I, Jason Nemor Harden, am a musician who specializes in vocals and saxophone.  I am also and actor. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and am also a citizen of Iceland.  I became involved in music while playing professional basketball in Iceland. My most important skills are my singing, writing and saxophone playing. I am self taught as an musician, producer, actor.  What sets my voice apart is that I have a bass-baritone range with a 3 octave range which comes in handy for back vocal work.  As a saxophonist I don't lock myself into a specific genre.
