Introducing The Jason Spooner Band from the complete opposite end of our country.
JSB hail from the picturesque coast of Maine – a perfect backdrop for a lifestyle that is pure, uncomplicated and honest, the perfect combo for an introspective singer-songwriter such as Jason Spooner.
The newest album (their 4th!), Chemical, is set for release on September 16.
Chemical’s first single, “Fireflies”, overflows with youthful memories and descriptive imagery that transports the listener to simpler and desirable times.
Legendary Nashville axeman Bucky Baxter’s well-known talents (Bob Dylan, R.E.M., Ryan Adams, Steve Earle) shines throughout the track.

The song’s popularity has even prompted a fan-driven promotion; provide the band with the perfect photo to accompany your summer.
Fans have submitted landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, coastlines, lakes – images of summer and what listening to this beautiful song means to them. At the end of August, The Jason Spooner Band will compile the fan submitted photos into a video – made by, and for, their fans.
