Jason Maynard is a Brisbane-based, Singer-Songwriter who has played extensively throughout Australia and overseas.

With his previous band, Griffin, he achieved high rotation commercial radio play with two independent singles, This World and Perfect Nightmare (the video clips to these two tracks airing on RAGE TV).

Jason has performed at the NEMO Music Festival and Conference in Boston USA, and to the FUSE Festival in Adelaide in 2004, and has supported acts including Pete Murray, The Androids, Evermore and Dave Graney.

Several of his songs have been short-listed by major US acts and Hollywood music score selectors, and made the finals of both the International Songwriting Competition and the Q Music Song Awards.

After working extensively over 4 years with ARIA-nominated Procer/Engineer, Anthony Lycenko (Pete Murray, Xavier Rudd, Busby Marou), Jason has released his debut, self-titled Album, and lead single, “Begin Again”.

Jason recently won a competition to support renowned Australian singer/songwriter Rick Price - chosen by Rick himself.

Maynard is a surprising performer worth catching live. His serious pop smarts were crafted at the altar of all things Finn, but are taken to an unexpected and interesting place with a little bit of country soul - reflective, sometimes gloomy, sometimes anthemic and joyous.
