to help you get to know him a little better. [Denver people may recognize Jason from the band Swerve! He recently relocated to Grand Junction to be near family.]
What got you started in music?
My mom always had music on. Everything from oldies to classic rock to country. I auditioned for my first band when I was 20.
What are your musical goals?
To have fun and entertain people!
Are you a one man show? Writer, Producer, singer, songwriter, instruments?
I’ll be mostly performing solo with band tracks. I write from time to time and my goal is one good single per quarter.
How do you feel you’ve changed musically since your first song to the current music you’re working on?
I started out as a rock singer and [now] I’m primarily a country guy.
What is your favorite aspect of being a musician?
The connection I get to make with people and helping them forget about the day to day grind for awhile.
When you’re not playing music, what are you doing?
Spending time with my wife and son. Working. I own a production company. And I’m a water lover! You will find me at the lake as often as possible.
