Jason Loughlin's creative guitar playing has supported artists such as Amos Lee, Rachael Yamagata, James Burton, Lesley Gore and Nellie McKay. Jason Loughlin has recently released his debut record Peach Crate on Big Pop Records to critical acclaim. He will be performing new works with guitarist Luca Benedetti.
"Jason Loughlin wears his guitar-playing heroes on his sleeve, down his arms and into his fingers, which ties directly back into his soul. Loughlin has chops to burn, but he uses them in tasty, easy-going doses that dance across the ears...we hear an instrumentalist of great range, taste and joy. Add to that a killer rhythm section...and you’ve got a record that packs a wallop. Peach Crate is an impressive debut recording". Frank Alkyer, Downbeat Magazine
"(FOUR STARS) Wow. All in all, Peach Crate is an excellent debut in a style that you just don't hear enough of nowadays." Sean Westergaard, All Music Guide
"Uncannily well-constructed launching pads for great picking. A great “guitar” album that could easily sit alongside those of his inspirations." Dan Forte, Vintage Guitar Magazine
"The Brooklyn-ite's debut album wondrously fits the space that had been empty since jazz-country genius Danny Gatton. It's the closest that modern music fans might get to a fretboard meeting between New York City and Nashville." Todd Lazarski, Express Milwaukee
"He possesses that greatness that makes it seem like it’s all very simple for him. I’ve enjoyed this CD probably as much as I enjoy 88 Elmira St(Danny Gatton). and I just can’t figure out a way to be any more complimentary than that!" Buster Fayte's Rockabilly Romp
