Jason Kelley grew up in Ohio listening to Classic Rock and 80′s Hip Hop music. To Jason, the appeal of the music industry had never been about living the pop culture life, but more so having the power of voice. The ability to reach many people with his work is a very rewarding feeling he strives to fully attain. Being raised on the “musical storytellers” of his generation has directly influenced his songwriting abilities. From a time when music was emotional with raw soul and spirit, to new-age up-tempo pop culture, Jason Kelley acquired inspirational elements that he attributes to his creativity.
