As nostalgic as it may be, writing up this interview has made me second guess all of my work, since Jason Brody is also a writer and an editor, but it is what it is.
Jason’s unique way of going back and forth in time was easy to follow for me, but made no sense to any one else who looked at my steno pad. I will take you on the journey that I was privileged to be a part of.
Finding inspiration from the loss of his grandparents, Jason says it, “made a darker feel to the music.” The release of this pain into music is both lingering and therapeutic. There are many political elements that are embedded within the lyrics. You do not have to read between the lines to find them, they are very blatant and in your face, “OCCUPYING WALL STREET”.
Jason has a very profound view towards his music. As he explained to me, “following me through the many stages as a person and as a musician, to growing up and finding my way.” His path is clearly defined as explained, “music is its own journey, it moves you, it takes you for a ride and making a story out of it in the process.” Those stories take on the own metamorphosis, becoming what you hear on the radio or on a cd.
AT SEA will start their Tour on March 1st in New York at The Knitting Factory, making their way to Texas to play at South By Southwest. No definite dates after that have been arranged as of yet, but they will have them on their website when they are booked.
When I asked Jason if he could be remembered for any one thing, what would it be? That was something he thought about before he answered, giving me the impression that he had never considered that about himself. He worded his answer very precisely, “someone who had something interesting to say and they could relate to.”
Having the most time to devote to AT SEA’s social media, Jason is the band member that posts to Facebook and Twitter.
