    I'm kicking off Throwback Thursday's with a photograph of me playing in the streets of NYC with Occupy Guitarmy.  This time of acitvism was integral to my life and a huge node of the shift toward social equity and justice across the globe.  Now more than ever we need to push forward with Black Lives Matter, and Climate Justice.  We are the change.  Music for the revolution! 

  • New Jason Brock Single Breathes Hope Into A Summertime of Crisis

    Posted June 15, 2020 at 2:15 a.m. to Jason Brock Public | Comment

    “We’ve come a long, long way.  We’ve got a long, long way to go.” 

    Ventura, CA. June 18th, 2020  Would you recommend a song from an artist you’ve never heard of before?  Of course not.  But if that song captured the moment, you might change your mind.  Jason Brock’s new single “Dubbers and Rex” could be that one unknown track you’ve been looking for.   

    With a Jack Johnson meets Lou Reed meets Cheryl Crow vibe that is both bluesy and uplifting, Brock’s latest recording is like a cool drink on the hottest of summer days.  The guitar melody sparkles while the lyrics and vocals remain solid and honest, asking the deeper question, “Where do we go from here?” 

    “I think we’re all looking for some meaning right now.” says Brock,  “I was just strumming my guitar on the steps one night, feelin’ stunned and confused, and the song just kinda came out.” 

    Recorded during quarantine at Brock’s home in Ventura California, Dubbers and Rex is the first in a series of singles scheduled to be released online over the next few months.  The single will be accompanied by lyric videos and live streaming performances from his social networks.  As we enter the 2020 summer season filled with questions about peace, justice and how to cope with COVID-19, Dubbers and Rex is a positive song with meaning.  It’s a perfect add to any contemporary playlist.

    Jason Brock is well known as an administrator of ccMixer.org posting his own Creative Commons remixes under the pseudonym Spinningmerkaba.  Over his career he has recorded and performed with Grammy award winning artists John Jones, Steve Ferrone along with MP3.com artist Emily RIchards, Orangehand, and The Art City Monsters.

    Reach Out
    Jason Brock

    On the pavement
    In the dirt
    Bruised and bleeding but never hurt
    I know why you put us down
    I think it's time to take a look around

    Because the time has come to change
    A new direction a different way
    We can make it if we try
    If we stand up we won't be denied

    Reach out
    Reach out to one another
    Reach out to our friends
    Reach out

    In the cities and in the towns
    In the country and all around
    A new generation a new way of life
    So put down your weapons and face the light

    We gotta reach out

    Help me baby
    I'm down on my knees
    I'm begging you please

    Reach out to one another

  • Who Has The Pandemic Blues?

    Posted May 16, 2020 at 2:32 p.m. to Jason Brock Public | Comment

    Pandemic Blues is a classic ragtime track that features the musical talents of ccMIxter artist unreal_dm. The lyrics speak to the experiences of having to shelter in place with family.  It's a lighthearted look at a world in chaos from the balconies of quarantine.
    With COVID-19 virus sweeping the globe, we are once again reminded of the fragility of life, of the importance of the simple things. Pandemic Blues takes us to a place of old radio programs and newspaper boys on the corner. The lyrics are simple yet tell a story that is filled with questions, contemplation, and a touch of humor. If your a fan of the classics, then Pandemic Blues may well ease the tension during one of our time’s most difficult struggles.
