Rilo Kiley's Jason Boesel (w/ Dawes as back-up) playing with Dawes and Cory Chisel at the Bowery Ballroom this Friday
Jason was recently Paste Magazine.com's "Artist of the Day" - They chatted with him about his new role as bandleader, how Conor Oberst stole his chorus line, and his secret crush on Taylor Swift: http://bit.ly/cuGKpM
About Jason Boesel: For the last 15 years, LA-based drummer Jason Boesel has been planted firmly behind the kit, keeping time for the likes of Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes, The Elected, and more recently, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band. Boesel was inspired to pick up the guitar and write his own record after his friends raved about the first song he ever wrote: 'Hustler's Son.' Now, a few studio sessions later with an a-list group (Benmont Tench, Dave Rawlings, Blake Sennett), Jason Boesel released his solo debut for Team Love Records: 'Hustler's Son,' out now.
