Another fine album from the former trucker. I'm going to get on one of my hobby horses now and wonder why guys like Jason don't get the coverage/airplay that someone like James Morrison/Jack Johnson etc get. Maybe it's because he just hasn't been in the right place at the right time but he has a maturity and down to earthiness that deserves a much wider audience. You kind of hope that one of these tracks gets chosen to be on a film soundtrack or something to give him exposure, but would such success stop him being "ours"?
Ah well, buy this album if you like melodic, folk tinged rock with a bit of attitude.

A well received Christmas presentReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 January 2017
It was bought as a Christmas present, but I'm told it's a good album.
Five StarsReviewed in Canada on 20 September 2017
Some excellent covers if a little more country sounding than I was expecting. Vinyl quality is great.
