Live Music: Jason Meyers

  • Towne House Lounge

Drawing primarily from a wide repertoire of standards from the 1930’s and 1940’s, Jason Myers has the ability of capturing the spirit of that time while simultaneously adding his own distinct voice. His style has been influenced by “Fats” Waller, Nat “King” Cole, and Dave McKenna. In addition to his extensive repertoire from the American Songbook he includes original songs that range from sentimental ballads to modern novelties. Jason was the resident pianist at Hillstone (formerly Houston’s Restaurant) in San Francisco for thirteen years starting in February 1998. He performed solo piano until forming a trio in 2001. The Jason Myers Trio held steady five nights a week for over nine years until December 2010. Besides his own projects, Jason has also performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival with Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band, The Brian Kane Trio, Mal Sharpe’s Big Money In Dixieland, and been an accompanist for vocalists, Maye Cavallaro, Shanna Carlson, Carolyne Swayze, Jennifer Lee, Jackie Ryan, and Mary Stallings.
