About the song
Jason's single Soil and Ashes was released in August 2023 on all streaming platforms. Produced by Mark Troyer at Evergreen Sound and written by Jason, it features a lineup of Juno, CCMA, and YYCMA award-winning musicians including Matty McKay, Spencer Cheyne, Justin Kudding, and Mitch Jay.
The song uses a strong melody, dynamic soundscape, and vivid wildfire imagery to deliver a heartfelt story about the aftermath of a bad relationship, and a reminder that it can be fertile ground to grow something even better. With references to Alberta locales and geography, Jason has also chosen to put a spotlight on his own roots.
