Jason Eady is a singer-songwriter whose music is a distillation of country, bluegrass, blues, gospel, folk and Southern rock, but in essence is roots all the way, with organic arrangements, genuine lyrics, and strong lead and harmony vocals, no matter what style of song he is writing. Originally from Jackson, Miss., Eady started playing guitar at age 13, played in various cover bands around the state, and reveled in exposure to Mississippi’s varied musical genres. It all worked to infuse his music – through his days in Nashville, the re-ignition of his dream to touch listeners’ hearts and minds with his original songs after a stint as a U.S. Air Force translator, and his August 2005 debut album, FROM UNDERNEATH THE OLD, which was produced by Texas songwriter Walt Wilkins and instrumentalist Tim Lorsch and which peaked at #9 on XM Channel 12 (X Country). The same month Eady would meet musicians that would become his next touring and studio band. Scott Davis of The Woodlands moved to Fort Worth to attend TCU and graduated with a degree in radio-TV-film-video, playing in several Dallas-Fort Worth area bands including Woodeye, Chatterton and Quaker City. He plays guitar, mandolin, accordion, Dobro, lap steel and banjo and sings harmony vocals. Kenny Smith, from Dallas-Fort Worth, has been playing drums professionally for more than 10 years, playing in Woodeye and Chatterton with Davis. Six months after meeting Smith at a private party, where the two played some impromptu songs together, Eady began putting together a band, and Smith was the first person he called. Bass player Jordan Kiener was a perfect fit, too; he had moved to Denton to start a musical career after earning a degree at Oklahoma in instrumental music education, focusing on jazz and playing clarinet and bass. He answered Eady’s ad and was the only person auditioned, after band members heard his playing and high harmonies. Together the quartet is Jason Eady & The Wayward Apostles, so named to spread the word about the band’s roots-music origins while putting its own spin on tradition. From different musical backgrounds and incorporating them all, theirs is a unique sound. Touring regionally and nationally for the past year with cuts from its upcoming album, WILD EYED SERENADE, has earned the band airplay on Americana stations. It was tracked live in one open room to give it a live and authentic roots sound. Eady continues to stay true to his roots music and touching audiences with its honesty and inspiration – the thing he’s always wanted to do.

Jason does not disappoint in his latest CD. If you are a fan of traditional country music sung by one of the smoothest voices around, Daylight and Dark might just be the best CD you buy in all of 2014. This CD contains some of his best work to date and is the perfect follow-up to last year's very popular AM Country Heaven. No doubt this album will hover around the top of the Texas Country Music charts just like it's predecessor. A must-have for your CD collection. You will not be be disappointed!

We just saw the Jason Eady Band at Gruene Hall last weekend, 3/25/07, around noon, I might add. They were fantastic! And we see a lot of music around here. We immediately bought the current CD, which we've listened to about 6 times in one week, and we look forward to the new one in August. Thanks, Jeanne and Jack

Jason is perhaps my girlfriend's favorite of the many red dirt/TX rockers we have seen live over the past year .He is clearly down to earth and into his music ;yet respectful of all others . His band is tight -and their harmony very rare these days .Hope he gets more support in chasing his dream and continues to have fun .JASON - We want you to HURRY into the studio ,or tape some live stuff -need another CD sooner than later .

Steve, I had the same first impression of Jason Eady when I saw him doing warmup duty for Deryl Dodd at the Nutty Brown Cafe in Dripping Springs recently. I went up to him after the show and told him, "I can't believe you're that good and I never heard of you." His songs are original and unique, he has the voice to sing them, and he has put together a band of excellent musicians, including an awesome drummer. I suggest to anyone that Jason Eady is well worth checking out.
