Vector Arena is proud to present Jason Webley at the Great South Pacific Tuning Fork. The Seattle-based troubadour and long time Amanda Palmer (of The Dresden Dolls) collaborator, is known for his fusion of folk, punk and experimental music, using his voice and his accordion to weave stories and tunes together to create a powerful sound.

While he started as a street performer in 1998, Webley has since released eight albums and numerous collaborations on his own Eleven Records label, including Evelyn Evelyn, with Amanda Palmer. He has taken his fiery accordion-driven music all over the world and performed everywhere from the 2014 TED conference to a former Siberian gulag.

A strong believer in the power of the internet and community, Webley used Kickstarter to crowd-source his most recent project: Margaret, a book and album telling the unlikely and magical story of a scrapbook found in a San Francisco dumpster.

Praise for Jason Webley:
“One of Seattle’s most talented musicians, a singer-songwriter with a rare gift for crafting timeless songs that approach Waits and Leonard Cohen territory." - Seattle Times

"Webley owned the audience. The fans danced along the aisles for song after song as he took them on a journey through sadness, happiness and just plain craziness." - The Stranger

"Webley howls at the rafters with the courage and conviction of a long-gone sailor, and seduces the candlelight with melodies as delicate as a gossamer balloon; he pumps the bellows like a Romanian wedding singer and feathers the keys like a desert drifter." - San Francisco Weekly
