Known for his powerful drumming with Metal supergroup Axewound and industrial legends Pitchshifter, Jason has toured the world from club level to Stadium level - and continues to do so with various artists. After a sudden stand-in for Fightstar, in December 2010, Jason was asked to stand in - with literally days to spare for Bullet for my Valentine's U.K. headline Arena tour - with no rehearsals! It was this opportunity - duly taken - that spawned the Metal supergroup Axewound with Bullet singer Matt Tuck, Liam Cormier (Cancer Bats), Joe Copcutt (Rise to Remain) and Mike Kingswood (Glamour of the kill).
Jason has toured and recorded with the likes of Killing Joke, Bill Bailey ('In Metal' album) and Pop will eat itself to name a few, and he also records drums remotely for commercial ventures such as video games (Grid 2, Forumla 1 2012, Halo) and T.V. commercials.
Jason has worked with such as Colin Richardson, Carl Bown, Machine, Ulrich Wilde, Al Clay, Andy Sneap, Romesh Dodangoda and Sterling Winfield. On the drum clinic front, Jason has great experience playing and teaching at most of the main drum festivals from Drumfest, Drummer live to Frankfurt Musicmesse and UDE. His passion for education is further backed up by his tuition column in Rhythm magazine and contributions for the latest Rockschool syllabus of which he has written and performed tracks for.
In 2014, Jason was asked to sample drums and provide midi song packs for a flagship Toontrack release entitled 'Made of Metal'. The product has since proved a huge success and was recorded and mixed under the watchful eye of Slipknot/ Machinehead producer Colin Richardson.
At present, Jason continues to stand-in for Killing Joke & Bullet for my Valentine and also tours with Pop will eat itself. He is also writing sync music for various companies and has a side-project called Unearth the Kings.
