Artist Spotlight: Jason Upton
By Mark Bowyer
Like so many other people these days, with a troubled economy comes the necessity for each of us to wear many hats. In Jason Upton’s case, his journey through life has made him wear the hats of worship leader, inspirational teacher, husband, father, songwriter, and independent recording artist. Jason’s Key of David Ministries is a powerful source of Godly wisdom and musical inspiration. With at least ten albums to explore, it becomes more of a history lesson of a decade gone by—where God taught Upton through lyrics and chords and unlocked doors of opportunity for future tours.
Jason’s MySpace music page, along with a more personal page at http://www.jasonupton.com, lay out everything about his life in the open. A proud father, and highly sought after speaker/performer, the seriousness of a sermon is always coupled with the melodies in his music. Songs like “You Are Holy,” and “How to Know if We Are Born,” speak specifically to growing closer to God and swept away out of the corruption of this world into the glorious holiness of the next.
Living a simpler life in Wisconsin with his wife and three children, Jason Upton’s career comes in third after his faith and his family. However, that doesn’t mean that he is ready to stop doing what he loves. There is a strong maturity, urgency, and a strong feeling of hope conveyed in this music. Anyone seeking to unlock your heart’s door to let Jesus in would highly benefit by including Jason Upton in his or her music collection.
