International headline tours with Pitchshifter and varied studio sessions have helped shape Jason Bowld into one of the most popular, versatile drummers to come out of the U. K. .
Known for his dynamic drumming with U.K. rockers Pitchshifter over the last 9 years, Jason Bowld is a man of many talents. He has written, performed and produced his critically acclaimed side-project band - This is Menace (R.I.P. Nov 08') which features over 19 guest vocalists from bands such as Killing Joke, Hundred Reasons, Funeral for a Friend and Fightstar - Jason filled in for Fightstar on their 5 week U.K. tour in October 08 at short notice, learning their entire set in a morning.
He has also proven himself in other genres of music with his versatile style. His playing with EMF guitarist Ian Dench for cult singer Amanda Ghost has earned him respect from U2 and Depeche Mode producers Dave McCracken and Steve Fitzmaurice. Personal requests from Sony BMG to record drum parts for up and coming bands has further reinforced Jason's efficiency in the studio where he has been known to record drum parts for albums within three days. This positive work ethic is echoed further by other international producers that Jason has worked with such as Machine, Ulrich Wilde, Al Clay and Andy Sneap.
He continues to contribute for U.K. drumming magazine - Rhythm and performs regular drum clinics to pass on his 'musical approach' to drumming.
