Dec 18, 2015

Jason Whelan announces the release of his long awaited second solo album - Connection. The album represents the many connections that have influenced Jason’s music identity and is available in stores and online now.

13 years have passed since Jason’s solo debut, Blur, was released. Like Blur, Connection echoes the incredibly diverse musical influences that have shaped Jason’s own musical identity, and offers a balanced program of traditional arrangements and original songs book-ended by two popular local cover songs. The recording represents connections - those between musical styles, people, and ideas; it embodies the multitude of connections that surround and link us.  Jason’s own connections within the local music community have resulted in an offering featuring some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s finest singers and musicians, each bringing their own distinctive style showcasing both traditional and contemporary influences.

Jason has been a stalwart of the Newfoundland and Labrador music community through 25 years as a performer, composer, technician and producer of recordings and live music projects. A talented composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Jason has drawn on this extensive musical and studio production knowledgeto create a unique recording. From the hard driving delivery of “Rocks of Ireland’s Eye” to the haunting imagery of “Once Around the Harbour”, the songs and instrumentals take the listener through a variety of styles and regions, while managing to retain a connection with their Newfoundland roots.

CONNECTION is available online and in stores now. For more information please visit
