Jason Walker moved to Nashville in 2005 to pursue music and promptly signed an exclusive songwriting deal with Word Music Publishing in January of 2007. The following years brought new outlets for his talents in songwriting, earning him top honors and continued imprints on many artist releases with the Word team.
Alongside his years of songwriting, Jason released multiple solo projects under the Word/Warner banner. These songs lead to features on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, MTV and VH1. His song ‘Down’ reached the national spotlight in 2009, when it was featured in Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries. It has gone on to sell over 130,000 copies, earning over 16 million streams on Spotify and nearly 40 million plays on Pandora. ‘Down’ also took a spot on the Vampire Diaries season 1 soundtrack.
Jason released three EP’s between 2009 and 2013. His songs warranted features on ABC hit Private Practice and Fox’s Bones. Vampire Diaries picked up ‘Echo’ for their third season on the CW. Jason was making a name for himself amongst the fans as they grew familiar with his haunting melodies and relatable lyrics.
With a dream to venture to California’s music scene, Jason and his wife moved to Santa Monica, CA in 2013 to explore and dive into the industry for a year. California brought a new energy to Jason’s style of writing and surrounded him with inspiring talent.
With the new inspiration and change of scenery, a new genre of music opened up in 2014, as he began his artist features with DJ Antione Vs. Mad Mark, Michael Woods, ‘Bisbetic and ‘Canyons’ and Volt & State.
His side project, The Swing, has warranted attention for upcoming ad campaigns.
Jason recently finished a new EP, set to release February 17th.
