Born and raised in small-town Nebraska, Jason Mayer approaches music like any true Midwesterner would; with hard work, a blue-collar attitude, and a desire to tell stories. Mayer has been playing live for nearly 15 years, as a solo musician and with several bands over the years. Most recently he fronted the country-rock band Wasted Highway, and has since decided to focus on a solo career. He mixes country, rock, folk, and bluegrass, with a unique voice and style to make his sound unmistakable. You can catch him playing on big stages to small bars, no venue is too big or too small, as the love of music and the love of interacting with an audience is what drives him. This desire has led him to travel all over the country to perform his songs and meet new people!
Mayer was nominated, with his band Wasted Highway, for Outstanding Country Artist of the Year by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards 2 years in a row! He has shared the stage with many national artists such as Jimmie Allen, David Allen Coe, Reckless Kelly, Cody Canada, Jason Boland, Kylie Frey, Read Southall Band, Josh Ward, the Davisson Brothers, and more. Mayer has released 4 original albums with various bands over his career and has had 24 different songs that he wrote or co-wrote receive radio airplay. His highly anticipated debut single “Old Man” was released on July 14 and is available everywhere music is sold. It is already garnering high praise and consistent radio airplay. Singles “Here For a Good Time” and “Beer Makes it Better” were also released on September 29, 2021, and single “Songbird” was released November 17, 2021. The last single “Too Damn Drunk” from Mayer’s debut EP will be released in February 2022, along with an official music video. Mayer will embark on a nationwide tour that will run through summer of 2022 to support the release of his new music. Original songs are mixed with a seemingly endless supply of cover songs that provide something for fans of every kind of music. Live shows are high energy, sing-along, dancing fun!
