Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Jason Collett is a Canadian singer-songwriter. A member of Broken Social Scene, he also tours and records on his own. The best songs don't just tell a story set to music - they capture a moment, encapsulate a feeling and draw in the listener, in a way that's at once singularly personal and completely universal. When Toronto singer-songwriter Jason Collett was mulling over titles for his new album, the by-turns effervescent and elegiac Here's To Being Here, he stumbled across a line in an anthology of poetry by his friend Emily Haines' (Metric) late father Paul, a well-known avant-garde jazz poet.
