Jan 23 - Jason Conley

Originally from West Virginia, Jason Conley is an exceptional songwriter and an even more talented musician.  

Hailing from a long line of gospel musicians and back porch bluegrass players, Jason started playing guitar at age 11. Later, Jason began singing along with his guitar riffs, which were impressions of his father’s versions of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, the Carter Family and the Stanley Brothers with some Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs influences in the mix. Today Jason’s performances draw from over 200 original songs.

 

"CONLEY BRINGS A TRUE GIFT TO THIS LIFETIME AS HE SHARES ORIGINAL MATERIAL WITH A SOUND THAT IS SO NOSTALGIC AND HAUNTING, THAT IT CAN MAKE YOU CRY THROUGH ONE SONG AND LEAP TO THE DANCE FLOOR ON THE NEXT." 

 

Jason tributes an old primitive Baptist church for one of the most moving music experiences he’s ever felt.  Jason recalls sitting in an old primitive Baptist church as a child, with his mother. " It’s all vocal harmony and the first time you hear that sound it’s like someone is letting you hear their deepest feeling- that they rearly show. The sound is something so sacred that it seems like you should not be allowed to hear it at all. It was the purest raw emotion that I have ever heard. That solid root of the Stanley brothers sound in that church leaves your hair standing up and can almost always make you cry."

At 23, Jason was playing in West Palm Beach Florida, where he went to audition for a management company and was approached by a Sony/ATV Publishing representative who insisted on him moving to Nashville to better his chances in the music scene. “Nashville was a definite turning point in my life and songwriting forever more, “ Conley explains. “ Being there was like a living in a mirror ball: the streets, venues and clubs are full of people trying to write a hit song and meet the connection of their destiny. It was a wonderful thing to be a part of for a while and it was definitely fun to watch."  

The California connection came along in the form of Johnny Callahan, a northern California singer/songwriter who meet up with Conley in the Blue Bird cafe in Nashville. The two proceeded to form a band called SlapShoeFly and the pair went on to record the dungeon cuts in the fall of 2004.
