Coming from a musical family, Jason started playing drums at age six when family friend and legendary drummer, Louie Bellson gave Jason his first drum set. Over the past thirty years, Jason has performed/recorded with such jazz luminaries as Larry Goldings, Dave Douglas, Darek Oles and Maynard Ferguson. In 2017, the Jason Harnell Solo Drum Experience was born! Jason's solo drum concerts are consistently sold out, multimedia events that leave audiences spellbound. His debut solo album, TOTAL HARNAGE is out now.
Jason teaches at University California Irvine and at Musicians Institute and has performed masterclasses all over the world.
