Jason Silver has been making music and writing songs since he was old enough to reach the keys. At the age of 7, with an upright piano in the family room, and armed with a new knowledge of three note chords, Jason wrote songs about girls down the street or something he learned in school. With age, came refinement, and Jason continued to hone the craft of songwriting through the years of elementary school and high school. The power ballads of the eighties became a source of inspiration, as groups like Chicago, Jack Wagner, Bonnie Tyler, and Lionel Richie rocked the airwaves. In college Jason toured with "Celebration," a college singing group and recruitment force. This experience singing to an audience was crucial in establishing his stage presence and comfort in front of crowds. Jason was married in 1995, and began taking jobs as a music director, arranging and directing bands for various churches, from Saskatoon, Canada, New Jersey, in the US, Kingston, and Hamilton in Ontario. Today Jason performs occasionally in local pubs and small bars, as well as leading a worship service in an old Anglican church.
