What started as a one-piece singer-songwriter act in 2009, has now become a growing project. Mid 2010, The Jason Connelly Band was launched, a sound caught somewhere in between the old sounds of the late and great Ray CharlesView More >
and the new sounds of the soulful, yet modern, Ray Lamontagne. In April 2012, The Jason Connelly Band added Ben Kriff, a dynamic lead player with rock and blues roots. Bens soulful leads paired with Jason’s unmatched voice that ranges from full on gospel to funk, soul, and country all wrapped up in one creates
what we know today as The Jason Connelly Band.
From some of the finest concert halls of the southeast to the gutter themed nightclubs of Bronx, NY, The Jason Connelly Band has truly captured the right to call themselves a fully-fledged gigging band. In the spring of 2011, fans and music lovers were given Leave Your Hat at the Door, a compilation of work produced and written by Jason Connelly and Keith Hirsch, and were blown away by the dynamics of each track. Every lyric and every melody seemed to dispel any rumors that music was no longer thought-provoking.
After a year of writing, singing, and trying to decide the sound and direction of their next upcoming record, the boys had written so many songs in such a
short time that one record was not enough. In the midst of creating Something Beautiful, Something Tragic. a full-band production record similar to that
of Leave Your Hat at the Door due to release at the end of 2013, the idea of Homemade Wine was born. Homemade Wine is an intimate, wine-sipping,
solo-record meant for those cool summer months in the wait of the next production record. Make no mistake, Homemade Wine will do anything but
bore you. Meant to capture the powerful voice of Jason Connelly in his natural light paired with only the strings of his guitar. It is the perfect gift
for the fans anticipating the next heavy hitting record, Something Beautiful, Something Tragic.
