Born and raised in Jackson Heights, Queens, Jason picked up his first guitar at age 12. He co-founded the heavy metal band MCMXCII-XCV (1992-1995) in high school and later went on to study piano, bass, and music education in college while starting his eclectic rock band MAGIC BULLET (1997-1999). For the new millenium, Jason created the instrumental prog-rock band ZOLTABRANE (2001-2006) to further expand his musical palette. A wide range of influences are evident in each band and in all of Jason's songs and compositions; an expressive approach he likens to an "artistic buffet". Jason is a family man, music educator, and solo artist who released the double album "Invaders from Earth" in 2021 (see link above) which brought all of his former bands together in a collaborative reunion-style release. Currently, he is back in action with MAGIC BULLET, having just completed a brand new album of eclectic, 80's-inspired songs.
