ABOUT JASON RICHARDSON
Jason Richardson has been making a name for himself and touring the world multiple times over for a decade now. He has played guitar in numerous established international metal bands such as All Shall Perish, Born of Osiris (The Discovery 2011), and Chelsea Grin (EVOLVE EP 2012 & Ashes to Ashes LP 2014), and is now a member of All That Remains whose accolades include nearly 1,000,000 album sales worldwide, a gold single, and many charting radio hits. In addition to all the bands Jason has played in, he is perhaps best known for his career as a solo artist. His solo career began with the release of his first album, "I", in the summer of 2016. The album features Luke Holland (Youtube) on drums and many noteworthy guitar players such as Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, ex-Nevermore), Mark Holcomb (Periphery), Rick Graham, Nick Johnston and Jacky Vincent (Ex-Falling in Reverse, Cry venom). There are also guest vocal appearances from GRAMMY Nominated vocalist Spencer Sotelo (Periphery) and vocalist Lukas Magyar (Veil of Maya). The album amassed crowdfunding of $33,000+ for an independent release that debuted at #1 on Billboard New Artists/Heat Seekers Charts, #2 on iTunes Rock, and #11 on ALL of iTunes with 7,200 units sold worldwide in its first week. Music videos for the album have reached 7,500,000+ views combined. Since releasing the album Richardson and Holland have toured the US multiple times over and have played internationally in Canada, Japan and Korea. Richardson has also taught at all of John Petrucci’s summer guitar camps and played on stage alongside iconic/legendary guitarists such as John Petrucci, Tosin Abasi, and Tony Macalpine, to name a few. He has been featured on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, had multiple features in Japan’s Young Guitar magazine, and has his own on-going lessons column in Guitar World Magazine. Richardson and Holland are currently working on a second album which is tentatively scheduled to be released by the end of 2019.
