Jason is a senior who is returning for a second year as a finalist in Teen Star Santa Barbara. He has had an exciting year! Jason is a member of the 2012 Santa Barbara Youth Battle’s “Most Original Band,” Misfit Toys. Misfit Toys recently recorded their first EP entitled Eastern Skies at Playback Recording Studios with Tucker Boden. Jason also won a talent show singing with Emily Libera and had the privilege of opening for Switchfoot here at the Granada for the Kids Helping Kids Concert. Recent theater roles at San Marcos High School include Bill Calhoun in Kiss Me, Kate and Jimmy in Thoroughly Modern Millie (which will open May 2nd). In his spare time, Jason enjoys sunset surf sessions, playing the guitar and piano, writing music, recording music in his garage, listening to weird types of music, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and most of all, singing. Jason was accepted to Berklee College of Music in Boston where he will study music performance this fall. He hopes to make it in the music industry as a professional musician, and someday, to have his own record label and find young talent. Jason would like to thank his friends for coming to support him tonight, his voice teacher, Stacie Anthes, for helping him get his songs together, his family for always pushing him to be his best self, and, of course, Teen Star Santa Barbara!
