Multi-platinum and multi-award winning Singer/Songwriter Jason Kerrison has other interests too, and is a Meditator, Surfer and Hemp Farmer. Jason does this all from New Zealand. Jason is no new comer to the music industry, leading his rock band OPSHOP and forming a Hip Hop group called The Babysitters Circus. See below for his awards and accomplishments. I was interested in his experimental project of recording his first solo EP at 432Hz instead of standard concert pitch 440Hz. As stated in his press release “Music based on 432Hz is said to transmit beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature. The universal music of sacred geometry.” Interesting! Ok, back to his latest release called ‘I Will If You Will’. I liked the song right from the start, catchy music, then the addition of Jason’s amazing vocals caught my attention. ‘I Will If You Will’ is a song that stayed with me for a long time, singing it in my head for the rest of the day. Take a listen here to see what you think.
