Artist Statement & Biography
I've been running from the hell hound of song for twenty five years now – nipping at my heels, demanding more; if I don't put pen to paper, then I dare not imagine what may happen... My process consists of internalizing the human experience, molding it into a story, then matching each story to a melody that complements it. I'm inspired by my writing partner, Thomas Gunn, to create art that speaks to the beauty of the communal human experience: the joy, the pain, the struggle, the love.
Jason Pollock is a self-taught musician who began his career around 1993.

He wrote other top ten songs, including "Water's Edge" and "Rock Crown", and recorded three studio albums with the band. He left 7M3 in 1999 to pursue his own musical vision.
