Biography

Essentially a biography is to condense a life and/or instance into something manageable for others to comprehend.
So eschewing excess, JSK is a humble man in humble surroundings who lives and creates his art and records his music on the floor in his living room.
On occasions there is a chair.

Fellow artists he has found a common trust with are varying in their influence and come from the musical, theatrical and scholar.

Todd Rundgren, The Beatles, John Lennon,
Bill Hicks, Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Peter Singer, River Phoenix, Crispin Glover, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Harmony Korine, PT Anderson, Syd Barrett, John Frusciante, Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) among so many, have produced melodies, words and images that JSK holds dear.

Lyrics

YOU OF ALL PEOPLE

Written By: JSK (Jason Stuart Kamasz)

All instruments & Produced by JSK

taken from the album;

YOU OF ALL PEOPLE

last thing I said we were 'free to be'
and I'm here on the eve of history
I am packed I am booked and I'm on my flight
even destiny you have to fight

Cause someone left the gate open
for anyone to walk through
as if they know what's true
do they even know me or you?

WE!
YOU OF ALL PEOPLE
STAND!
ONE AS EQUAL
"press play"

see no sense in the need to deliniate
from the heart & the life itself we make
but all question; doubt will soon subside
when i touch the ground & souls reside

I'm coming home

Cause someone left the gate open
for anyone to walk through
as if they know what's true
do they even know me or you?

WE!
YOU OF ALL PEOPLE
STAND!
ONE AS EQUAL
"press play"

WE!
YOU OF ALL PEOPLE
STAND!
ONE AS EQUAL
"press play"

"press play"

ROLL UP

album
"You Of All People"

ROLL UP

Ladies....
....Gents it's time to place your bets
"Applause"
As the jockey breaks his neck

It's fun huh?
Waiting for your friends to fail?
Roll up
You havent seen the best bits yet

I feel that we are friends
HAD NO IDEA THE ONES LEFT
and you have my time well spent

"walk walk walk walking around"

Spare some
don't empty plate of yesterday
Dry run
Nobody has bought their tickets yet
Just calm down
It's a mirror hurts your eyes
keep them closed
and now await your little prize

I feel that we are friends - HAD NO IDEA THE ONES LEFT
and you have my time well spent - DON'T TAKE SHIT NO MATTER WHAT'S SAID

you're not alone now you never were
pick up the phone now and speak to her
you're not alone now you never were
go write the letter and send it on....

HOLD

album
"You Of All People"

HOLD

SOME PEOPLE LISTEN
AND HEAR TOO
OFFER THEMSELVES TO YOU

And we smile in this light
& live love with delight
Can I hold you?
Now?

LIFE IS NO PRISON
DON'T MAKE IT
JUST STAND TO ONE OF TWO SIDES

And we smile in this light
& live love with delight
Can I hold you?
Now?

If you
allow me to

PENDANT

Written By: Jason Stuart Kamasz

PENDANT

(produced and all instruments by Jason Stuart Kamasz)

one eye on the phone
the rest attached to a melody
I'm praying you'll arrive
alone
with me
without fail you are there
we laugh and feel this pendant bear
and we're in our home
we've always known

i don't know what to say
cos' everything is irrelevant anyway
i don't know what to do
cos' I'm in love with you

the colour turned to blue
you said it only did for you
a smile from a little girl
a mother's view

i don't know what to say
cos' everything is irrelevant anyway
i don't know what to do
cos' I'm in love with you

OURSPACE

NO IDEA
WHAT I'D FIND HERE
IF I FOUND ANYTHING AT ALL
COS' I WAS SHOCKED TO FIND
a-new-lifeline-
SEND A MESSAGE
POST A PICTURE
YOU COULD LEAVE ANYTHING BEHIND
BUT NEGATIVE THINGS CREPT IN
YOU TO HAD TO KEEP
your-eyes-peeled

Chorus
Cos we're tired of the mire
got together and got higher
than the mere
hemisphere
loneliness is not here
the human race
can live here in OurSpace

THIS TIME LAST YEAR
I STILL KNEW FEAR
AND MY BEST FRIEND WERE FOUR WALLS
now-i-see-out-the-window-

Cos we're tired of the mire
and got together and got higher
than the mere
hemisphere
loneliness is not here
the human race
can live here in OurSpace

Cos we're tired of the mire
and got together and got higher
than the mere
hemisphere
loneliness is not here
Cos the human race
can live in OurSpace
