100% Original Aussie Blues
Jason McKell's take on the Blues is authentic and unique. His style is raw and original.
He is a prolific song writer and has now developed enough of his own material to perform full shows of completely original Aussie Blues music.
Most audiences are totally unaware and that Jason's recent performances are all original compositions. The quality of his music and depth of his writing consistently produce authentic "juke joint worthy" ol'skool sounds which are winning over Blues fans at every outing.
Jason's aim has always been to produce original acoustic Blues music which is as authentic and stripped back as possible. His writing is peppered with the influences of players like Howling Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Skip James, R.L.Burnside, Rev Gary Davis, John Lee Hooker, Muddy waters, Albert KIng, BB King , Johnny Winter and many more
Jason describes his music as "a stripped back pretty simple acoustic Blues, no backing tracks or loop pedals or anything like that...just straight ol'skool style".
Primarily an acoustic soloist but quite often accompanied by friends in various duo and trio options.
No matter which format he is playing in you can expect to hear 100% Original Aussie music played with an authenticity which comes from a genuine love of the Blues.
In that vein his writing comes directly from his own life and experiences.
This quote from the great Taj Mahal is representative of Jasons approach to his music ...
"Would the great musicians that came before you be proud of the Music that you're playing?
