Jason Green

Jason Green was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1973. He began playing guitar at the age of 15 and was immediately bitten by the blues and jazz bug. By the time he was 17, he was already playing professionally in local clubs, with guys more than twice his age.

After a few years in college studying music theory and composition, Jason decided that his education would be better achieved learning the business in bar rooms and through meeting elder jazz and blues men. It is a decision he does not regret. At 21 he decided to make music a full-time career and has been at it ever since.

In 1995, Jason joined the JIMMY LEY blues band(former piano/harp player and bandleader for Robert Lockwood Jr.) and for 4 years toured both regionally and nationally, as well as recording several Cd's with Jimmy for SLIPPERY NOODLE RECORDS (an Indianapolis blues label).

”...electric guitarist Jason Green pretty much blew everyone away with a florid but self-effacing display of chops, spitting out howling blues choruses, B.B. King-ish single string runs, rich, jump blues chordings, and some jazzy interludes... “ REVIEW AT EAST COAST BLUES AND ROOTS FESTIVAL BYRON BAY, AUSTRALIA 2002

East Coast Blues & Roots Festival...RED HOT BLUES AND GREENS

”My favourites of the festival included the fabulous Buddy Guy, Tommy Castro, Patty Larkin and Guy Davis, but there were many fine players. Jason Green, guitarist with Big Jack Johnson, was red hot and Luka Bloom was very special. Guy Davis really was the real brass nuts.” - Steve Baker “BARFLY” Magazine Australia

“Jason Green plays “Little Blue Cart Blues” and let me tell you something. This Ohio boy shows off some guitar picking that is outstanding. Jason Green could easily play in the blues club near you. This song may be the best display of instrumentation on an album that is loaded with good musicians.”


“Blues guitarist Jason Green makes the most of his single track, “Little Blue Cart Blues”, by showing off a sense of depth and playfulness in the three minute piece.”

- Adam Besenyodi POP MATTERS Magazine

”For every up-tempo, exciting blues guitarist (Jason Green) that moves our feet... allowing Green's ecstatic playing to segue into Thomas Bailey's old-time folk number...”

-Justin Cober-Lake STYLUS MAGAZINE

“...perhaps you might prefer Jason Green's accomplished blues and jazz guitar chops, which you can imagine echoing nicely down there.”
