Artist Biography


“Music is spiritual, it flows through us, moves us, and it heals us. It sparks us to ignite positive change within.” – Jason Rylan
Jason RylanThe saying goes, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” However, for one Las Vegas-based songwriter, what he does in “Sin City” is blasted out to thousands of people on the radio. Jason Rylan is the name of this singer, songwriter, and producer. This California-born artist is electrically eclectic. He has an innate ability to blend EDM, electronica, dance, and pop together with a little rock. The result is an amazing amalgam of music. Jason crafts his compositions, so they’re meaning-filled musings written to lift others up.
Jason Rylan’s artistic history began long before he can recall. “My parents were musicians, and they’d jam in the garage when I was a newborn,” explains Ryan. He continues, “They didn’t have a baby monitor, so they hung a mic above my crib when they practiced in the garage.” “Since day one, there’s always been a mic near me and this club and dance-styled producer inside of me,” says Rylan. Perhaps it’s all part of a Jason Rylan’s journey – composing from the cradle to the rave.

Jason taught himself to play keyboards and guitar by ear, with his family helping as well. As a child and teen, he also took traditional lessons for guitar and vocals. He went on to attend Southwest Missouri State University, 
studying Film Production and attaining a degree in Mass Communications. Working at several FM radio stations in Springfield, Missouri, he had the opportunity to work with Disney Magazine and Rolling Stone.
“I’ve always had a love for visual arts and instrumentation,” offers Rylan. This combination is apparent in his musical interests that include eccentric, filmic and innovative artists that do the same, such as Madonna, Kesha,and Lada Gaga. However, his musical tastes don’t stop there and include classic rock acts such as Van Halen, The Doors, and The Beatles.
Over the course of the last decade, Jason Rylan has released three full-length albums that include his debut, Walk Away, which he launched in 2005. The album coincided with his business venture with Sky Ambient Productions, a Vegas-based audio-visual production company. The most successful single from the project was “Go-Go Boyz,” inspired by the nightly dancers in Las Vegas. The single also had club releases throughout the U.S.A., and a world-wide remix contest hosted by Sony Pictures Digital Media via AcidPlanet.com. Jason followed Walk Away with a CD entitled 2012, which hit the airwaves in 2010.
“My first two albums were a hybrid of electronica, dance blended with pop and rock,” Rylan recalls. In 2015, he released his most recent album, The Charm,which exemplified his evolution as a songwriter over the past ten years. “I wanted The Charm to be edgy, eclectic, and inspiring. The Charm showcases hip-hop undertones, a blend of pop, rock, electronica, and dance.

Creating the album was a team effort, and Rylan relied on the talents of Talbot Snow, Sham Lewis, Carolyne Scott, and Jedd Boyd. “This gifted team was essential, and they contributed a lot to the album,” adds Rylan. “Help is on the Way,” was the first single to hit the airwaves. The Charm stands as a dazzling display of Rylan’s ability to compose across multiple genres.
Go ahead, call Rylan a “genre junky,” and he’ll take that as a compliment. His creative goal is to make each song unique – both in substance and style. Jason is not afraid to be an avant-garde artist. Jason isn’t afraid to take a gamble with his music in Vegas, and with his positive musings, he usually wins big. Living in “Sin City.” Rylan relies on a higher power for inspiration and is perfectly happy as long as there is a mic in his hand. After all, for Jason Rylan, that microphone has been there - all the way from the cradle to the rave.

Jason Rylan's The Charm
(LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, USA) OCTOBER 15th, 2015 - Is the third time the charm for Jason Rylan? He believes it is. Rylan has an uncanny ability to compose across a myriad of genres. He does this almost magically in his third release, The Charm. With a treasure-trove of fifteen tracks, the album is eclectic, edgy, and inspiring. The Charm showcases hip-hop undertones, a blend of pop, rock, electronica, and dance. If you’re not feeling “The Charm” lately, don’t worry - “Help is on the Way,” - which is the title of his single to hit the airwaves.
The Charm stands apart from his last two releases, Walk Away and 2012. Rylan explains, “I wanted this project to be a special ‘pay it forward’ type of album. My goal was to make each song unique, with familiar catch phrases - all hanging like charms from a bracelet.”Jason incorporates depth and meaning in the album, which is one in which people can relate. Jason says, I feel that music is very spiritual, it flows through us. Music moves and enlightens people, it ignites change. I believe it can heal people.” Rylan proves this with his first spiritually-fueled single from The Charm entitled, “Help is on the Way.”
Rylan was inspired to write “Help is on the Way” after seeing video footage of various disasters and noticing how people pull together to help each other during trying times. Jason is dedicating “Help is on the Way” to various worthy causes. He explains, “This song is for the homeless, the hungry, and the volunteers - no matter what the cause - to help others to find the light.” Other key songs are the pop/dance explosion of “Ain’t Nobody (Got Time for That,)” and “Skyline” which are compositional collisions of pop and dance with a dash of retro-rock. “Outloud” reflects Rylan’s love of 80s music with an almost Depeche Mode-ish styled synergy.
Recorded at Sound Mastersof Las Vegas, the project features the talents of Carolyne ScottSham Lewis, Jedd Boyd and Talbot Snow, all who helped Jason bring the project to fruition. As a musician, Rylan is called a “Retro-futurist” for a reason … He can straddle two eras at once - all while blending genres from each. So, call Doc and get the DeLorean up to eighty-eight miles an hour, because Jason Rylan can take you back to the future. In many ways, Rylan’s third time is The Charm. It’s magical music.
