Team Love is now giving away a download of Jason’s insatiable jam “I Got The Reason #1″ (click for MP3). The song originally surfaced during his touring days with Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band and quickly became a fan favorite. The album version features Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Blake Mills, Jonathan Wilson, Nik Freitas.

Just last week, Boesel stepped up front for his first two shows in Los Angeles. The first was a Haiti benefit with Jenny Lewis and friends. The second was with Michael Runion and JJAMZ. David Rawlings was there to play back up with Boesel.

JASON BOESEL CONFIRMS FIRST U.S. TOUR W/ DAWES, Daytrotter Premieres Two New Songs, Pre-Order Available

Jason Boesel has confirmed his first solo U.S. tour in support of his debut album ‘Hustler’s Son’- out January 12 on Team Love Records. Though he’s known for his trenchant drumming work with indie heavyweights Rilo Kiley and Conor Oberst, this tour finds Boesel trading in sticks for guitar and taking lead as frontman. Folk-rock group Dawes will join him onstage as his back-up band on all the dates. The tour kicks off February 5 in Boesel’s home state – California – and will take him cross-country to New York City and back, supporting the co-bill of Dawes and Cory Chisel And the Wandering Sons.

This morning, Daytrotter posted three unplugged versions of songs from ‘Hustler’s Son’ (two of which are premieres). Boesel, accompanied by Blake Mills on lead guitar, starts the set with “French Kissing,” a song he described to Daytrotter as a “discombobulated love jam,” followed by the eerie album opener “Black Waves.” Boesel finishes with a solo performance of “New World Mama,”

Please welcome Jason Boesel!

JB_HS_Cover_300dpi For the last 15 years, LA-based drummer Jason Boesel has been planted firmly behind the kit, keeping time for the likes of Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes, The Elected, and more recently, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band. Boesel was inspired to pick up the guitar and write his own record after his friends raved about the first song he ever wrote: ‘Hustler’s Son.’ Now, a few studio sessions later, Jason Boesel announces his solo debut for Team Love Records: ‘Hustler’s Son,’ out January 12, 2010.

Boesel headed into the studio in March of 2009 with a core group of collaborators: Mystic Valley Band member Nik Freitas, Blake Mills (Band of Horses), and producer Jonathan Wilson (Elvis Costello ‘Momofuku’ and Jenny Lewis ‘Acid Tongue’). He eventually sought out the additional talents of Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), Orenda Fink (O + S, Azure Ray), David Rawlings (Gillian Welch, Old Crow Medicine Show), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), and fellow Rilo Kiley member Blake Sennett
