Rock My World Canada, chapter 63: Jason Collett

[Mike Carr has put together a massive volume on Canadian music history entitled Canadian Alternative & Indie Reference and Collector’s Guide. It’s an incredible discography of hundreds of bands. This is the latest excerpt from his book. – AC]

Jason Collett is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter. He has released eight solo albums and is a member of Broken Social Scene. His latest album, Song & Dance Man, was released in February 2016. It was his work with Broken Social Scene that allowed Collett to give up woodworking and become a full-time musician. Collett became a member of Broken Social Scene, serving as one of their guitarists after the band’s album You Forgot It In People. In 2009, Jason Collett took part in an interactive documentary series called City Sonic. The series, which featured 20 Toronto artists, had him reflecting on his longtime relationship with Kensington Market.
