It has always been my dream to come to the United States, home of so many of the inspirations that had put me on my musical path. The deep and endless valleys between skyscrapers, an endless prairie, or endless highways – all of this is hard to find in Germany. Folk, country, and Americana music – it doesn’t really find its way across the ocean that often. The never ending motives of home, travel, and longing just seem to lend themselves so much better to America—an America that I only knew from photos, books, movies, and of course music. I fell in love with an image of this country so deeply that I needed to be a part of it. I had to be here to be able to truly capture American culture in song.

I moved to the States during a very dynamic and emotionally charged time and it turned out the country I would find held so much of what it had promised and yet was so entirely different. I have lived here for over two years, now. I have traveled; I have tasted the longing. I have missed home, and I have found a home. And I have met people. Many different people from many different places. I made friends, got to make music with them, and I learned so much. It took me two wonderful years to catch my breath and to find my voice and now I’m finally ready to share my music with the world. People from everywhere have worked hard and helped me to make it come to live and I am forever grateful.

My time in the United States has taught me countless lessons but the most important one might be that as someone who wasn’t born here, I can still become a part of this dream. However, I know that this is not true for everyone. I was extremely fortunate to be welcomed into an amazing community with people from all over the world. Only through the help of this community did I get to create something I had always dreamed of. I found myself in a studio in New York with talented colleagues that I’m very happy to call my friends to record American music that I had written. I hope you can hear the enjoyment, the love, and our bond in this music. I got to learn what meaning this label can truly bear and I am proud to present my music – Made in America.
Jason Consolacion
Jason Consolacion
Jason Consolacion is a NYC-based singer-songwriter who's style of rock is influenced by the folk subtleties of Paul Simon and the pop/R&B sensitivities of Stevie Wonder. His most recent album, a self-titled EP available on Apple Music and Spotify, was accepted by the Recording Academy for Grammy consideration in 2014, and tracks accepted for consideration in 2015. The Houston Chronicle described Jason's music as, "a comfortable blend of pop hooks, easy guitar riffs and confident vocals."
Yucca King
Yucca King
Yucca King is a four-piece rock band from New York City fusing punk, pop, and noise influences to write music that is all their own. The band is a formidable and energetic live act, bouncing from melodic pop hooks to dirty riffs and howling punk over the course of a 45-minute set.
The band has been chiseling their sound over the past two years and will be releasing their first album, The Ghost of Everyone this fall. Yucca King will celebrate the release of their debut LP on October 20, 2017 with a release show at Arlene's Grocery in New York City.
