Jason Tyler Burton is a wanderer, a soul searching adventurer who writes songs about the journey. Originally from Kentucky, he now lives near the headwaters of the Green River in Wyoming. His songs and stories are heart felt, reflecting a search for meaning and home, with a voice and lyrics that invite you to lean in a little, and really listen.
What others are saying: "He’s the kind of songwriter that makes you feel glad to be a folk music fan – and the scary thing is he seems to be getting better and better. This is a delightful little contribution to a growing discography." - Greg Jones (Ear to the Ground Music: http://www.eartothegroundmusic.co/) (2016)
""A Garden Grows" is maybe the best new song I have heard all year. [Headwaters] is among my top handful of CDs released this year." - Larry Hillberg, KVMR, California (2014)
Jason Tyler Burton sits alongside the pantheon of artists and storytellers possessed by the landscape and story of the untamed American wilderness (think Ansel Adams, John Muir, and contemporaries Wendell Berry and David James Duncan). With his sophomore release HEADWATERS, he invites you into the belief that a song can do more than tell just a story. It can help navigate the thick and foreboding wilderness of the soul John Muir referred to in saying, “I wish I knew where I was going. Doomed to be carried of the spirit into the wilderness, I suppose. I wish I could be more moderate in my desires, but I cannot, and so there is no rest.”
