Singer, guitar player, and songwriter, Jason Wilber has traveled the world as lead guitarist for artists like John Prine, Greg Brown, Iris DeMent, Todd Snider, and Hal Ketchum.
Jason Wilber’s work with John Prine includes the Grammy Award winning CD Fair & Square, and the Grammy nominated CDs Live On Tour and In Spite of Ourselves (which spent 32 weeks on the Billboard Country Charts). John Prine’s penchant for duets has put Jason in the enviable position of accompanying the legendary singer-songwriter on recordings with Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Josh Ritter, Patty Loveless, Iris Dement, Trisha Yearwood, and Sara Watkins, among others.
John Prine often introduced Dave Jacques as one of the hardest working musicians in Nashville. "Everybody wants him" says Prine, "I'm fortunate to have him on tour with me." As more of Prine's introductions go, Dave once worked in a shirt factory ("And now he's wearing one!")
When not on tour with John Prine he's playing back up with the likes of Steve Forbert, Nanci Griffith, Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Patti Griffin, Tommy Womack, Will Kimbrough, Amy Rigby, Greg Trooper, Elizabeth Cook, Jeff Black and so many more.
