Jason Kertson

Singer, Songwriter & Guitarist

Jason Kertson has been drawn to music his whole life. He began learning to play the guitar at age 7 and mastering the instrument has been his passion ever since. He began performing in coffee houses and other venues when he was 9.

In December 2013, Duff McKagan of Guns n’ Roses contacted Jason and asked if he would play guitar in the Pink Slips, a band that his daughter Grace was forming. They performed together for the first time in Seattle on New Year’s Eve 2013 and recorded an EP in 2014.

As a guitarist, Jason is very diverse in his abilities; from very complex acoustic styles to technically challenging electric guitar solos. As a vocalist, his soulful voice defies his age. As a writer, his insightful lyrics are moving and relatable, and his music is powerful and melodic. He already has over 100 original songs to his credit.
