Jason Chaffee releases new single and video release at the Aster

I know that Jason Chaffee is a great guy from our conversation when he visited the Mostly Minnesota Music radio show. We had the great pleasure of having him do an in-studio performance but it was even more fun to see him play with his full band to a full room at the Aster Café.

Jason is a rocker hearkening back to the days of John Cougar Mellencamp, maybe even a little Bruce Springsteen. It’s undeniably masculine with a comfortably gruff voice, loud music, heavy beat but the songs are so emotive. The storytelling is honest and touching. And the full band was great. They look like they’re having a good time together and they seem to feed off each other on stage.

He played Going Home, which is one of my favorites. There’s a country undercurrent with a distinct but easy beat. There’s a familiarity in the themes and the tune. On the opposite side of emotion he played, Lost it All. It was a softer start and a compelling story and while there’s still a hint of country, it could also be shelved under rock ballad.

The unveiled video was Un Momento about the butterfly effect – very clever. We’ll have to keep an eye out for the online debut.
