Jace is the easier to remember name of singer/songwriter Jason Pawlak.
Jason was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. Like most, Jason was around music a great deal at an early age. His father, Dennis, founded the local band, Armor. Armor was a classic rock band in the vein of Led Zeppelin, Boston, Foreigner, Van Halen, etc. So very young, Jason was a rocker.
At age 3 Jason began playing drums ... constantly. His early aspirations were to become a rock drummer. Unfortunately, Jason was born about 10 years too late. At 13 he began piddling on the keyboards, no lessons, just noodling around a few chords, a few songs, no theory. Being able to play piano instead of just drums gave Jason a way to start writing songs (drummers generally make poor songwriters). By his mid teens Jason started focusing on writing. Most of the tunes were piano oriented soft rock, similar to Richard Marx, Bryan Adams, Diane Warren, and so on.
In his late teens Jason moved towards bass and acoustic guitar. The guitar gave him a new instrument with a whole new arena of dynamics. This moved him to write other styles of songs, overall a bit more upbeat, well... musically at least. He made dozens of home demos and, like many aspiring songwriters, sent them to numerous publishers, agents, record companies, and Taxi.
In 2000, the week of his 25th birthday, Jason moved to Orlando Florida to begin working as a piano player/entertainer at Jellyrolls Dueling Piano Bar on Walt Disney World''s Boardwalk. At Jellyrolls, Jason learned a great deal about music theory, structure, arrangement, and harmony from the senior piano players. For the next couple of years Jason concentrated on his job as an entertainer at Jellyrolls and put his songwriting and recording on hold.
In December of 2002 he began work on the CD Stolen Season. Like many other projects there were delays on top of delays, but it was finally completed in September 2005. The writing and production of Stolen Season was influenced by a wide range of artists like Bryan Adams, Def Leppard, Goo Goo Dolls, Amy Grant, Boston, James Taylor, Bon Jovi, Brian Howe, Indigo Girls, Jude Cole, and surely many others.
Stolen Season is a harmony filled hook driven classic rock/pop album. Jason wrote all songs and had immeasurable help in the production and guitar department from his father, Dennis, and brother, Trevor.
Jason is still performing 5 nights a week at Jellyrolls and is now focused on promoting his new CD as much as possible.
