Hailing from Devonport Tasmania, 35-year-old Jason Delphin is returning to the Blues on Broadbeach stage for the fifth time in a row! His music is inspired by a rare combination of punk, blues and jazz or — some may say after hearing him play — ‘cow punk’. His one-man-band style includes the use of genuine kick and snare drums, high hats, and his signature three & four-string cigar box guitars.
Jason is committed to keeping it “sounding dirty” with unpredictable and improvised raw sounds. Triple J’s Chris Thompson has commented: “Jason Delphin’s music is an unpredictable dynamic fury of all my favorite elements of music. His skill and passion in every performance is mesmerising.” Currently recording and producing his 5th album, Delphin works energetically around the East Coast circuit, playing up to seven gigs a week. He uses this time to “practice” by developing and honing his skills with each gig. The remainder of his work time is spent in his studio where he experiments with different instruments and works on new compositions to add to his existing body of work — which is not inconsiderable. Northern New South Wales is where Delphin calls home and playtime consists of simply enjoying living beachside with the surf and lifestyle providing easy inspiration. With a fresh album and single released, you can expect to see Jason up and down the East Coast this year.
