Safely Down: The Songs of Jason Jackson is officially released and available for purchase.

Last summer, the members of the matthew show returned to Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee to record a tribute album to the late Jason Jackson. Jason was an incredible songwriter whose passing left a vacuum in the hearts of those who knew and loved him, and a collection of wonderful songs that cried out to be recorded.

Produced and engineered by Grammy winner John Hampton, the album features a stellar group of musicians including Matthew Broyles, Clay Anderson, Jeffry Simms, Ed Rogers, Beth Brown, Mark Williams, James Dunn, Paul Shapera, Nancy Giammarco, Tony Drewry, Adrian “Doc” Cook and David “Blackie Graham, with vocals by Joshua Reed, Talley Summerlin, Aimie Lovett, Nathan Hamilton, Shotgun Friday, Doug Kwartler, Sydney Wright, Kevin Russell, Dunn, Brown, Broyles and Rogers.

Ed Rogers has been entertaining audiences for well over a decade as a singer, songwriter, guitarist and drummer. With his powerful voice and distinctive flat-picking acoustic guitar style, Rogers crosses genres to explore the connections between country, folk, rock and blues music. He draws on personal experience to write vivid, sometimes offbeat original songs.

Ed began performing in Austin, Texas in the late 90’s. After migrating to Fort Worth, he found inspiration playing with an outlaw band of pickers and songwriters called Gypsy Troubadours. Rogers released Misery and Gold in 2003 and began performing solo, sharing the stage with luminaries like Bruce Robison, Jim Lauderdale and the late Steve Fromholz. An experienced studio musician, Ed has recorded at world-class facilities including the legendary Sun Studio and Ardent Recording Studios, in Memphis, Tennessee.

In addition to his solo work Ed plays guitar and drums for various acts, including the matthew show, No Class and Chris Allen Curtis. An new album of original songs is slated for 2015.
