Jason Scavone: Indie Part 2 (S2 | E79)
The reaction to Part 1 of the LTNF interview with Jason Scavone has been exceptional. And I think that is representative of our reaction to our general need to get back to business in music and the arts post-pandemic. So many artists went through a reckoning in 2020/21. “Am I still relevant? Does the world need what I do?” Jason’s work answers those questions. His singles “Old Friend” and “Screens” paint a picture of the pains of a changing world. These pieces are apropos to the time we live in.
In this episode we finish the conversation about Foxwarren and then pay tribute to Nick Drake with two poignant selections (Pink Moon, Riverman). And we have four tracks from The Noises Ten. Jason adds in some Meshell Ndegeocello. I added two tracks from upcoming shows by Hope Griffin and Brittany Danielle.
Lots of music and insights with week’s Lester the Nightfly guest, Jason Scavone.
About Jason Scavone
With an undeniable gift for songwriting that illuminates the joyous, mundane and oftentimes bewildering experiences of life, North Carolina based singer, songwriter and producer Jason Scavone has developed a unique sound that transcends traditional genre barriers, delivering a unique musical thumbprint that seamlessly melds the best of indie, pop, americana and rock.
Early in his career, Jason served as frontman and songwriter for indie rock band, The Noises 10. During this time the band signed to two major label deals, recorded with and mentored under super producer Eric Valentine; and performed with such acts as Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, Derek Trucks Band, and 30 Seconds To Mars. Jason’s music has been featured in television shows including One Tree Hill and Criminal Minds in addition to the 2019 documentary Valiant. In 2008 Jason recorded a duet of his song “My Repair” with Brandi Carlile which was included on a Universal Music Group Compilation album.
Jason’s latest soon to be released album, produced by Jason himself, mixed by Tom Schick at Wilco’s studio in Chicago and mastered by Bob Ludwig was written during the midst of the pandemic as he reevaluated his relationship with music and reflected on the uncertain future we faced individually and as a society. The first single, Old Friend is set to be released Spring 2022.
