Who is Jason Isaacs?

Jason was born in Newcastle and grew up with the dream of travelling the world and playing music, ambitions that gained roots one Christmas morning when his parents gave him a saxophone. Self taught, he locked himself away for hours at a time practising with total dedication.

By the age of 21, when his taste for adventure took him to Thailand, Jason was a highly accomplished musician, able to support himself through regular gigs with a rhythm and blues band in Bangkok.

Moving next to New York, personal highlights of his Big Apple year included playing with Blue Lou of the Blues Brothers fame and singing with the legendary Tony Bennet at an Emmy awards party.

Jason spent much of the next ten years in Munich, Germany, then Marbella, Spain, where he performed to growing crowds night after night. He soon realised he could bowl an audience over not only with his saxophone playing but also, indeed especially – with his voice. By the time he moved back to Newcastle, Jason the singer was in full flow, and a love of the rat pack classics meant he was destined to seek out big band accompaniment and star in his own theatre shows.
