Jason Tyler Burton is a singer songwriter originally from Kentucky who now calls the mountains of Wyoming home. He grew up across the Kentucky river from Daniel Boone’s original fort where his household listened to classic country, bluegrass, and appalachian folk tunes in addition to more contemporary singers and songwriters.
While classically trained on the violin, he eventually picked up the guitar his senior year in high school and started writing songs. A lover of words and stories, he quickly gravitated to wordsmiths such as John Prine, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin as inspiration.
His musical resume is extensive. As a multi instrumentalist, he has been a part of bands such as the Union City All Stars, 6 foot 2, and Tie Hacks. He has also shared the stage with Bill Mallonee (One of Paste Magazine’s top 100 living songwriters) and fellow Kentucky native Ben Sollee.
Having lived the nomadic life of a seasonal Park Ranger and rock climbing guide his songs reflect the journey and a search for a place to call home. His story telling is honest, poetic, and layered. His songs invite you to lean in a little, and really listen.
