What is music to you? What does it give you?
Jason Manwill: Music to me is the Ultimate passion. When I start to Create & Perform I am in my own universe. Nothing else matters during that time.

Music gives me the ability for ME to BE the Artist that inspires, influences, and re-habilitates millions.

If you could change the world – what would you start with?

What inspires you to make music?
Jason Manwill: People in general. I look at people’s lives and I write a song about what that are going through, or think of a way to help someone have a better day. I always try to make people smile with my music. If I am smiling and others are while they are listening, I know it will touch and impact millions.
What is the message you want to send with your music?
Jason Manwill: That music and the ability to create is ART. It inspires us, makes us laugh and cry and also lets us see who we are. Music also allows us to change if we choose to, and at the same time is the driving force that helps humanity understand each other better.
How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?
Jason Manwill: Orgasmic. There is nothing like that feeling of being in front of an Audience. I am at home on the stage. Whether it is 50,100,500-10,000; it does not matter. When I take the stage it is no longer about me, its ALL about them. The audience is who buys and purchases the music and keeps an artist thriving in his career. Without them, the Artist would not be as successful. When I see them, I feel so grateful and humble that I get to do what I do and share my message with them each night.
How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?
Jason Manwill: Today I see that musicians on a certain scale have the mentality of being “broke”, while others have great music yet they don’t know HOW to get it out or what is the next step in their journey. In addition Artist’s I have personally talked with, have told me they don’t understand the “Business” and wish they did.
What could be improved is that, there needs to be a new era for the music industry and artists in general. With all the changing topics and social media, the music industry is not what it used to be. Now a Do It Your Self Musician can release a CD from the comfort of their bedroom an make it a hit an even viral if they choose to.
Also we have to figure out a way for musicians and labels from all different sources to be able to work together for the common good of the fans. In that way, there would be a much smoother transition and development of an Artist, Their Music, and Sync Distribution.
What frustrates you most as a musician?
Jason Manwill: When I hear an artist that is ready radio, not think their music is good enough, or they don’t know their next step to make that “Radio Ready” a reality.
Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?
Jason Manwill: Yes, I am a student first. I go to see local artists at open-mics in my local area. I also play the open-mics and give artists positive feedback to further their careers in the industry.
I am always a fan. When I go on stage then I become the Artist.
What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?
Jason Manwill: Good Production. Tight Mix. Great Vocals. Melody should come in around 30-49 seconds into song. Intro should only be 10-15 seconds.
Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
Jason Manwill: Sarah Jane Nelson her new single, “I’m not broken” is radio ready and she is the next Martina McBride in the Country industry.
