Jason and Blake Waldron at RBC

Jason grew up on the family farm northeast of Effie…. he did plenty of animal chores as well as logging with his father. In his teenage years, he decided to simplify things by putting a new floor in his great grandpa’s wooden granary and lived in it. It was 16ft long by 10ft wide. Side walls were 4ft high. (No windows)… He towed it out in the middle of the field, put a barrel stove in the end without the door, and started using only draft horses. He put in a 1-and-a-half acre garden and had 2 milking cows.
In addition to simple, off the grid living, Jason always enjoyed singing and he started playing guitar when he was 27 years old. Some local music veterans helped him start a band about five years ago. And he’s been enjoying playing ever since!

Some of the artists Jason likes to play are:

  • Tyler Childers
  • Hank Jr
  • Colter Wall
  • Buck Owens
  • Hank 3
  • Waylon Jennings
  • Johnny Cash
