Jason Taylor Hobbs

Singer-songwriter with a gift. Great voice, Great player. One of only a few real deal musicians in Middle Georgia!

Lately he's been hosting a few "Open Mic Nights" around the Middle Ga. area. He has a REAL PA system and his experience at running sound virtually insures that you will sound as good as you possibly can.
Jason has the wisdom and insight of many years in the music business, and a childlike excitement and wonder that comes with humility and a love of the craft. He's willing to share his well earned knowledge with anyone who feels they need it. He's one of the few musicians in Middle Ga. that I know I can trust to give me honest feedback; which is the gigging musicans' most valuable (albeit most elusive) resource.


He is a gifted player, a great singer, and all-round nice guy. His audience loves him because he genuinely loves them, and it shows in every song he plays.

Check him out any chance you get.

I had the pleasure recently, to catch him in a 'listening room' format which is very different from a bar gig. To fully understand what that is, read this.

  In a post regarding his performance in the Macon Music Listening Room, this summed it up....

"I was there and Ican only imagine how it must have been onstage-It's a lot more intimate than yelling "show us your tits" to a crowd of drunk,angry college chicks (at least the ones I have at my shows)...everybody in there was hanging on every word he said. I know it was nerve-racking as hell, but you couldn't tell by his performance. He did it with the personal attention he gives all his shows. But afterward, i could tell that he was awed and humbled by the experience. You did awesome Jason- I took alot from it"

You can find his schedule, here.

I absolutely love hearing Jason sing, he's always effortlessly on pitch and his intensity is perfectly metered. It's a real and pure pleasure.
And if he sings with you, you know you're going to hear some perfect harmonies!
Humble, appreciative, and nice as can be, to boot. Much love for Mr. Hobbs.
