Jason McNamara is a drummer and street performer from Dublin. Known for his virtuosic improvised drumming with Acid Granny and dancer Jessie Thompson, Jason has been developing an exciting new solo set. The addition of electronics (synth, sampler, and cassette walkman) to these shows has opened up a new dimension of sonic energy that builds to sound like nothing experienced before. Jason has performed across three continents over the past decade. He has released albums independently, working with punk, hip-hop, electronic, afrobeat, experimental, Brazilian music, and field music, all of which help influence his live improvised shows.
