I’m old school Americana singer-songwriter Jason Bennett.
I’ve been a cover band player in central Ohio for over 20 years and have decided it’s time to write and record my own stuff. I released my debut EP October, 2018. I have a new CD set to release at the beginning of March, 2022.
You can see in the gray beard and the wrinkles around my eyes that I’m not a young fella. I’m running full-ahead with the nickname ‘The Yodeling Grandpa’. You can hear me yodel in my song Woe Is Me and I’m a grandpa so the nickname fits really well.
I did a midwest/southern tour winter of 2018 and did a Columbus to Washington state and back tour during the summer of 2019. I’m currently working on setting up a coffee house tour for the summer of 2022.
I’ve been able to do a bunch of fun things in my music career. I’ve played keyboards for Joey Mullins of Badfinger. I co-wrote the score for a Chicago Theater District run play. I’ve screamed in a thrash metal band. I sang baritone in a barbershop quartet. I played piano in a jazz band. I yodel and play keys, guitar and harmonica in a polka band. I’ve sat in with many great musicians.
While listing these things I started wondering what my life would be like if I didn’t have music. I’m grateful that I don’t have to know the answer.
