Jason Burnstick was first inspired to make musc by his older brothers.As soon as he started playing, Jason was drawn into the music. He committed to the idea of being a musician when he was about 14 years old. When he was 16, his stepfather made a prediction that he'd become successful as a musician and that he should make music because he loved it. He says, "I didn't take it too seriously at first and it didn't hit me until I was playing in Australia for the second time. I realized that everything he'd said had come true."
He adds, "My stepfather had given me this lap slide bar from the 1920's or 1930's. I knew it was from a slide but I didn't understand how to use it or anything like that. I kept it and I still have it. I keep it in my guitar case for all of my shows. It's a reminder of those times.
