15 year old Jason Kertson has been drawn to music his whole life. He began learning to play the guitar at age 7 and mastering the instrument has been his passion ever since. He began performing in coffee houses and other venues when he was 9. His favorite artists from early on were Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, Alice in Chains, and The Sonics (one of Jason’s grandfathers is Rob Lind who is an original member of this iconic Seattle band). When he was 12 he started posting YouTube videos. This has led to many opportunities. At age 13 he performed at the Layne Staley Tribute Concert. He performed four Alice in Chains covers and stole the show. That fall, Jason was the youngest person ever to perform live on the Seattle radio station, KISW. At age 14, he was invited by the Experience Music Project to perform a grunge cover set in the Sky Church in conjunction with the opening of the Nirvana exhibit. He has performed live on Clear Channel’s “The Bob Rivers Show”, a local television show, “Evening Magazine”, and “Jason Kertson and the Immortals” performs regularly at Seattle area venues. Jason had the privilege of opening up for Styx in January of 2012. In February, 2011, Ray William Johnson, a YouTube Icon, tweeted “everybody is looking for the next Justin Bieber. My money is on this kid” and he attached a link of a YouTube video that was recorded when Jason was 12. Jason had 250,000 YouTube views that week. In the weeks that followed, we were contacted by several talent agents, managers, etc. One of the people who expressed interest in working with him was Dave Mustaine of Megadeth. This has led to a mentoring relationship, and Jason recorded a demo in Dave’s studio (Vic’s Garage). As a guitarist, Jason is very diverse in his abilities; from very complex acoustic styles to technically challenging electric guitar solos. As a vocalist, his soulful voice defies his age. As a writer, his insightful lyrics are moving and relatable, and his music is powerful and melodic. He already has 25 original songs to his credit. The Immortals:
Troy “Ringo” Wageman is the drummer. Troy’s skillful execution and progressive style is a perfect complement to Jason’s original material.
Jake Kelly is the newest Immortal on bass joining the band in April 2012.
