Jason Steel

Bio

Jason Steel is a singer & picker of stringed instruments. Originally from Yorkshire, he currently rests his head in North London. A Leigh Folk Festival perennial, he weaves the sounds of Appalachian and ragtime picking, the strange, old worlds of traditional folk and the ghosts of 1920’s Tin Pan Alley.

Produces a timeless atmosphere that remains free from pastiche or reproduction. He date-mixes traditional themes, the 1920s and right now in a most disconcerting wayfRoots

With the cautious, unhurried pace of a Fahey disciple, on a brace of rags his picking trickles easily like an Appalachian mountain stream. Meanwhile, across an array of original songs, his soft voice lulls seductively’. R2 Magazine
