Jason new album BEST TRACKS AND SIDE TRACKS 1979-2007 was just released on Yep Roc Records. The double CD set is a complete overview of Jason's solo career to-date including his pre-Scorchers band Shakespeare's Riot and new versions of Farmer Jason and Jason & The Scorchers favorites. A co-bill or the right support spot is fine.
Jason & the Scorchers received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Americana Music Association in Nashville, TN in September.
For over two decades, first as front with country-rock pioneers Jason and the Scorchers and now as aninternationally acclaimed solo artist with three solo cds under his belt, former Illinois farm boy JasonRingenberg has blazed a path as both innovator and interpreter of American country music. Jason has spentthe past three years touring the U.S. - even Alaska, all over Europe, and Australia. A hard-working performerwho travels light - just him, his guitar and his trademark yelp-Ringenberg has earned the moniker "the rockinest folksinger that ever lived!" The Scorchers recently celebrated their 20th anniversary with re-issues on Yep Roc Records.They toured with artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Carl Perkins, and REM among many others. http://www.jasonringenberg.com/

He has a video program based on his songs playing on several PBS TV stations around the country."Rockin' In The Forest" explores a musical woodland where children experiencenatural wonders and receive subtle lessons on ecology, fitness, and history. He performs at schools, festivals, public libraries,museums, and other performing art spaces all over the globe. He recently performed at the ACL Fest in Austin, StagecoachFestival in Southern California, Big State Festival in Houston, Winnipeg Folk Festival in Canada and Old Town Schoolof Folk in Chicago.
