Jason Walker grew up in Pittsburgh, singing in church choirs and then in local R&B and Blues bands. He first shined on the national spotlight with a winning performance on TV’s Its Show Time at the Apollo.
Following his TV debut, he moved to New York City and was quickly signed to dance music icon Junior Vasquez’s, label, JVM, where he recorded two albums, “This Is My Life” and “Flexible,” garnering three Top 10 Billboard hits (“My Life,” “No More,” and “Movin’ On”), two Billboard #1s (“Foolish Mind Games” and “Set It Free”) Jason and Tony Moran first met through Junior Vasquez when Vasquez commissioned Tony Moran to remix “Set It Free.” Jason would go on to receive 2 IDMA (International Dance Music Award) nominations including one for Best Breakthrough Dance Artist.
In 2010, Walker released his third full-length album “Leave It All Behind” independently, landing his seventh Top 20 Billboard Dance hit. His eighth release, “Raise Your Hands,” climbed to #17 on the Billboard charts. He followed with “Beat Don’t Stop” (a song that peaked at #5 on Billboard), “Tell It To My Heart” (an explosive re-imagining of Taylor Dayne’s pop classic, produced by Bimbo Jones, that hit #10 on Billboard), “So Happy” and “Say Yes” (his third and forth Billboard #1s).
To support their newly released single “I’m in Love with You,” Tan Man Music has commissioned remixes from some of the top names in dance music, including Rosabel, Moto Blanco, Sted E and Hybrid Heights, Mike Cruz, Tommer Mizrahi, Strobe, Dinaire and Bissen, Boris, and more.
Moran and Walker also re-enlisted videographer Karl Giant, the director of the “So Happy” and “Say Yes” music videos. Giant, in turn, brought in artist Randy Polumbo, whose work has exhibited at the Bass Museum in Miami, Art Basel Miami Beach, Burning Man and Coachella, as well as a few World champion and Olympic ice skaters, to create a visual work of art for “I’m in Love with You.”
2019 proved to be fruitful for Tony and Jason as the pair’s next single, “Perfect Bitch” peaked at #2 on the Billboard Chart. In the fall of 2019, Jason travelled to Albania where he was part of the stunning Albanian television show, Kenga Magjike (The Magic Song). He performed an original song titled, “Uh-Huh” and received rave reviews. He is quoted as saying that “it was one of the best things he has ever been a part of!”
2020 saw the mid year release of “Stronger” on Glitterbox Recordings, and in December of 2020, first set of mixes for “All To You”, his first collaboration with Chicago House Music Legend, Georgie Porgie. In 2021 the next part of that project will sprout legs, including a music video and another set of remixes from the likes of Grammy Winner David Morales and DJ Strobe.
