Biography

"I've had a Guild JF30 12 string for years that I bought in the 90s and also recently got a vintage '67 F30 6 string. And now with the addition of my new F47R, it's great to see the Guild workmanship and quality hasn't changed. I have a great collection of beautiful, great playing and sounding Guild guitars!" -Jason Orme

 

I started playing guitar in 9th grade after begging my parents for a guitar for a couple of years. I had a friend in 7th grade, Bob Sloneker, who was in a band playing bass already and he said "if you played guitar, we could have a band!". This sounded like a good idea to me. I loved music and was getting hand me down records from my older siblings... Beatles, Zeppelin. My older brother Rob turned me onto LOTS of music as well... Bowie, Hendrix, etc. Also, my mom is an amazing singer/performer and there were lots of talented actors and singers around from her theater company when I was young. Both of my parents are huge music lovers. Mostly classical and jazz.

I've been playing with Alanis Morissette's band since 2001. Done all of her tours/TV appearances since then and played on the records 'So Called Chaos' and 'Jagged Little Pill Acoustic'.

I was also fortunate enough to do some touring recently with Sarah Mclachlan and have played with Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Vertical Horizon, Natasha Bedingfield, O+S, Chris Stills, Idina Menzel, and more.

I also write, sing and play guitar in a rock band called Desktop Rulers with some great LA based musicians (Joel Shearer, Zac Rae, Blair Sinta, Joe Karnes) . We're releasing 2 EPs very soon and have already placed songs on some TV shows. Other than that, I spend as much time as possible writing and doing some producing in my own studio in Hollywood, CA.

Upcoming shows will be Southeast Asia with Veritcal Horizon and also some TV promo and live shows with Alanis this summer. We shot a Guitar Center/Direct TV live set with her recently that should air this year. It was the first show that I was able to use my new Guild F47R and it will be coming on tour this summer as well!
