North Carolina-based singer/songwriter Jason LeVasseur will perform songs from his new album, “Driver is The DJ,” Saturday, Oct. 1, in the Cellar Pub.
LeVasseur has been touring nationally all year as he continues to write new songs. He was selected as one of the 30 Best Bands by Cornerband.com, and was voted the 2005 Best Musical Performer on CampusActivitiesMagazine.com.
LeVasseur’s excellent lyrics, rendered in his “gritty” singing voice, combine numerous musical influences to form his own style, which he describes as acoustic guitar-based rock.
“That is the easiest way to say it, because it is not folk, but there are some songs that are folky. It is not pop, but there are some songs that are poppy. It is not rock in the context of contemporary rock bands.”
