Jason James has been one of the most popular pianist/vocalist entertainers in the Houston area for the last 45 years. A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Jason has performed in a variety of venues in Houston's night-life scene.
As a young man, Jason began playing in clubs at the age of 16. His talents have taken him from the stages of London to Las Vegas. In all, he has performed in 45 states and over 20 foreign countries.
Jason has become the top soloist and one-man show in Houston. While most pianists specialize in one type of music, Jason's specialty is variety. Considered by many to be the most versatile entertainer in the area, Jason can deliver exciting piano renditions of his own original songs, to movie themes and Broadway show tunes or swing with some of the best music from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Michael Buble and Tony Bennett to name a few. His singing of the soulful music of the 60's and 70's, and timeless romantic ballads, ensure that audiences will return to hear him again and again. He is very charismatic and his love for the art shines above all else.
Some of his most popular requests are his own original piano themes. These compositions are featured on two of his three, available CDs. “Affairs of the Heart,” (1996) and “Into the Light,” (2004). He has a third, (all vocal) CD, titled, “Moondancer,” (2004) featuring romantic ballads and some of the music of Frank Sinatra. Jason arranged, orchestrated, performed and produced all of the songs on the CDs.
His live performances, which features a repertoire of over 4,000 songs, are enhanced by fully-orchestrated backgrounds which he arranges and records in a digital recording studio in his home. It is this 3- dimensional sound that makes him truly unique to his audiences.
Jason is currently performing at various venues in the Houston, Texas area. You will find his schedule listed on this web sight.
