Former SAIGON KICK guitarist and vocalist Jason Bieler has just released two songs from his new project entitled Owl Stretching. The first songs released include the iconoclastic All At Once and the cinematic Satellite, both can be listened to and downloaded below.
After a brilliant ten + year run with Saigon Kick, Jason changed his focus and spent the last few years producing bands like Skindred, SikTh and Nonpoint at Bieler Bros. Studios alongside head engineer Matt LaPlant. Jason has also co-founded the indie label powerhouse Bieler Bros. Records (Karnivool, Fiction Plane, Deathstars, A Silent FIlm, Will Haven and many more). Jason has written, produced and performed on releases that have sold into the millions, he has also composed for major film soundtracks like American Pie, Miami Vice, Sky High and more. Jason’s tour history includes, Ozzy, The Ramones, Faith No More, Cheap Trick, Extreme, Soundgarden, Primus, Kings X and more.
Owl Stretching finds Jason truly in a “lunatics running the asylum” scenario. “Saigon was always penalized for being way too diverse, at the time the industry couldn’t fit us in any of their nice little marketing compartments. So learning life lessons from that I have created an even more musically diverse endeavor,” laughs Jason. Owl Stretching has created its own perfect world, no rules or structure and certainly no plans beyond today.
