Jayson Norris creates his distinctive sound of acoustic, roots-rock by combining his love of singer-songwriters and indigenous music together with harmonies and melodies that come naturally from his cultural and musical heritage of New Zealand.
Based in London and known for his looping and amazing live shows, Jayson performs and works all over the globe playing festivals and headlining his own tours. Over the years Jasyon has performed and collaborated with many leading artists including Tiki Taane, Jason Kerrison, INXS and Blue King Brown.
Norris released the independent full-length albums A Basket Full… in 2006 and Freedom To Live in 2010, the latter being signed to Loop Recordings as Freedom 28 in February 2011 for New Zealand/Australia release and gaining him a place on the Fly My Pretties January 2011 national tour.
Freedom 28 flourished on the NZ top 40 album and independent charts. Lead singles 'Love Someone' and 'Window' both made the NZ singles top 40 with 'Love Someone' reaching number 1 on Juice TV’s Channel 63.
Jayson’s latest 5 track EP Save My Soul was engineered and produced by Tiki Taane. Save My Soul captures Jayson’s dynamic live sound whilst retaining his roots and delivering a current edge. Jayson’s forthcoming e.p. Eroded is due for release in the coming weeks...
Jayson’s songs are beautifully crafted and highly licensable and can be heard regularly on the Australian soaps Home and Away and Neighbours.
