Biography

Jason Brock Born: December 3rd, 1967
Birthplace: Chelsea, MA
Currently Resides: San Diego, CA
Best Known As: Guitarist for MP3.com star Emily Richards, founder of Songserverworldwide.com

Early Life:
When he was young his mother, a bank teller, and father, a telecommunications worker, encouraged him to play trumpet in the school band. He sang in the school choir and taught himself to play guitar, piano, and drums. After attending George Washington University, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue music.

In Los Angeles:
Jason formed the rock band Blowtorch Opera in 1990 with front man and Cherokee recording studio co-worker Paul Condon, bassist Geoff Hartman, and Drummer Mike Nieland. Though the band broke up, the Hartman-Nieland-Brock trio remained intact and went on to record and tour with numerous bands including Maximum R.O.A.C.H.,
Orangehand and MP3.com popstar Emily Richards.

Brock toured nationally with Richards in the summer of 2000 helping Richards to become the most downloaded independent artist on the internet at that time. The tour, historic in scope, was made possible in large part by Emily’s manager Kevin Carmony, and MP3.com’s CEO and founder Michael Robertson. The success of MP3.com and the tour represented a major shift in how musicians would reach their fans.

Shortly after the tour however, MP3.com was sued and bought out by Universal in a major label attempt to gain control over the free-form culture MP3.com represented.
