Jason Michael Wade (born July 5, 1980) is the lead vocalist, song-writer and guitarist with the band Lifehouse. Originally from Camarillo, California, Wade comes from a highly spiritual background, which is shown strongly throughout his music. His parents eventually divorced when he was 12, the effect of which is also a strong presence throughout his lyrics. He owns an array of different guitars, but his favorite and most used seem to be the Gibson brand. Image File history File links Information_icon. ...

Biography

Early life

Jason spent his early years in Camarillo, California, a life suggestive of an all-American boyhood. However, both of his parents were missionaries and most of his childhood was spent away from his native state of California, touring the Far East, visiting Japan, Thailand and Singapore before moving to Hong Kong. Speaking about how he understands firsthand how bleak life can seem without something or someone to relate to, he said, "When I was a kid and we lived in Hong Kong, we lived in a small village and the people there hated us. They thought we were witches bringing trouble to their neighborhood. They lit firecrackers at our door every morning, and they actually stole our cat, cooked it and ate it! I was totally scared and freaked out and I didn't have any friends." [1] A missionary is a propagator of religion, often an evangelist or other representative of a religious community who works among those outside of that community. ...


After four difficult years, Jason's family moved back to the U.S., to Portland, Oregon. When asked why, Jason said, "My parents had a lot of issues. But they wouldn't allow me to see the problems in their relationship. Our family was always peaceful; there was never any fighting or anything. We looked perfectly happy from the outside. It was like 'Pleasantville.' The worst part was that I couldn't acknowledge anything was wrong, so I couldn't do anything about it. I felt completely powerless." [2] Nickname: Location in Multnomah County and the state of Oregon Coordinates: Country United States State Oregon County Multnomah County Incorporated February 8, 1851 Government  - Mayor Tom Potter Area  - City  145. ...


By the time he was 12, Jason's parents had divorced and he'd moved with his mom to the Seattle area. He spent most of his early days there alone in his room, pouring his heart out in poetry. "I was experiencing all the pain anyone feels when their parents get divorced. It opened up all this stuff," he said. "But it also opened up this creative outlet for me. It's funny, because I was never a musical kid - never took lessons, never really listened to the radio. But I suddenly just started writing lyrics and coming up with melodies. We lived in the woods, and I'd take these long walks and the songs would just start happening." [3] Nickname: Location of Seattle in King County and Washington Coordinates: Country United States State Washington County King County Incorporated December 2 1869 Government  - Type Mayor-council  - Mayor Greg Nickels (NP) Area  - City  142. ...


Jason's mother had been musical. "My mom always had a guitar lying around the house," he said. "I finally just picked it up and learned how to play a few chords." Finding a solace in music, Jason eventually began reconciling himself to his new circumstances and settled into his new home. This phase of his life ended, however, when his mother decided to relocate the family to Los Angeles. "I didn't want to move at all," Jason said. "I'd finally made all these friends, and Washington had been a really comforting place for me during the divorce. I thought it would be home forever."[4] But it was there in Los Angeles where Lifehouse was formed and Jason's musical career began. Nickname: Location within Los Angeles County in the state of California Coordinates: State California County Los Angeles County Incorporated April 4, 1850 Government  - Type Mayor-Council  - Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa  - City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo  - Governing body City Council Area  - City  498. ...


Personal life

On January 20, 2001, Jason married his long-term girlfriend, Braeden. They currently have no children.[citation needed]

"I don't have it all figured out. You learn so many things every day, and it's overwhelming sometimes trying to see how it all fits together. I'm starting to realize that each day is a different road and a different journey, and you don't have to have it all figured out; you don't have to have all the answers to everything right now."[5]

Being "just a fan," a music lover like any other, is what Jason is and always wants to be. "My ultimate goal in writing songs is simply to connect with people," he says, "and I hope that comes across in everything we do."[6]


Music career

Lifehouse

At the age of 15, Jason moved to L.A., where he hooked up with bassist Sergio Andrade and began blossoming as a songwriter. "I really didn't know anyone. Serge lived next door and we had a lot of stuff in common, like playing basketball and running," he says. "He'd just started playing bass, so we hung out a lot. We spent all our time jamming out in the garage, writing songs and helping each other get better."[7]


This partnership was the beginnings of Lifehouse, which, after a deal with DreamWorks Records, skyrocketed to fame with their first release, No Name Face. When David Geffen sold his Geffen Records to MCA Records he joined Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg to form Dreamworks SKG, with subsidiary DreamWorks Records. ...


"It's all been unbelievable," Jason says of the band's rapidly accumulating success. "We didn't expect any of this, but we're so grateful to have so many people hearing our songs. I really can't explain how it's happened."


"The best thing about all this is being able to stay on the road," says Jason. "We've been meeting new fans in cities all over the country. It's so cool to hear what they think about the music, and it makes me feel so good when they say that one of our songs has helped them get through a rough time, that they were able to apply it to their own life."[8]


Reluctant to discuss his lyrics in detail, Jason feels they are infinitely open to interpretation. "That's the great thing about a song - a lyric may mean something totally different for someone else than it does for me and still be just as valid," he insists. A case in point is album closer "Everything": "We've been playing it on tour and when kids come up after the show, it seems like they always tell us how much they love that song. They don't really know what it's about, but they hear something in it that connects to them personally. That's why you don't have to tell the whole picture in the lyrics; you give a road to start on that people can relate to."[9]


Recorded the album "Lifehouse" in the recording studio/music label Ironworks owned by musician/producer Jude Cole and actor Kiefer Sutherland.[citation needed] Jude Cole is a rock singer-songwriter who has also worked as a producer, television personality and actor. ... Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland (born December 21, 1966 in London, England) is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning Canadian television and film actor, currently well known for his role of Jack Bauer on the series 24. ...
