Fourth-Generation Montana artist Jason Wickens grew up on his families ranch outside of a small rural town in North Central Montana. At an early age he began playing guitar and developed a passion for music and specifically songwriting. But It wasn't until his brother returned home from college at TCU (Texas Christian University) with a pile of obscure Texas country artists that he began to take songwriting seriously.
In June of 2017, Wickens teamed up with award winning and Grammy nominated producer Wes Sharon (John Fullbright, Turnpike Troubadours, Parker Millsap) at his studio 115 Recording in Norman, OK. To accomplish the hard hitting Texas/Oklahoma sound that heavily influenced the songs, Sharon enlisted the help of members of the Turnpike Troubadours Ryan Engleman, Gabriel Pearson and Hank Early, which resulted in a fresh new sound with subtle overtones that are uniquely rooted in Montana. Although on first listen you could easily categorize the music as country, the 9-song record provides a diverse offering of Folk, Americana and even moments of Roots-Rock.
