Jason Masi s a well-known local singer-songwriter who got his start with Richmond, VA-based group, Jubeus, opening for acts like Blind Melon, Everclear, and SOJA and releasing two well received albums, “Two Tone Circles” in 2004 and “Natural Mood” in 2007. He stepped out as a solo artist in 2010, trading in the band’s roots-jam driven Rock for a more acoustic Soul/R&B songwriter approach. He has since released three solo albums, “Balance & Pull”, 2010, “Life Is Wonderful”, 2012 and “Power of a Woman”, 2014. His transition has led him to supporting slots for hit songwriters like Bleu and Darryl Worley, and has kept him busy on the road performing over 250 shows per year. Masi cites influences that range from soul artists like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers, 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 light-hearted tone. Masi’s songwriting explores the complexity of love and compromise from a unique, but relatable perspective.
