From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jasin Thomason (born Jason Wayne Thomason in Franklin, Indiana on March 4, 1976) was the guitarist for American rock band The Ataris on their first record, Anywhere but Here. After meeting Kris Roe at Karma Records in Greenwood, Indiana the two began talking about music and immediately became good friends. They arranged to play music together and used the material previously written by Roe to form The Ataris. He moved to Santa Barbara, California with vocalist Kris Roe in 1997 before the recording of the album. Afterwards, he moved back to his hometown of Franklin. Jasin is credited with writing parts of the End is Forever opening track "Giving Up On Love", and played a short acoustic set with Roe as part of the video extras of the 2003 re-release of Anywhere but Here.

Jasin has also played in other bands such as Project Bottlecap from Indianapolis, Indiana. Project Bottlecap formed in 1998 as a solo effort and began playing as a full band in 1999 after the addition of its original members Adam Derloshon (Bass), Daniel Hill (Drums) and Pat Simms (Vocals). In later 2001 the band added Brad Walters (Guitar) and began working on their first release, "Days and Seconds". "Days and Seconds" was released in March 2002 and was followed by a West Coast tour in support of The Ataris and Breakdance Vietnam. Returning from tour the band began working on their second release, "Saving Rock 'n Roll". Toward the end of its completion the band said farewell to bass player Adam Derloshon, and drummer Daniel Hill and brought two people in to replace them. Alex Bond would begin playing drums and agreeing with his recommendation the band also added Terry Sharp to take over bass. "Saving Rock 'n Roll" was released by the independent Indianapolis, Indiana label Skeptic Records in May 2003. After a boost in popularity following the release of the album the band planned for a fall tour that would later be titled by the band as "The Black Cloud Tour". Tension between band members rose as they began writing their final, unreleased album that would be titled "The Divine Current". The band broke up in March 2005 and reformed one last time to play a show Jasin Thomason arranged in October 2005 to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims.

Jasin Thomason and Pat Simms continued playing music together and started a studio project with friend, Anchor Recordings LLC[1] Studio Owner/ Operator, Brandon Robertson. The project would be called Fake Sinatra after a conversation Jasin and Pat previously had. They continue to write music as a studio group.

In 2005 Jasin Thomason and Pat Simms began playing music with friend Patrick Dow and formed the band "Sex Before Marriage" with former "Project Bottlecap" bass player Terry Sharp and drummer Aaron Barker.

In 2007, after experiencing some frustration working with other musicians, Jasin then began his solo project Folk[2]. He has since written several songs for this project, recording them in his house and releasing them via Myspace. He has plans to make professional recordings of the songs from this project before the end of 2007.
