Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Jason Pilling. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his sound.
I immediately liked the compositional approach of this artist who has very interesting harmonic intuitions.
The chord progression is never predictable and banal and manages to amaze the listeners with continuous twists.
The mix of the male voice with the female one is beautiful.
A singer-songwriter of sure talent that loves to experiment. The voice at times seemed insecure to me but this particularity instead of being a defect turned out to be, in my opinion, a sign that distinguishes, even more, the music of this artist.
Somehow his unique way of interpreting the songs makes you believe in the words of the lyrics.
An interesting discovery.
Little Crimes is Jason Pilling’s Single Out Now!
Bold and Unique!
Musician emerged, like a butterfly, from a white collar cocoon. He writes to the subjects and experiences of a person trying raise a family and pay off a mortgage. The lyrics aren’t always super-serious, but they’re never cliche.
The latest single “Little Crimes” joins the narrator as he considers how he could have better handled a confrontation with an unpleasant stranger – surely a situation we’ve all been in. The track was recorded entirely remotely with contributions over 1000’s of miles. No one met in person during the process.
Before the current series of single releases, Jason’s 2019 album White Collar Melodies was a sort of concept album with all lyrics tied back to stories from office towers. The Perils of Mobile Connectivity explores our modern 24/7 connections to the office. Keeping It Real addresses the potential loneliness of trans-continental careers, taking people far away from their friends and family.
In addition to solo efforts, Jason is in two other projects. He’s laying down bass grooves with the Toronto band GelaX. “Jason the Toque” is the driving force behind the collaboration band Young Toques and their first single release Me In Honey.
