Biography

San Francisco, United States (1996 – present)

Jason Falkner (born June 2, 1968) is an American pop and rock musician. He has performed with several bands, most notably Jellyfish in San Francisco, California, as well as being solo artist.

In 1996, he released the album “Jason Falkner Presents Author Unknown”, which was produced, written, and performed almost entirely by Falkner (the only exception being some guitar overdub done by Alain Johannes). Although it received strong critical reviews, it was not a commercial success. During that same year, he wrote several songs on Brendan Benson’s album “One Mississippi”, and played various instruments on an album released in 1996, by Susanna Hoffs. In 1997, he worked with Eric Matthews on a second album, The Lateness of the Hour, co-producing and assisting on five tracks.

In 1999, Falkner released ‘Can You Still Feel?”, another album written and performed as an entire solo effort, it was produced with Nigel Godrich. In 2000 Jason was kept very busy, touring and contributing to various projects. He recorded a song for a tribute album, and played backup on Roger Manning and Brian Reitzell’s album “Logan’s Sanctuary”.

In 2007 Jason is credited as performing several instruments on Becks release from that year, “The Information”. It is also rumored that Jason does some limited touring as part of Beck’s band.

He released his third album “I’m OK… You’re OK” in Japan. In 2009, he released his fourth album “All Quiet On the Noise Floor,” again only in Japan.

    I went to high school with Jason and played on the same soccer team when we were kids. Bumped into him a couple of years ago at a Church gig. Nice guy.

    I think it's quite sad that a pop genius, which he is in my book, like Jason Falkner, can't get his records distributed in Europe. I'd love to see him play in Denmark! I'm inspired by Jason Falkner as a composer and singer, and you can listen to my band at http://www.myspace.com/thenormanconquestdk

    Ok, now i'm sure: All Quiet is great. Needed some time but now it's my second favorite JF album after PAU.

    I'm not enjoying it much so far, and I'm really sad about that. I hope it's a grower.

    MySpace Music was streaming All Quiet on the Noise Floor. It's brilliant!

    There's a new Jason Falkner album, "All Quiet on the Noise Floor," out now in Japan. Lord knows if it'll ever actually come out in the US, but there you have it! Go plunk down $35 for the import or root around for a torrent if you want it.

    Jason Falkner is absolutely awesome. I found some of my Jellyfish albums again, and I was amazed by his contributions...yet again. His music never ceases to amaze me. My personal favourite is Afraid Himself To Be - he's such a simple yet beautiful songwriter and musician. He's also really good looking too - that's definitely a bonus. :D

    I just love him. He's one of the greatest living singer-songwriters; he's like an Alex Chilton who never went shit! Amazing talent.
