Everyone loves a comeback. It’s been ten years since Jason Downs hit song "White Boy With a Feather" graced the UK airwaves… but he’s back and better than ever. After some typical music biz bullshit (bad managers, controlling producers and ultimately Jive Records being sold) Jason became disillusioned with the whole scene and returned to acting for a while. During which time he made some movies, made some babies (a son and a daughter with wife Sophia) and finally found his love for making music again. As
well as his own voice.
The new album is a labour of love, sweat and tears that represents Jason at his rawest, most vulnerable time of life. He had a hand in every aspect of its creation. Since his time in the European pop market Jason’s songs and lyrical style have matured along with his rich baritone and storytelling. The new album, “Love Me Alone” is more reminiscent of his earlier taste for sweet, sad rock ‘n’ roll and his deeper roots in folk and country. Combine that with a Grammy winning producer, Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel and Chris Whitley), and you’ve got magic.
"Bitch Of The Week" is the first single from the album......Enjoy!
