NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Alternative country music legend Jason Ringenberg is renowned as the lead vocalist and ringleader of seminal roots band Jason And The Scorchers. His "twin brother" (wink wink), Emmy Winning children's music star Farmer Jason, has been drawing sellout crowds with his rollicking delivery of catchy songs and good times. "Rockin' In The Forest" explores a musical woodland where children experience natural wonders and receive subtle lessons on ecology, fitness, and history. He performs at schools, festivals, public libraries, museums, and other performing art spaces all over the globe. Disney's Family Fun Magazine named "A Day at the Farm with Farmer Jason" one of the top five children CDs of the year. Jason & the Scorchers received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Americana Music Association in Nashville, TN in September.
For over two decades, first as front with country-rock pioneers Jason and the Scorchers and now as an internationally acclaimed solo artist with three solo CDs under his belt, former Illinois farm boy Jason Ringenberg has blazed a path as both innovator and interpreter of American country music. Jason has spent the past 20 plus years touring the U.S. – even Alaska, all over Europe, and Australia. A hard-working performer who travels light – just him, his guitar and his trademark yelp-Ringenberg has earned the moniker "the rockinest folk singer that ever lived!" The Scorchers recently celebrated their 20th anniversary with re-issues on Yep Roc Records. They toured with artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Carl Perkins, and REM among many others.
