As the front man for rock band The Monty Yanks, Jason Maas has played hundreds of shows across Manitoba. When the band called it quits in 2008, Jason saw the break up as an opportunity to start performing material that did not fit the Yank''s frenzied, hard rock style. He put together a group of musicians with a wealth of performing experience. His new band includes Frank Rizzuto, Jon Lemer, David Singleton (The Monty Yanks) and Tim Friesen (Ten Too Many/The Shouting Ground). In addition, Jason received help in the studio from vocalist Nicky Mehta (The Wailin'' Jennys). The band''s debut album, Clean, was recorded and mixed at Private Ear Recording by three time Prairie Music Award nominee, Neil Cameron, in February 2009.
The album is a mix of wildly divergent musical styles, ranging from folk to sock-hop rock, from pop to faux-gospel. It is now available for sale online and in stores.
