Punk accordionist and world troubadour Jason Webley is described by the Seattle Times as "one of Seattle's most talented musicians". Known for his huge gravelly voice and a battered porkpie hat that dances around his head as he stomps out the beat, Webley's relentless touring schedule and legendary live performances have built him a loyal cult of followers across North America, Europe and beyond (he is especially loved in Siberia.)
A true one-man-show, Webley does all of his own booking, runs his own small record label (Eleven Records) and personally manages and designs his own web-site and struggles to maintain profiles on a plethora of social networking sites. But Webley's specialty is his live performances and Webley's involving his audience in those performances - most concerts end with the entire crowd locked arm-in-arm, singing at the top of their lungs.
In addition to his solo work, Webley organizes and headlines the annual Monsters of Accordion tour, runs a camp for adults and children called Camp Tomato, and performs as one half of Evelyn Evelyn with his friend and collaborator Amanda Palmer.Jason Webley website
