The debut of “Love & the Dark” is getting love from NPR, Talkhouse, No Depression, Billboard, Paste, Rolling Stone, Associated Press, The Boot, Bluegrass Situation and others.

While he was writing this album, his mother died from complications of alcoholism, his father went bankrupt after being sued by the King of Morocco, his sister was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and gave birth to a premature son with cerebral palsy, and Jason got sidetracked by his own vices. "Love & the Dark" is his personal narrative on death, struggle and addiction, of a life deconstructed and reassembled.

Tickets are $12. For information, go to radarstationart.com.
