  Guitarist and singer from Vancouver, Jason Buie has made his mark over the last two decades, performing throughout North America, Europe and Japan, and from theaters to festivals, he has had plenty of time share the poster with big names like Jeff Healey, Taj Mahal, Robert Cray, John Mayall or Buddy Guy. Brilliant interpreter and songwriter, the Canadian bet to build his music based on solid foundations made of blues of course, but also funk, soul and rock, all components that have attracted him the favors of fans but also professionals who do not miss superlatives when they evoke the first two albums of the guitarist. The time has come to split a third gal, Jason Buie and his accomplices Dave Webb to keyboards, George Fenn on bass and John Hunter on drums have carefully selected thirteen titles of which seven are original and have taken care to find a middle ground between the very expressive guitar of the frontman and the very inspired piano of his acolyte. Considered one of the best blues guitarists in Vancouver, Jason Buie assumes this status enviously and does not distort his reputation by offering us riffs and pique from blues rock to blues pure juice with real imagination. Launched on an ultra-classic "Fool From The Start", "Driftin 'Heart" takes us to pieces not piqued worms like "Government Man", "Stay The Night" or "12 O'Clock Check Out" also a sincere tribute to artists as different as Sue Foley whose tittle track he appropriates, to Amos Milburn with "House Party" and finally to Jimmy Rogers and Jessie Mae Robinson to which he borrows respectively "You're Sweet" and "Cold, Cold Feeling". Jason Buie is also a co-founder and artistic director of the White Rock Blues Society, which promotes genre in any genre. the Vancouver area by organizing concerts, among others. An artist to discover urgently!
