Album Notes
“Thriftstore Cowboy one of the best new albums of 2006.”

“Perfectly suited for AAA mainstream radio,”
Smother Magazine

“Jason is a storyteller the likes of which we haven't heard in several years.”

Country/Americana singer Jason Whitton spent the first few years of his life in a small rural Texas town named Bryan before his family moved to Houston in the early 70s. The first record he can remember listening to was a greatest hits collection from Elvis Presley, a treasured gift from his grandmother. Growing up in the south where country music is prevalent, it would be years before he would discover a band named The Beatles.

Whitton has sung and performed most of his life and credits hearing the Garth Brooks country anthem, "The Dance," as the moment he started thinking about singing and songwriting on a professional level. After heading west and moving to California in 1990, Jason’s parents bought him a classical guitar as a symbolic gift to wish him luck in the pursuance of his career . At first, he tried playing the thing right-handed, but just like Ziggy Stardust, he played the guitar left-handed. Stringing it up-side-down, he soon began playing constantly and writing songs to sing for friends.

"People ask me, 'Where do you get your inspiration?' And I always tell them that normal people inspire me to write the songs I do. I feel that everyone has a story worth telling. Interesting things happen to regular people. So, I just try to listen for things that spark the writer in me. I try to tell stories that are honest, stories that are personal and stories that somehow touch people on some universal level. It is an ongoing process that I constantly work on. I also write songs about things that have happened to me, because I'm a regular person as well.”
Whitton recently finished his debut CD, “ThriftStore Cowboy,” set for a February 7, 2006 release on V A V V Records. The CD was produced by Sebastian Sheehan and Jon Mattox and was recorded at Bright Orange Studios in Los Angeles. Jason plans to tour throughout 2006 in local and national venues. Don't miss this up and coming singer-songwriter who is bound to make waves in the Americana and Country music communities.

The real deal
Superb album, shown at its best on Track 1 "Alibi" - surely, almost defining the perfect country songz? - and a great showcase for JW's versatile range. I dare your pulse not to quicken on that first kick-ass bass thump as our boy winds his sinuous voice around the chorus's "O-h-h, why? Don’t give me that sigh", ending with a velveteen murmured "Don’t give me that alibi". A stunner and a singer to watch.

Robbie Wilks

I was amazed that this was a first effort. The production was excellent and the songs were truly inspired. I liked it so much I've bought several copies as Christmas presents for friends. I highly recommend this CD.

L.G. Durel

This is one of those rare CD's where the ladies get to hear what they always wanted a guy to say. And the men, when they hear it say, that's what I want to say to my girl. Great stories you can visualize, some with a touch of humor and you find yourself singing along by the second listening. Can't want for the next one and the one after that.

Patrick Belton

This CD is amazing! Flawless production combined with raw, unadulterated, talent. Thriftstore Cowboy will take you for a full journey that heightens the senses, tells a story, and leaves you with a throbbing heart and a bad case of the goose bumps. Jason Whitton is riveting - a true genius combining the art of folk and soul music.
