    Jason Walker


    Jason Walker brings his moveable feast to Melbourne's fine Fitzrovian venue, the Labour in Vain THIS Sunday evening from 5pm to 7pm. Come down and cry into your beer.

    Following Saturday night's tribute to Gene Clark at the Old Bar, Jason will be joined at the Labour In Vain by some of the artists who are participating in that show, including Johnny Livewire, Belle Phoenix and others.

    JASON WALKER has played pedal steel and guitar with practically everybody on the Sydney scene with a bit of bent towards country music. 

    He also carries another light under that handy bushel. After four albums, and a fifth to be recorded early in the new year, he is finally gaining some recognition as as a solo artist and singer/songwriter in his own right. 

    Jason's four released albums showcase his facility as a songwriter in the rock/country mould, from influences ranging from Gram Parsons and Gene Clark through to less obvious influences including CAN, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Wilco, the Replacements and Big Star. 

    He's also a published author; his first book is the third-published and some say the best, Gram Parsons biography, 2002's God’s Own Singer and also penned a book on Billy Thorpe, Billy Thorpe's Time On Earth (2009).
