Jason Okamoto

Born in Portland, Oregon, Jason Okamoto has forged his own sound combining classical, gypsy, and Latin American styles. Exposed to music at a young age, Jason began with the music of the Belgian Gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt. This led him to play with several gypsy jazz bands and begin life as a working musician which coincided with the release of his first CD, "Solo Trio.” Using a classical nylon string guitar and incorporating live looping, Jason pays tribute to his music influences regularly throughout the Pacific.
