Jason Ager



Biography

Jason Ager is a blues/rock artist with hip-hop and R&B influences.  Jason's self-taught guitar style has a unique ring, stylized palm muting and percussive string-striking being distinctive markers of his sound.  He is a favorite not only in his local Philadelphia music scene (playing at venues from the Grape Street and Tin Angel to the Puck and the World Café Live) but also frequently appears on stages in the New Jersey, New York, and Washington DC music scenes. Jason is also quite at home in a band setting, originally performing as the front-man of his own blues, power trio, affectionately known as the C.O.P.O.  Venturing recently into the singer-songwriter realm, Jason seeks to reach ever-new audiences with his upbeat acoustic music, breaking the traditional mold of the singer-songwriter classification.  Jason Ager and the C.O.P.O. will be releasing their first album, "Lunchdate," early Winter 2010, featuring both acoustic and full band tracks.
