Jason and the Music Factory

So, Ok time for another update. Meant to do it sooner and even said I would! Oops! Life happens, you know? As Lennon said life is what happens while your busy making other plans. I didn't put the quote marks, because as I’m writing this I may have paraphrased it. Anyway, on with the show. You may or may not have noticed here all the small changes and some of the bigger changes too. It is to put all my “stuff” in one neato easy to use place. Giving you all the tools to get connected with me and find out about my oh so exciting life. Really its pretty good, but the last line was dripping with sarcasm. So lets get to moving. I’ve got stuff to do and so should you.

We have added Bands In Town and the mailing list to the right. Every form of social media I currently engage in are located to the right. If it says subscribe, like or whatever. Please take that nano second and do it. It will be fun! I promise I’m not from Nigeria in need of a loan. I’ll take the money if you want to give it, but no scam here. Just music and hopefully some fun. I won’t be selling your information to anyone. They can get their own damn list. Let's keep moving.
Representing Nashville in the Top 10 last week on N1M

I'm also starting a monthly Spotify playlist for your enjoyment. You can also find that on the bottom right of the page. It's music I'm currently enjoying - some new, some old and a little bit of everything in between. If you want to let me know what your currently listening to or want to recommend a band or song that you think I would enjoy please drop me a line. As you may notice my taste is pretty eclectic.

The easiest way to get here is redlightsymphony.com or jasonhumphrey.net or just bookmark it now. Either way the off ramp of the information super highway will drop you off curbside right here. A shrine to myself and all my greatness. As a living sign of my altruism to share my great gifts with you. Again, very heavy on the sarcasm. Try to keep up people and stay in a single file line. Onward thusly!

Soon I will be boarding a metal winged bird headed to a undisclosed location. It’s a dry, flat area of land with red dirt (think mars), to bring back a few tracks of music that you can enjoy in any digital medium of your choosing. Along with grooved vinyl polymers of which you can consume mass quantities. If you so choose. Let’s keep moving headed to our final stop.

Which brings us here to the final paragraph. Albums, tours and much more to announce as we get closer to the new year. I’m looking forward to visiting every country, state, city, village, town or neighborhood that will have me. More info soon!

P.S. That made me feel a little like Willy Wonka. Not the Johnny Depp one, but Gene Wilder, the good one. Where are my Oompa Loompas? Can’t get anyone to show up on time……..Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do...

Peace & Love, J

Blog Post #2 2016!

As I promised, here is blog two for this week. I mentioned album releases in the last post. That is the case. In fact, there will be three. You read that correctly - 1, 2, 3 releases! (That reads like the Count from Sesame Street.) Anyway, as we progress in the upcoming weeks, I will be unveiling the album covers, titles and dates of release. I’m aware that it’s a lot of music to unleash on people at one time, but that’s just how it worked out. Trust me, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
I also mentioned a music video in the last post. I’ve been sitting on that for a while now. I was fortunate enough to work with a talented artist from Hungary on this video. There is some tweaking left to do on it, but it will debut prior to the release of one album in particular.
After my last post, I was notified by Number One Music (N1M) of my current chart positions. I’m always happy to share those result with everyone. Not to pat myself on the back, but to thank everyone for their continued support. I couldn’t be happier that the tracks that have been released have connected with so many people around the globe. I am always touched to receive everyone’s email and messages. It is never taken for granted when someone takes time out of their busy lives to write me a personal letter. I always try to respond as quickly as I can. I have brought someone on to help manage my social media presence. It is, as we all know, a big part of keeping you all up to date on what’s going on. I will still read and respond to your messages personally. This frees me up to work on what is the basis of all this and that is the music and making sure that the music and live shows meet my exacting standards; hence, me releasing three albums at one time. It’s not ready until I say it is. The gaps between releases in the future will not be anything as long as the previous one has. So, it takes the weight off me to delegate some of these things to people that are as passionate as I am to make sure that you are engaged in the process as much as possible. So many great things coming and can’t wait to share them with you.
Latest Chart Results from N1M as of Thursday.
Next week’s blog will include a video post. Wishing everyone a happy and relaxing weekend. 
Peace & Love, J

New Blog Post 2016!

Damn it got dusty around here!

Okay, it has been a long time since I've updated this blog or my website. With the upcoming releases, they both will be receiving a new coat of paint and moving up on my priority list. Yes, you read that correctly: releases plural. There will be a lot of new release information, shows and, yes, even a music video. Ooh tantalizing right? Maybe....maybe not. Perhaps you just want to understand what the hell it is that I do. Well, that is the real purpose of this whole thing. It's going to be a lot of different things and I hope you'll check it out. My intention is at least one new blog a week. It will include some video as I work and some for just general entertainment. Plus some music gear geek out and maybe a heads up on music I’m listening to that you might dig. There will also be bass guitar oriented blogs as well. We’ll just see how this whole thing develops.

This is my little music soapbox and Facebook is not really the place for long form posts. Most people want to quickly catch up, hit like, or make a quick comment and move on with their lives. I've also noticed that a picture will receive more attention than a link to a video. That video is a commitment of time that people weren't prepared to give you when all they want to do is quickly open Facebook. Likewise, Twitter isn't really a place to discuss anything at length. I find 140 characters is somewhat constricting. Let's face it, we are being conditioned to have the attention span of goldfish, and that's being generous. 
Enjoy this NEW self portrait

This blog is a way for me to use the long form art of writing. I think I can do a better job of keeping you up to date and babble a little bit. I'll try to keep it tight and concise, but I'm not very good at composing short songs either.
Anyway, I'm glad you stopped by and for those who didn't, you suck. (You'll have to get use to my dry sense of humor.) I hope I can put that across in my writing. My hope is to share my thoughts a little bit. This will not be the only post this week...it will be a double header week! I will be posting links on the social media sites mentioned above to let you know when I have dropped one of my pearls of wisdom on you. Until next time...

Peace & Love, J
