"I, Jason Paul Smith of "From the Kuiper Krow", was born in little town just off the Gulf Coast called Houston. I began playing music when I was about 12 years old. I was given a pair of drum sticks and after having beat the shit out of my mattress for a few months, I gave interest to an instrument with a more subtle introduction. I learned to play guitar. At first, I had no intention of learning the instrument. I wanted to learn how to play only one song on guitar, Silent Lucidity by Queensryche.
I was raised in Houston and lived there until I was 19 years old. My first move away from home led me to Austin, Texas where I spent the next 7 years of my life. I lived in Austin until August 2005. Work brought me out west to the town of El Paso where I live for 6 years before moving to San Antonio where I currently reside.
My greatest musical influences are Tool, The Deftones, Foo Fighters and the classic and forever loved, Pink Floyd.
I have recorded several full length albums with names and cover art all on my own, but the numbers of songs that I've written is more than I can count. The key factor in developing my sound is first taking some of my favorite music by my favorite artists and letting it influence each song that I write. There is a little of every band that I love in each note.
Second is to visualize the impression it would have on others, mainly my friends. If I think a part of a song could be interpreted as too simple, I will add a couple of notes to create a more intricate sound.
I have picked up and learned to play a few instruments over the years, bass, piano and even singing, but my love for music started with guitar and to it's six strings, I will always remain loyal."
