I'm not a fame chaser. I'm a working bass player. I prefer to be a member not a leader. I'd rather have my career in the hands of others and focus on my craft. My favorite words are appropriate, accurate, artistic, contextual, emotional and work (in the proper context).

Hey, what up brothers.

I'm a working man. I take sessions almost any time I can get one. I do stand in gigs usually in Blues, and Country but I'm not afraid to comp any style. I do "Join" bands on occasion but it has to be a 'creative' endeavor or a 'reliable' source of income.

BIO: I moved to Oregon to be a Bass Player. That was the plan. We founded "Morpheus" (Some regional renown, limited national exposure, a big project) when I moved to Portland OR. We played live till we bled. We recorded "God of Dreams" Morpheus, 1992 at "CastleRockenStien" in Portland, OR. It was during The "Morpheus" sessions, early 90's, that i started to record tracks as a session player. At the same time, in between runs, I spent two years training in theory and composition. I was also lucky enough to learn from, and study, Gary Fountaine from "Nu Shoozs". An excellent and versatile, funk, R&B artist. (Lost everything) In Eugene I founded "The Idiot Savants" a talented, satirically minded funk\Punk Project (limited interest, mostly in Europe). At this time I was doing random bits for "Three Rivers" (small studio in Eugene). In the end we decided to record "Mel" The Idiot Savants, 2001, at "blind Pirate" studios outside of Eugene OR. (Lost everything) I moved to Klamath Falls Oregon for a good paying gig with a touring blues Band "The Craig Allen Blues Band". A good band. Regional. Good money for a working bass player. Did that for four years. Lots of big shows. Good crowds. While with Craig I was afforded the opportunity to record some excellent live tracks. "Live @ The Iron horse" The Craig Allen Blues Band, 2010. It was recorded Live at at the Iron Horse Rodeo in Lake Selmac, OR. and formalized in "Wing an a prayer" studio in Medford, OR. (Lost everything). I'm moving to Vancouver WA. I have my hands and interest invested in more then a few new projects and I even picked up a little new studio time. So that's me to date with a ton of bands, people, and memories missing. Let the tracks speak for themselves. After all, how much do you really need to know to hire a quality bass player. "Peace".

Currently:

Studio:
I'm anticipating the release of an awesome, brand new set of recordings, by Jon Jone's, featuring Sebastian "Brother Mason" Jaross (me) on the bass. Its some of the most delicate work I've done to date. I'm very proud of it and can't wait to share.

Live:
I'm only taking occasional stand in shows right now.
Also:
I've been doing some live work with "Dee Dee & The Bandits". An eclectic Country band with some good players. It features William Creswell, lead, "The Cowboy", rhythm, Jandy Irion on drums, Sebastian "Brother Mason" Jaross (me) on the bass, and of coarse Dee Dee on Keys and lead vocal.
Also:
I will finish forming "YT" very soon. The best band that only happened a few times. I still want J.j. Hannum on lead. Hes good. I'd love to put Kyre Smith on the drums at this point. Still looking for that magic vocal. I'm going to post some lives from the "YT" experiments on https://new.myspace.com/sebastian.jaross

Writing:
I have two new Solo projects I'm looking to develop with the right group of artistic individuals:
#1 "Dreamer" (Alternative: funk, R&B, Singer Song Writer) in need of production.
#2 "Still F'in'" Crazy" (Alternative: Metal, Rock, Singer Song writer) In development phase (Still writing).
I like to create in a pubic forum so I can benefit from a wide array of input from many sources so both are posted and updated regularly on https://new.myspace.com/sebastian.jaross

Finally:
I just want to thank the people featured on these recordings:

First: A big thank you to Craig Allen for graciously granting me permission to use these tracks for display purposes.
