Jason was inspired to pick up the guitar at age 10, after a long obsession with a toy guitar that would play Eddie Van Halen licks at the push of a button.
He never did learn to play any of those licks, but a passion for music took hold that would lead him towards a career performing funk, soul, and jazz music. Jason currently performs with soul-jazz group Lou’ana, and instrumental R&B/funk group The Morningside Philharmonic.
Check out his Instagram and the new album “Moonlight Madness” from Lou’ana on Spotify and all other major streaming platforms.”
“To me, Stephan is proof that builders here in New Zealand are producing instruments that are on par with the most sought-after (and most expensive!) names in the industry.
The Phase Four has the versatility and depth of sound I’ve been looking for – it does everything I needed from a Small Stone or Phase 90 incredibly well, but has so much more scope to go beyond conventional phaser sounds into wilder musical territory”
Jason plays a Phase Four Phaser and is giving me his advice on upcoming effects. He knows when things are funky, in the best possible way.
