Bio

Jason Treuman can be looked at differently by all the musicians he has played with over his 12 year career. Some see him as a bass player, some as a guitar player. This is because he does both very well. Jason grew up in Little Neck, NY before moving to the Ohio Valley in 95'. In 1999, he teamed up with singer/songwriter Brett Cain to form one of the greatest unsigned bands in the country. Jason played bass and shared backup vocal duties in this band, as well as co-wrote and helped develop arrangements for the CD. The Brett Cain Band put out one record together called "Rise", produced by Pittsburgh legend Norman Nardini. The band toured up and down the east coast for 2 years in support of the record, playing along side such artists as the The Allman Brothers Band, Freddie Jackson, Eric Bourdon, Morris Day and the Time,The Jerry Garcia Band, The Derek Trucks Band, George Thorogood, and countless others.
In 2002, Jason moved to Nashville for a change scenery. After hooking up with Phil Wolfe of Shadow Lane Studios, Treuman went on to work extensively as a studio musician. He played on tracks with Reese Wynans from Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns, Country Legend Marty Stuart and many others. In early 2003, he worked with R&B singer Rickey Godfrey and played bass on "Can't Change My Heart", which went to #1 on the Beach Music charts in South Carolina. Rickey went on to win a Cammy Award for Song of the Year. Through playing with Rickey, Jason had the opportunity to back up Sonny Turner from The Platters, Bill Pickney of The Drifters and R&B Blues legend Ruth Brown. Also, Jason shared the stage with Big and Rich and Gretchen Wilson every Tuesday night for a while during the Music Mafia days with local songwriter, John Phillips. From there, JT went on to play bass for Michael Holloway who was blues guitarist of the year many times over in Nashville. They played blues festivals in Arkansas, Mississippi and Indiana in support of Michaels CD, "Ridin’ This Train." Jason went on to play at the Grand Ole Opry, as well as playing guitar for Allison Bronca for the "Nashville Star" television show.
In 2004, Jason moved back to WV to regroup and be with his friends for a little while. He has focused on doing more studio work, writing music for TV, commercials and video game placement. Treuman, a multi-instrumentalist plays every instrument in his studio and can be heard on almost every recording he produces and many others as a guest musician. He is also a songwriter and arranger that puts all of his heart into everything he does. Jason is currently working on 3 different CDs all to be released in early 2006.
