ABOUT

I'm looking for collaborators who believe in a team approach. If we're at least similar genre/interests, the I'll compromise if you will. Because IMO, the music will be better when more than one person is involved. If we pool our resources, the live show is better, we'll be able to market more widely - it's a win-win. The best bands have always been multiple people working together.

My originals are in the videos and audio linked here. Or find me ("Jason Pilling") on Spotify and YouTube. If you like what you hear, and you'd like to collaborate, contact me here, or look me up on Instagram or Twitter to get in contact.

On a one-off, I'm also happy to help you do your song. My skills are listed on this profile. Ask me for help.

Or for my song, I usually want help on lead guitar, backup vocals, synth layers, and percussion. Adding things like strings or horns would be cool. Tell me your strength that you'd like to contribute.

I can also trade feedback: e.g. rank alternative ideas, new ideas for arrangements, or review mixes/lyrics.

I'm also in the local band GelaX (gelaxband.com). Aiming high.

Influences

I care a lot about lyrics. Gord Downie, Aimee Mann are favourites - writers who approach common situations and make them poetic. I prefer to stay away from romantic or angry topics.

Genre-wise, I'm open minded but my strengths are guitar and vocal based. So - anything that blends with that. Radiohead, Regina Specktor, Andrew Bird, Conor Oberst, Fiona Apple are all aspirational targets.
