Jason Maynard is an Australian Singer-Songwriter who has played extensively throughout Australia and overseas.

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.

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.

Hey all,

As those of you close to me may know, my wife has a pretty nasty illness. Unfortunately, it really knocked her around last year, and as a result things for us got pretty tough.

As a result, we've been through some massive life changes: relocating interstate for some family support; changing homes; and coping as best we can with my wife's condition. So, unfortunately, the album launch/release has taken a bit of a back seat temporarily.

Hi everyone,

Merry Christmas :-)

As things are starting to really ramp-up with the arrangements for the formal release of my album, I'm putting together an e-Newsletter.

In it, I'll be sharing with you my musical journey - upcoming performances, special events and offers, etc., and I'd love for you to be part of the adventure.

So, to get the ball rolling, I'd be very grateful if you could send me an email address to send the e-Newsletter to. Please note, it will NOT be a weekly bombardment (I hate that as much as anyone), but just a semi-regular email with a message from me personally and updates on my music. You will have the option, of course, to "unsubscribe" whenever you want, and I will guarantee that your address and other details will never be disclosed or used for ANY other purpose than this e-Newsletter from me.

I would love to have you on board and part of this process as it slowly, but surely, comes to fruition.

I hope all is well with you and yours .

If you're stuck for a Christmas gift idea and would also like to help those in need, I'm donating $10 from EVERY CD copy of my album sold to the Red Cross and their continued support to the victims of the Philippines typhoon disaster.

I'll be running my bit right up until 31st of December, so get on board and help make their Christmas a little better

And you'll also be supporting independent music.

Hey all,

A couple of things:

1. PLUS: for every copy of the album I sell on CD via my website, I am donating $10 to the Philippines Typhoon appeal via the Red Cross.

SO PLEASE, go to
and order a copy now to help out those in desperate need, and hopefully we can give them some hope for Christmas.

2. The album has been receiving some awesome reviews - check it out:

"Jason Maynard has just released his debut album reflecting an impressive body of work which has been in the making for many years dating back to 1999. From early days in the garage band The Martins to heady days with the band Griffin who achieved high commercial rotation in Canberra and NSW for two independent singles in addition to the band's videos airing on Rage, Jason like most musicians worth their weight in gold, has seen it all.
All of Jason's musical and life experiences have led to this point where his career is about to, as he puts it in his first song, "Begin Again". The album is a rich tapestry of well -crafted songs. Jason is the Australian voice that the nation is looking for. With his great vocal talents and song writing abilities, how he has managed to slip back under the radar remains a mystery. Track 1, "Begin Again" is co-written with Alex Malota. All remaining 13 songs have been written solely by Jason over several years. The songs are full of structural surprises and shifts, comprising both great musical composition and impressive lyrics. The build from slow acoustic to full on rock, with echoes of the Moody Blues at times, is pure genius. Brilliant harmonising thrown in, pretty elements and clever lyric analogies only add to the magic. Jason is a master of the rock ballad and has discovered how to craft great songs.
It is hard to pick a favourite. "Spider" builds to a complete rock anthem, "Those Were The Days" will have you reflecting, while the lyrics in songs such as "Treading Water" - "So hold on, hold on, can you throw yourself a lifeline?" are hard to beat for their raw and honest beauty.
Jason adds guitars, keys, bass and percussion to his vocals. He is supported on the album by ARIA nominated Engineer/Producer Anthony Lycenko (guitars, keys, additional bass), Lincoln Retallack (bass), Geoff Green (drums) and Steve Coulton (guitar solo on "This is Real").
As a talented singer/songwriter, it is hoped Jason achieves the acclaim he so richly deserves for this great album with hopefully many more albums to come in the future as he experiments with his love of music, his beautiful use of words and his fascination with the great bands of the past such as the Moody Blues.
Having supported acts like Pete Murray, Evermore, Dave Graney and The Androids back in the days of his band Griffin, it is hoped those heady days will soon return for Jason. Recently chosen by renowned Australian singer/songwriter Rick Price for a support performance, it would appear Jason is on his way.
Order yourself a copy of Jason Maynard debut album and enjoy!

"Congratulations to Jason Maynard on his debut album. This singer/songwriter writes from the heart with well-crafted lyrics of sadness, regret, love and happiness. The songs are catchy and melodic.
The musicians are perfectly attuned to his voice which is gentle and soaring yet commanding.

If I wasn't with community radio I would not have had the joy of hearing this young man. His music is so enjoyable and needs to be heard by everyone.
