From Jason Vitelli
Cinematic rock music with a vision; this is Jason's sound in a nutshell. His songs are vignettes, narratives, painting a picture with intertwining lyrics and melody. The birth of new material can be evoked from a dream, a book, a favorite movie or just a rousing conversation. Much of his writing is influenced by the experimental rock of the late 1970’s, marrying folk sentiment with the avant-garde crosscurrent of Berlin era Bowie, Kate Bush, Olivier Messiaen, James Joyce and Eric Dolphy. Mixing up the sonic colors, he finds the answer as it happens. The excitement of “going for it” concurrently as a composer, singer and musician is what Jason strives to capture in each moment.
