Biography

While the name may be new to fans of Christian music, Jason Watson is no stranger to the sounds of praise that he has grown up singing. The youngest of three children, Jason began singing Christian music at a very young age. His fondest memories include those times when the family gathered together harmonizing to the accompaniment of his father on ukulele. It was from these experiences that Jason recognized God was calling him to minister through a life of music.

At the age of 16, Jason began writing his own music. His songs have spanned a large portion of the music spectrum, including samplings from the genres of country, contemporary, pop, punk rock, classic rock, and classical. Through this early time of personal musical growth, he also nurtured his talents on both the guitar and piano. His vocal instruction has roots at Central Missouri State University, where he was a vocal music education major for four years.

Jason Watson has been performing Christian music professionally since 1998, leading worship at several different churches and playing for various church functions. He has played a variety of styles of Christian music with many different groups over the years. His most committed endeavor has been with the praise and worship band Cross Section, for which he has been “front man” for the last five years. Jason has traveled with this group to provide ministry at many churches in the Kansas City area and beyond. Now Jason is stepping out with his solo career, trusting God to lead him in his passion of reaching others for Jesus.

As important as his music ministry is to him, Jason Watson’s family is where his heart truly lies. He and his wife Lori have been married since 1996 and have been blessed with two wonderful children, Ben (age 5) and Megan (age 1). Jason and Lori share a passion for youth and have been youth pastors at their local congregation since shortly after they were married. Jason’s natural energy and enthusiasm have made him an effective youth leader and mentor.

Whether it’s from his home congregation, his family, his dearly devoted fans, or his Lord, Jason Watson has been blessed to receive more support, love, and encouragement then he could ever have imagined in sharing his music.
