Jason Collett (300)

Jason Collett.

Set List

  • "Roll on Oblivion"
  • "Out of Time"
  • "Charlyn, Angel of Kensington"

World Cafe - As a member of Broken Social Scene — the wildly prolific and musically incestuous Canadian music collective — singer-songwriter Jason Collett has recorded three shimmering and uplifting indie-rock albums. In a session with host David Dye, Collett plays songs from his new album.

Collett's music combines '70s pop/rock and Canadian country ballads, the latter a style he's been honing since the late '80s in alt-country bands around Toronto. His latest solo effort is Here's to Being Here, which — like the work of his other band — is an uplifting and tuneful collection of pop songs.
