Jason Casterlin has given the music-loving world Old Stone Church, a hook-laden collection of 11 songs that runs the gamut from windows-down Americana rock to Sun Studios-era country. Jason’s band is a throwback to the heyday of Yoakam’s Babylonian Cowboys – a 6-piece outfit that can make you holler or make you weep from one track to the next. Guitars, pedal steel, keys, drums and bass complement Jason’s lyrics and voice the way a hand-picked band should.
Jason has been a mainstay on the Hudson Valley live music scene for over two decades now – first in one of the region’s most beloved original/cover bands, Maria’s Basement, founding member of the alt.country band, The Woodcocks and now the (fearless leader) of the Hudson Valley's hottest top 40 country cover band the Hillbilly Parade.
In Jason's career he has already shared the stage with the likes of The Violent Femmes, Spin Doctors, Seven Mary Three, Blue Oyster Cult, Rodney Atkins, Craig Campbell, Eric Paslay, James Otto, Jimmy Wayne, Easton Corbin, Billy Currington, Blackberry Smoke, Ryan Bingham, to name a few. Old Stone Church recorded in 2012 was inspired by Jason’s life with his wife, their golden retriever, and their home overlooking the Shawangunk Ridge – a setting as suitable as any for a Yankee making country and roots music. A follow up EP was recorded in 2013 entitled "Love Lives".
