"The air is fresh up here I'll say, I can do anything, it's a view on a clear day."- Jason Shand sings on 'X-Factor', one of his songs from his soon to be released debut full length CD 'Because of Zeeva'. Those lines carry a lot of weight for the singer songwriter who had spent the better part of a decade underground finding his own individual style and sound.

Having fronted an alternative rock band in Boston leading to a short lived record deal with British indy label Freestyle Recordings (a BMG subsidiary), Jason made a conscious decision to leave the band and Boston to pursue a solo career in his hometown of NYC. This pursuit and the finding of his sonic palate has been a long road traveled.

Jason's sound is a unique brand of progressive/adult contemporary pop: a musical concoction that draws from the 80s, 90s, the present, and beyond.

'Crumble' is the official lead single off 'Because of Zeeva' due in summer 2013. The 'Crumble' video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfiyjfmzvBo) puts under the microscope the singer's love/hate relationship with his hometown and specifically zeroes in on NYC's subway culture.

Jason's many influences include Peter Gabriel, Dido, Seal, Annie Lennox, Coldplay, Crowded House, Radiohead, NLX, and U2 amongst others.
