Although Jason Carter's family background lies in bluegrass and country, his music is a mixture of Southern Rock, Pop, and Soul.

Carter's grandfather was an accomplished fiddle player and his father was signed to Bobby Smith Productions in the sixties. Jason's "Uncle Judd" was known as the best mandolin player in North Alabama, and was offered a job traveling with the Bluegrass Legend, Bill Monroe, but elected to stay in Alabama to continue with the "Rhythm Rangers".

Jason began his music career playing in local clubs in Tuscaloosa, Auburn and Birmingham. During this time, he started to hone his skills as a songwriter. His father, Larry, began to like what Jason was writing and decided it was time to do a recording session to see what the material sounded like in a studio. Larry Carter called upon musician friends he had recorded with during the 70's. After the first session, Larry and Michael Goodrich, who co-produced the album, decided that the material was strong and that Jason needed to do an album. Jason Carter's debut album "Hello My Friend" is the result.
