Jason Masi, a DC based singer-songwriter, got his start with his college band, Jubeus, playing a residency at The Lighthouse Cafe’ and opening for bands like Blind Melon, Everclear, SOJA, and Donna the Buffalo.
Masi started playing as a solo artist in 2010. He has an established east coast following and enjoys making his full-time living performing music. He performs solo and with his band in intimate settings, ticketed club shows, festivals, and private events which keeps him busy playing more than 250 shows per year.
Masi cites influences that range from classic soul artists like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers to folk and blues icons like Van Morrison and James Taylor as well as modern songwriters in the vein of Mat Kearney, Damien Rice, and James Morrison. His songs are often reflective and thought-provoking, yet maintain a free spirited and lighthearted tone.
He approaches his music in much the same way he does life. His laid-back and easygoing personality translates into the lyrics and tone of his music while his performances are energetic and portray him as the hardworking musician he is. It's a contrast that suits Masi well, as he goes from connecting with new fans like they are old pals and catching up with longtime fans before he takes the stage for a lively and passionate set.
