ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

Our musical workshop is back, this time with an R&B twist. Participants will gain first-hand experience with song structure, elements of a hit song and an intro to song writing under the direction of musical sensation Jason Jet. By the end of the workshop attendees should have a verse and chorus to their own R&B ballad which will be recorded using the Audacity app.

About The Artist

Jason Jet "It's no small thing for a musician to be called the 'next best thing to come out of Charlotte,' especially when such praise comes from Grammy Award winner (and Queen City native) Anthony Hamilton." Read the full story on Jason Jet from NPR here.

Who could have foreseen that Iceland native, now Charlotte, NC resident Jason Jet would become a magnetic musical force, whose unquestionably unique talent would breathe fresh air into an otherwise complacent entertainment industry? The young performer quickly rooted himself into indie-soul music scene soon after his migration to the Queen City years ago. Blessed with a brilliant tenor voice, astounding production prowess and gripping lyricism, this sensuous singer/songwriter has an almost trancelike effect on anyone who listens. Welcome to Jason Jet’s world, where his music is an unforgettable experience.

“My relationships always influence my music,” explains Jet when asked about his musical inspiration. “The demand to be great, and lately, my spirituality, are being brought forth in my music as well.” Be on the lookout for Jet. He has already shared stages with numerous artists including Anthony Hamilton, Dwele, Eric Roberson, Sunshine Anderson, DJ 9th Wonder and more. Jet dreams of collaborating with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Erykah Badu and Andre 3000 just to name a few. Jet is well on his way to being a household name making music that will last for generations.
