Biography

Abbey Road Studios recently propelled a happy man out its historic doors. In the man’s hands lays a still-warm master of his latest release, an EP entitled hollow. As a red double-decker bus roars by his contented face, singer/songwriter Jason Hausman finds himself standing in magical company. Musicians the likes of John Lennon, Dave Brubeck, and Radiohead also stood on those same English steps with the same burning question: what’s next?

From the sprawling fields of Indiana to the rich red clay of North Carolina, Jason Hausman rises to the forefront with intricate lyric, haunting voice, and relevant art. Hausman is a master craftsman, taking great care to dig past the surfaces of everyday things to find the warm musical embers underneath. His guitar-driven songs are described as “beautiful,” “deliciously gritty,” and “haunting.” Hausman’s gift has come through incredible experience as a young musician, playing with the likes of Ben Folds Five, Herbie Mann, Athenaeum, and Blessid Union of Souls. Having formed and fronted numerous collectives of talent such as Blue Mongoose, The Hausman Syndicate (under Rockduster Records), Lovehaus, and Godmanradio, he has earned a place of respect in the grand span of musical performance. His latest release, hollow, is a powerful blend of innovative sounds and classic songwriting.

Jason Hausman currently lives, works, and writes in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the General Manager of an established recording studio and is also a skilled recording engineer/composer. Widely known in the local scene, he continues his unyielding foray into the world of music. He recently expanded his publishing/record label Orpheus Arts with another local musician and engineer to include a Film Scoring/Commercial Music division. Within one month, Orpheus Arts landed contracts to compose music for both national and regional advertising clients, and are scheduled to compose an independent film score in early 2004.

Never satisfied, Hausman’s thirst for his art only grows. Another new CD (Grey Sky Sparrow) is coming together under the production of Orpheus Arts and will showcase the beauty of his unpretentious songwriting, sharpened to its finest point. With a brilliant array of seasoned musicians to add color to the canvas, Hausman’s upcoming work is sure to be his finest offering yet, penning songs that are full to the brim with his sonic agility.

As he walks down Abbey Road, he smiles. The CD hollow, produced by Hausman and Chris Garges and mastered by Abbey Road Studios Chris Blair (Travis, Radiohead, Sting) is finally ready to meet the world.

Jason’s contributions to the world of music have only begun. Whether he is composing a film score, writing lyrics on scrap paper, or stunning audiences with breathtaking musical performances – his music is worthy of a listen. Hailed by the Terre Haute Tribune Star as “the area’s best songwriter” and Charlotte’s Creative Loafing as “an atom blast,” Hausman defines his own musical style and continues to elegantly extract love, beauty, and insight from life experience and offer it to whomever will listen.
