Press Release:

Dead Meadow's Los Angeles based guitarist and vocalist Jason Simon embarks on his debut solo tour!

Jason Simon, best known for his acclaimed work as the guitarist and singer for the highly regarded Los Angeles based heavy psych band Dead Meadow, has, to much delight of his fans, finally recorded his debut solo record. This self-titled offering has been released on the renowned East Coast stoner doom / psych label Tee Pee Records. Whilst building up an electrified body of work with Dead Meadow, Jason has slowly but surely been crafting his skills as an impressive acoustic solo artist, which has since earned him a vast array of critical acclaim, not to mention further respect as a valued singer songwriter.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of Leonard Cohen, Sandy Bull, Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt, Jason has ingeniously blended his signature vocal style with that of laid back acoustic folk, which has ultimately created a sound thatís entirely his own, and one thatís undisputable recognizable.

Jasonís debut offering is a stripped down and intimate record filled with intricate guitar work and poignant well-thought lyrics.  Some songs are filled with dark brooding drones, whilst others leisurely carry the listener down meandering rivers as they slowly develop in their own unhurried way. This album is a serious body of work that remind the listener that heavy doesnít always come from loud distorted guitars and huge pounding drums, but comes from the depth within the song itself.
