Jason Harrod is a Brooklyn-based performing songwriter known for generous melodies and poetic, image-rich lyrics. He has been songwriting, recording, and performing for over 20 years, over which time he has built a loyal grassroots following.
Harrod's songs are cinematic travelogues, filled with quirky narrative detail, and propelled by a honey-dipped tenor. Often they contain dry observations about love and friendship. Other songs are passionate explorations of Faith, in which Jason sings of yearning to be known, redeemed, and set free.
In addition to his fan following, Jason Harrod has earned the acclaim of industry leaders. In 2000, he won first place in the bluegrass category of MerleFest's Chris Austin Songwriting competition. The following year, he took first place in the North Carolina Songwriters Co-Op contest and followed that up with a 2002 appearance on Arthur Smith's Carolina Calling stage with Alison Krauss and Union Station. Jason was selected as a spotlight performer at the annual Healdsburg Guitar festival in 2009, sponsored by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and in 2011 he was awarded a grant to by the Speranza Foundation to write and record.
